Command table

The following table describes the commands available for use with the Plug‑in for SAP on Oracle.

-u <user_id>

Backup utility user.

To attach a user ID to a backup, use this option with the backup operation. When you use this option with inquire or restore operations, only the contents of backups made with an identical ID, or no ID, are listed or restored.

No user ID

-t <type>

Backup type (file, file_online).

Backint requests permission to start each file, and informs SAP when each file is completed. This command enables SAP to switch the tablespace to BEGIN/END BACKUP mode only when the backup of the related files takes place.
