    Can I do 2+ database backup's in one RMAN session?

    Platform RedHat 3/SuSe 8
    Ver 9.2

    I want to backup multiple databases on one allocated "channel". Is this possible?

    Example script:
    CONNECT TARGET sys/pwd@DB1;
    run {
    allocate channel t1 type 'sbt_tape';
    backup database format '/oracle/backup/DB1/%u';
    }
    CONNECT TARGET sys/pwd@DB2;
    run {
    backup database format '/oracle/backup/DB2/%u';
    release channel t1;
    }
    exit;

    Why would you want to do that?

    Just thinking I'd save the couple of minutes it takes to queue the tape up between each database backup.

    I logged a TAR and basically they said I couldn't do it that way.

    I'd really like some constructive help here.

    What's a good way to backup multiple databases and keep the tape drive hoppin'?

    Well you could invoke two simultaneous rman sessions, have you given that a try? Also does your tape device support streams so that you might really get it hopin?
