Are there any useful queries or free tools that you could use to identify oracle databases which havent had a recent backup? Say for example as DBA you've inherited 30 new Oracle Databases and you want a quick way to ensure there is a backup RMAN job configured per database and its been backing up the databases - how would you do these, via a SQL query? via a piece of softare? MSSQL has a multitude of tools to run over MSSQL instance to see which databases have had a recent backup and which havent. I assume oracle will have as well.

You could query the V$BACKUP_xxxx views.
Perhaps "V$BACKUP_SET_SUMMARY"?

Yes you can get the info mation in data dictionary views as mentioned in above post and if you have configured catalog DB then you can use the below mention views.

rc_backupset_summary
rc_backup_set

Also you can check the below site for more info.

In order to be SURE you have good backup, connect to rman and execute this:
RMAN> RESTORE DATABASE PREVIEW;

Open in new window

The results will indicate what you would need to restore the db and (if you have catalog) if the backup files are available.
