    Controlfile RMAN backup

    user130038

      Hi

       

      If I have configured the RMAN option for controlfile backup using:

       

      RMAN> configure controlfile autobackup on;

       

      Do I still need to do this:

       

      sql "ALTER DATABASE BACKUP CONTROLFILE TO ''${CTRLBKP}''";

       

      I have an RMAN backup script (written by someone else) which issues the above SQL after the backup is completed.

       

      My understanding is that if RMAN is automatically backing up the controlfile, there is no need to run the above SQL.

       

      Please advise.
