    Consistent backup

    Shutdown the DB and backup using RMAN is consider a consistent backup. Does copying datafile after issuing 'alter tablespace tab1 begin backup' consider a consistent backup?

    It is inconsistent backup. But you can fully recover your db with this backup and archived logs.

    A cold backup = consistent. Hot backup or online backup using RMAN = incosistent (u need archivelogs to make them consistent.)
