11g RMAN backups - backupset directory not created

Postby jrmtl » Thu Nov 14, 2013 1:23 pm

Hello,

I am confirguring some hot backups via OEM and cannot find which parameter will create a directory structure while creating BACKUPSET in the flash_recovery_area
At the moment it is creating files under the root like this ....PNOO9JRE_1_1

i.e I would like a date directory structure like this c:\flash\database_name\backupset\2013_10_12\.....

What is the parameter that sets this ?

thx
JR

Hi.

If you remove any backup locations or formats you've modified, the default is for backups to go into the FRA.

Thanks Tim...

I had this line which was not allowing for a backupset date directory structure...

CONFIGURE CHANNEL DEVICE TYPE DISK FORMAT 'H:\flash_recovery_area\xxxx\%U';


i removed it with

CONFIGURE CHANNEL DEVICE TYPE DISK CLEAR;
