"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Say more if you have specific needs.  Conceptually, one commonly creates a full backup image and adds incremental updates; repeats the process; then arranges for obsolete sets to be routinely expunged.   Lots and lots of searchable references, but watch out for the info specific to your O/S and RDBMS versions.

Hi

Not sure if this is answering your question, but when i perform a full backup i do something like this

rman target / log=/path/rman_backup.log
run{
ALLOCATE CHANNEL c1 DEVICE TYPE DISK FORMAT '/Path_where_backup_will_be/%U';
BACKUP FULL DATABASE PLUS ARCHIVELOG;
BACKUP CURRENT CONTROLFILE;
}

YOu can add more channels if the information is hugh
