    Hot backup every day . (shell written for hot backup)

    Archived Redologs backup every 4 hours.

    Export backup taken once in a day .
    Full Backup (par file wtitten in unix script )

    Archived logs kept - last 15 days .

    No Cold backup.

    -- Pravin

    But no tool used for above backups in our shop. Bcoz of the cost .

    Pardon my ignorance, but why will backing up oracle software be of any benefit.

    Also Is your Hot backup full every day or incremental.

    Thanks

    If you lose the filesystem that contains the Oracle software, your choices are:
    1. restore the previous working software from tape.
    2. re-install oracle

    I prefer to restore the working software so I don't have to remember what options I had installed for this instance.

    Yes, Full Hot backup every day. In my environment, my Mean Time To Recovery (MTTR) is so short it doesn't make sense to use Incrementals.

    I believe BCV is restricted to EMC platforms only...

    in UNIX it is easier restoring software than install

    if you work in windows then itīs up to you

    BCV stands for Business Continous Volume.
    EMC means EMC corporation, Boston,USA, a network storage company.
    I think EMC name comes from the famous equation E=MCxC,
    Einstein's theory about energy and mass. I am not sure.

    1. Hot backup every day during the slower times.
    2. Archived redo logs backed up every 8 hours. Deleted with the Hot backup.
    3. $ORACLE_HOME backed up once a week.


    Jeff, do you use a shell script to do hot backups of datafiles and archived redo logs or do you use veritas?
