Plan to use Oracle 11g R2 on SUSE Linux 11 r2. For now, I'll use an external hard drive for backup. Say, I attach the HD via a USB to the database server.
Can I use RMAN to schedule a backup that will copy the data over to the external HD (from the FRA)? For instance, I schedule 2:00am daily, to transfer the incremental data, and 2:00am weekly, transfer the full backup copy to the external HD, etc.
