change RMAN backup destination
This is supposed to be easy but I can't find an answer...I've been trying to find out how to change the backup destination in RMAN when I back up (not copy) the whole DB or a tablespace, eg.:
allocate channel c1 type disk;
By default, on Win2k, the backup sets go to DATABASE folder under ORACLE_HOME. How can change it to have it backup to a different location? I don't think "backup database" has an option to specify destination folder.
Look for FORMAT command in RMAN documents.

user the CONFIGURE command to configure default location for the disk device type:
CONFIGURE CHANNEL DEVICE TYPE DISK FORMAT '/backup/ora_df%t_s%s_s%p';
It is better to ask and appear ignorant, than to remain silent and remain ignorant.
