We will assign a FS (20TB) to backup with RMAN.

What permissions should have a FS for backup with rman?

Note: I know which are the parameters for the FS mounting (Doc ID 359515.1).

OS: AIX 5.3

RDBMS: 11.2.0.3 (RAC) regards Amin

Regards

Amin

    It depends.  I don't believe rman runs setuid (check on your own system with ls -l `which rman` ).  So you probably are using either the oracle user or an rman user who is part of a db group to do the backup.  The directories need to allow write by whatever group is writing to it.  If you are using the oracle user, then the backup directories could have a 700 protection when owned by the same user/group.  There are more details in the docs about the osoper group.  It depends.
