    Question Export automatically every day ?

    Can it export automatically every day?
    My software environment is Windows 2000 + Oracle 8i.

    yes you can, schedule it via the windows scheduler. Export is not a good backup method by the way

    I wouldn't rule out export as a backup. It's a perfectly good method of backing up *some* data. Understand it's limitations and using it where applicable.

    I use it to backup my rman catalog and a few small databases with infrequent writes and long recovery windows.

    rman=backup
    exp=copy

    If all you want to do is copy some data for archival purposes, export may be appropriate if you understand the implications of using it. As far as a backup methodology, stay away from it. See http://marist89.blogspot.com/2005/05/backup-top-11.html for my backup tips.

    Backups are for begginers anyhow, just let it fly!

    Exactly, if there is ever a problem tell the developers to use key entry, that'll get their attention.

    Hmmmmm

    Export:
    - no need to shutdown db

    Cold Backup:
    - faster restore (no need to rebuild db & import is slow)
    - can roll forward with archlogs if required

    I think cold backup wins.

    DaPi,

    Has anyone ever told you that you have a very large brain.

    I can't think of the reason we're doing an export of the rman catalog, but I think it was something like portability or how to restore the catalog if you don't have the catalog in a dr situation, or something .. it seemed like a good idea at the time.

    Get this, I had an exp of a 42gig database that took hours to export and 17 DAYS to import (clobs)... long story, but it had to be export/imported.
