    Hot Backup

    Hi all,
    I am doing a script to do hot backups (archive mode) every week for my database.
    I am not sure about doing things in the right steps. The steps to do things are:

    1. Switch logfiles
    2. Backup Datafiles
    3. Backup control files
    4. archive current log
    5 switch logfile

    Do I need to backup redo logs and where?
    Am I missing something

    Why don't u use RMAN to accomplish all the tasks or u can use RMAN to execute your script.Which redo logs?.If they are archived redo logs then u need to back them from their destination directory to tape and also on the hard disk at one location for purpose of fast recovery.

    If you are on version 8 or higher use RMAN.
    You can find some scripts (OS as well as RMAN) on this site.
