    Implementing RMAN in 9i

    Vidhya.V
      Hi Team,

      I am a new bie to RMAN concepts. I just went through basic concepts and tried to implement RMAN in one of my test server which is Oracle 9i.

      I have given few configurations and executed the below command through RMAN prompt.

      BACKUP
      FORMAT '/opt/backup/RMAN/%U'
      DATABASE;

      This backed up all .dbf files successfully but its consuming space.

      So, i need to try Compressed RMAN concept. Please let me know if compressed backup is supported in Oracle 9i.

      If yes, Kindly give me the basic command to implement.

      I tried the below command. But its throwing error.

      RMAN> BACKUP AS COMPRESSED BACKUPSET DATABASE;

      Please suggest.

      Thanks,
      Vidhya
