    I have a rman cold backup script.

    I cannot use alter database close which I believe internally does a shutdown and a startup mount.

    I have tried within the rcv script to do
    sql 'shutdown immediate' I get an error invalid sql statement.

    Any ideas?

    Here is my RMAN script (9i) - perhaps you can get ideas.

    set snapshot controlfile name to '/backupora/wmsp/OFFwmsp1_t20020627.ctl';

    run {
    shutdown immediate;
    startup mount;

    allocate channel c1 type disk;
    allocate channel c2 type disk;
    backup full
    filesperset 4
    format '/backupora/wmsp/OFFwmsp1_t%T_s%s_p%p'
    tag full_offline_20020627
    (database);

    backup
    filesperset 10
    format '/backupora/wmsp/OFFarchwmsp1_t%T_s%s_p%p'
    tag full_offlineARCH_20020627
    (archivelog all);
    sql 'alter database open';
    release channel c1;
    release channel c2; }


    =========
    Any place above where you see a hard coded date, I dynamically pieced together with a shell script.

    SHUTDOWN and STARTUP should be placed outside of run {}

    calvin,

    This script has been running 7 days a week 3 times a day for 3 databases (21 times a week) and running fine!

    However, I do believe the way it is inside the {} is a 9i feature.
