3> CONFIGURE DEVICE TYPE DISK PARALLELISM 1 BACKUP TYPE TO COMPRESSED BACKUPSET;

RMAN-00571: ===========================================================

Why use a 10g enhancements page for 9i command?

My guess is it is the COMPRESSED keyword since it talks about backup compression in the 10g enhancements link you posted.

I'm afraid I'll have to object to you accepting your own post as the solution.

Didn't I mention compression was likely the issue and why?

>>Whats the basic objective to this portal .. To earn points or to resolve issue

The main point to the site is for people to find answers to their questions.  They can do this two ways:  Either ask a question or search the knowledgebase for an accepted answer to a question.

When they find that someone else has asked the same question, all you would need to do is find the accepted answer and it should answer their question.

The problem comes in when people do not properly accept solutions to their questions.  The 'accepted' answer may have nothing to do with the question.

The people that answer the questions are all volunteer.  The points are just our reward for taking the time to help others solve their problems.

The grade tells others how well we did at answering the question.

This is why the correct grade and accepting the correct solutions to the question is very important to any questions asked.

But i had a situation earlier in my question where i was questioned why i assigned some one Grade B not grade A and i was asked for explaination.. Are we suppose to spend extra time on expalining why this grade was choose and why not grade was choosen .. Does not it looks that there is a chase for getting grade A .. Even if the solution has been provided by pasting URL of the website . Rather explaining in the elaborative way

Look at who questioned it?  It was me.

>>Are we suppose to spend extra time on expalining why this grade was choose and why not grade was choosen ..

Take a look at the link I posted in the previous question.  It was a link that explains the grading system.

If you didn't feel the question was properly answered you should explain why to the Experts or allow them to provide additional information on something that wasn't clear before giving them a penalty.

>>Does not it looks that there is a chase for getting grade A ..

You can click the Request attention link and ask a Moderator to reopen the question so you can close it properly.

>>Even if the solution has been provided by pasting URL of the website . Rather explaining in the elaborative way

This is a long topic to discuss.

In a nutshell:
Some times a link is the correct answer.  Say the question is "where can I download XYZ"?

Some times it would take too long to try to explain things in enough detail in a Q&A forum like this and a link can explain things better or the link has already explained it.

There are also a few members that troll for points by just posting nothing but links.

The decision on what type of post the link was in is up to you but again, before providing a penalty grade, you should explain what would be necessary for an "A" grade.

Otherwise, the Expert can challenge the closing and ask Moderators to get involved.

The question asked was why the RMAN command you were using wasn't working.

What post answered that question?  That should be the post that is accepted.

I'll again have to object to your accepting your own answer after I pointed out that the problem was probably compression.

You can accept your own answer if you figured out the answer yourself without Expert help.  It happens all the time.

In this question, the answer was posted before your 'answer' that pretty much told you what the answer was.

No problem and sorry for the confusion.

This is a great site and I hope you stick around long enough to get used to things.  Once you get the hang of things, it should go a lot smoother than your first few questions have.

The Help link I posted has a lot of great information that will help explain things better than I can.
