Re: after runing my rman backup script

hi,

The backup piece RMAN is trying to create is exceeding the current 2GB limit.

You can overcome this limitation by either allowing the file system to accept larger files:
E.g.

# umount /filesystem
#/usr/sbin/fsadm -F vxfs -o largefiles /dev/vg00/rlvol9
# mount /filesystem


OR
You can also try to modify your script as follows:

rman target / nocatalog <run {
allocate channel c1 type disk format '/u02/oradata/backup/df_%d_%U_%p_%c'.bak' ;
allocate channel c2 type disk format '/u03/oradata/backup/df_%d_%U_%p_%c'.baK' ;

set limit channel c1 kbytes=750000;
set limit channel c2 kbytes=750000;
backup database ;
backup
current controlfile
tag = cf1
format '/u03/oradata/backup/cf_%u.%p';
}
exit
EOF

Please check and revert back.


hope this helps!

regards

Re: after runing my rman backup script

Quite simply, your backup file exceeded 2 GB on a filesystem not enabled for large files.

If you have onlineJFS the above instructions work.

11.00 instructions:

backup the target filesystem.

umount the fs.

newfs -F vxfs -o largefiles

in /etc/fstab

change the nolargefiles parameter for the fs to largefiles.

mount /fs

leave out the fstab changes in 11.11(11i).

Re: after runing my rman backup script

Hi,
and the other error is this:

'/u02/oradata/backup/df_%d_%U_%p_%c'.bak' ;
^^^^

there is an even number of --'-- that is causing the DOT error.
