I just re-read this and realized you are talking about using RMAN to backup the *backup* to this special ASM DG. Let me know if I've got that right! Don. On 2/26/07, Don Seiler <don@xxxxxxxxx> wrote:

I'll show this to my SA and see how he likes it. Sounds a lot easier on the system than rsyncing all the data (especially after Sunday's level 0). The one issue would be that our restores and duplications currently take almost 9 hours (as do level 0 backups). So when I do a duplication to dev, I do this overnight, which is normally when the backups would run. To stick with that current process, I'd need the disk available to both.
