Rman Multistreamed backup

Created: 04 Feb 2013 | 1 comment


Oracle 10g

I have taken rman backup with 4 channels.

During the restoration also I have allocated 4 channels.

4 restore jobs got started but only one is reading the data from tape and others are showing "media in use"

As per me, Tape is a sequential device, hence only one job can access the media at a time. Correct me if i am wrong.


The below link is stating how to run restore jobs parallely. Is it applicable for multiplexed RMAN backup or multistreamed RMAN backup.

I tried the workaround given in the link but it failed for multiplexed backup.


Also I want to take the RMAN backup with multistream enabled, but when I select Policy type as ORACLE "ALoow multi stream" option is getting disabled. How to enable multi streamed RMAN backup?

Need solution asap.

Thanks in advance.
