Dear all,

my rman script (rman_list_database_backup_by_comp_date.txt) is as follow:


SET ECHO ON

LIST BACKUP OF DATABASE COMPLETED BETWEEN "&1" AND "&2";

SET ECHO OFF

EXIT



when I try to pass from dos to rman the, the date format double quotes are not passed. could anyone tell me how to pass in double quotation argument from dos to rman?


rman target / @rman_list_database_backup_by_comp_date.txt 'to_date("20180826 15:00:00","YYYYMMDD HH24:MI:SS")'

RMAN> SET ECHO ON
2>
3> LIST BACKUP OF DATABASE COMPLETED BETWEEN "to_date(20180826 15:00:00,YYYYMMDD
 HH24:MI:SS)" AND "
Enter value for 2:



alternative method

rman target / @rman_list_database_backup_by_comp_date.txt 'to_date(^"20180826 15:00:00^",^"YYYYMMDD HH24:MI:SS^")'

RMAN> SET ECHO ON
2>
3> LIST BACKUP OF DATABASE COMPLETED BETWEEN "to_date(20180826 15:00:00,YYYYMMDD
 HH24:MI:SS)" AND "
Enter value for 2:

thanks a lot

It works for me. For example:
C:\Users\john>
C:\Users\john>copy con rman_list_database_backup_by_comp_date.txt
SET ECHO ON

LIST BACKUP OF DATABASE COMPLETED BETWEEN "&1" AND "&2";

SET ECHO OFF

EXIT
^Z
        1 file(s) copied.

Dear John,

you are right, but you are missing my point here.

in linux I can do the following:

[oracle@ol72-12102-ee ~]$ rman checksyntax @$HOME/dba/scripts/backup/list/list_database_backup/list_database_backup_by_completion_date/rman_list_database_backup_by_completion_date.txt '"to_date('"'"'2018-08-26 15:00:00'"'"','"'"'YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS'"'"')"' '"to_date('"'"'2018-08-27 15:00:00'"'"','"'"'YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS'"'"')"'

to escape a quote within a single quote

https://stackoverflow.com/questions/1250079/how-to-escape-single-quotes-within-single-quoted-strings
Quote:


alias rxvt='urxvt -fg '"'"'#111111'"'"' -bg '"'"'#111111'"'"
# ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^^ ^^^^
# 12345 12345 12345 1234

Explanation of how '"'"' is interpreted as just ':

' End first quotation which uses single quotes.
" Start second quotation, using double-quotes.
' Quoted character.
" End second quotation, using double-quotes.
' Start third quotation, using single quotes.


do you notice that I passed in all the arguments before entering them inside rman?

but the same cannot be said for MS dos environment.

the whole purpose of having a dynamic rman script or sqlplus script is so that the dynamic script can be reused again on any platform. Based on my experience I have harder time doing dos scripting compare to shell scripting.

even the following url

doesn't help me much.

Until you show an error, I can't see a problem. Sorry, man.

Dear all,

the following is the wrong way to invoke date arguments in dos


C:>rman checksyntax @C:\rman_list_database_backup_by_completion_date.txt '"to_date('"'"'2018-08-26
 15:00:00'"'"','"'"'YYYY-MM-DD HH24:MI:SS'"'"')"'

Argument     Value          Description
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
target       quoted-string  connect-string for target database
catalog      quoted-string  connect-string for recovery catalog
nocatalog    none           if specified, then no recovery catalog
cmdfile      quoted-string  name of input command file
log          quoted-string  name of output message log file
trace        quoted-string  name of output debugging message log file
append       none           if specified, log is opened in append mode
debug        optional-args  activate debugging
msgno        none           show RMAN-nnnn prefix for all messages
send         quoted-string  send a command to the media manager
pipe         string         building block for pipe names
timeout      integer        number of seconds to wait for pipe input
checksyntax  none           check the command file for syntax errors
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Both single and double quotes (' or ") are accepted for a quoted-string.
Quotes are not required unless the string contains embedded white-space.

RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00552: syntax error in command line arguments
RMAN-01006: error signaled during parse

Dear Michel,
here's the outcome
C:>(for %i in ("to_date('20180826 15:00
:00','YYYYMMDD HH24:MI:SS')" sysdate) do @echo %~i) | rman target / @C:\rman_list_database_backup_by_completion_date.txt
