A Database Administrator (DBA) can initiate a backup or restore operation for Oracle from the RMAN console. Example scripts for backup and restore operations that you can run from the RMAN console are installed to the following location:
\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\scripts\Oracle
Review the following notes before initiating backup jobs for Oracle from the RMAN console:
The SKIP INACCESSIBLE option is available in RMAN to skip corrupt data and log files. Jobs that include this option may complete successfully, but it is likely that if this data is restored, the database will be in an inoperable state. The SKIP INACCESSIBLE option is not available for media server operations. If a backup job encounters corrupt data or log files, the job fails. Symantec recommends that you do not use this option.
