Implementing RMAN in 9i

Vidhya.V Newbie
Currently Being Moderated
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
