Backup of a database on a Compute Instance (OCI)

djwest Member Posts: 30 Blue Ribbon

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.

cd /opt/oracle/oak/pkgrepos/oss/odbcs"

But obviously there is no such directory on the compute instance.
