can rman FTP backup ?
Posted on 2006-05-29
I have 800 GB database, it became impossible to backup to disk due to space limitation. can rman FTP the backup piece to the media server during backup?
I know rman did not backup to UNC mapped drive, so FTP would be a good solution. if rman can not do this, then any have script to do the following:
put the tablespace in backup mode
ftp all files to the remote media server
out the tablespace online.
I could not find any way that I can ftp files while I am in sqlplus prompt. I can call extrenal ftp to to the job, but I have about 300 datafiles that have unique names, but belong to diffrent users and directories, therefore, I don't want to write 300 scripts!
