    RMAN Backup failure

    On trying to do a full backup using "rman backup database plus archivelog" it stopped halfway through as it had run out of disk space. My problem is that I don't know whether to delete the files it did create or do another backup(after I've gained some space) but will it continue where it left off?

    Please can someone advise & what commands I should use.

    We are using Oracle 9i Release 9.2.0.3.0.

    Thanks, Ali

    It depends on the type of backup. On level zero, you can just delete the files and the backups in the repository will become obsolte, and then do the level 0 backup. Or you can just do a cumulative backup that will include the files that were not backed up since the last backup.

    Rman Backup Failure

    Sam thanks for responding.

    How do I find out if the backup was level zero? and when you say I can delete the files do you mean from the o/s or actually from rman?

    All I've been told to do is run backup database plus archivelog;

    Thanks again.
