    RAC RMAN BACKUP Recovery FOR  Oracle APPS Application

    Gaurav Ahuja
      Hi,


      We have an Application which is similar to Oracle APPs application and We have a RAC Database at Backend.

      As I am a Oracle RAC DBA and never worked as an Oracle apps DBA.

      Each Week or month We have to deploy a patch on Our Database which are kind of sql changes to Database and before we applying we need to backup our Database.


      I am very comfortable while applying patches on Single instance Database:-

      I Usually shutdown my database and backing up My Database(Conistent\cold Backup) before applying patch.

      and I have a Flash back on both option I am having for my Database.

      Problem:-
      But in Production I have RAC Database, on which I already configured Hot Backup.

      FlashBackup Feature is there with me, but Not reliable.

      I want cold backup along with my existing hot backup, and want to restore same if something goes wrong.

      Since ASM is configured so we have only option RMAN backup.

      IF possible kindly Share your knowledge and Experience of your to handle Such Problem.
