including readable timestamp in RMAN backup pieces
When I do a backup in RMAN, it allows me to specify the name of the backup pieces via "format". However, it only provides %t to specify the timestamp, which is a number of seconds elapsed since a certain time. Is there a way to specify in my RMAN script that creates backup pieces with more readable time like 2003-05-29 as part of the filename?
I searched through the documents and am pretty sure in 8i, I can't make it include current date as part of backup piece file name. However, as gopi mentioned, in 9i, there is a %T option let me do that. Too bad I am still on 8i.
