Creating an Oracle Image Copy

Create an image copy of the Oracle datafile for merged incremental backups. The image copy is not RMAN-specific, so you can use image copies in both RMAN and non-RMAN restore and recovery operations.

When you create an image copy, a server session is used to create the copy, record the image in the RMAN repository and validate the copied data blocks.

Procedure

  1. Create the image copy. On the RMAN command line, type the following command:

    RMAN> BACKUP AS COPY datafile

  2. Configure the default backup type for disk or image copy. On the RMAN command line, type the following command:

    RMAN> Configure device type disk backup type to copy;
