Using the RMAN CLI

CLI-based RMAN backups and restores: an overview

If you want use advanced RMAN features that are not supported through Plug‑in for Oracle’s interface, you can perform CLI-based RMAN backups and restores instead of, or with, the plug-in. During CLI-based RMAN backups and restores, the plug-in provides media management functionality for RMAN.

IMPORTANT: Before using this functionality, Quest recommends that you thoroughly review the Oracle® Database Backup and Recovery Advanced User’s Guide to familiarize yourself with the internals of RMAN.

Before completing any additional or different steps that are outlined in this topic, review the information provided in the previous topics, such as Installing and removing the plug-in and Configuring the plug-in.

Prerequisites for CLI-based backups and restores

The steps described in the following topics must be performed before initiating backups or restores from the command line:

Verifying that the proper RMAN executable is in use (Linux only)

Various installations of Linux® include more than one executable named as rman. Because of this inclusion, you must verify that the correct Oracle® RMAN application is started when you issue the rman command at the prompt. This step can be done by making the path to the Oracle RMAN executable ($ORACLE_HOME/bin) as the first search path in the PATH environmental variable.
