Backup of a database on a Compute Instance (OCI)
We have a database on a compute instance.
I need to back it up.
I cannot shutdown the database for long enough to do a backup (OCI backup)
I would like to do a RMAN backup., preferably to Object Storage.
Easy enough with a DB System or Bare Metal , follow the documentation ( https://docs.cloud.oracle.com/en-us/iaas/Content/Database/Tasks/backingup.htm )
I can't see how to config the compute instance with the RMAN backup service
Step 2 in the DB system says
Change to the directory that contains the backup module
But obviously there is no such directory on the compute instance.
Any ideas ?
I could back up the db to the FRA and then use the OCI backup to take it to Object Storage ,... but I'd like the option
