Why use RMAN at all.. You can configure veritas directly to satisfy all your backup/restore/refresh needs. RMAN is slow, cumbersome.. we are maintaining backups of 660 Gig production database using veritas entirely bypassing RMAN.

Originally posted by samx18 How do you bypass RMAN and take a hot backup through Veritas only.
When we select backup type Oracle in veritas it uses RMAN scripts only to perform the backup.
I'm definitely not learned on this subject but from the marketing material (if I understand it correctly) there is something called Block Level Incremental (BLI).
I do not understand how when a commit happens and gets written to the redo files on disk, how BLI at that exact moment, captures the delta in the redo disk file and preserves it (the block) on the backup media
