Hi

I have to automate my backup (Dumps not physical).
What is the simplest yet reliable way to implement it i.e. OS scripts, OS scheduler or Oracle Scheduler. And how can I accomplish it?

Wishes

Use OS script and scheduler, just my opinion but others might prefer use Oracle scheduler.

Writing it on the fly:
set ORACLE_HOME=...
set ORACLE
set PATH=%ORACLE_HOME%\BIN;%PATH%
exp mydba/mypsw file=mydb.dmp log=mydb.log full=y

set ORACLE


I think Michel meant ORACLE_SID. This will be needed if you don't have ORACLE_SID set in the registry.

Yes, I was interrupted when writing and didn't see I didn't finish the line before continuing on the next one!
It was indeed set ORACLE_SID.

By default, ORACLE_SID is not set in registry and in my opinion it is always a good idea to explicitly set it in batch script to prevent from an unwanted change in registry.

Actually, for the first (default) database installed on Windows the ORACLE_SID gets set in the Windows registry.

Use date/time
For instance:
P:\>for /F "tokens=1-3 delims=/ " %A in ('date/t') do set MYDATE=%C%B%A

P:\>set MYDATE=080521

P:\>for /F "tokens=1-2 delims=: " %D in ('time/t') do set MYTIME=%D%E

P:\>set MYTIME=0741

P:\>set MYFILE=MYFILE_%MYDATE%_%MYTIME%

P:\>echo %MYFILE%
MYFILE_080521_0741

Michel

Just another option:
C:\>set dt=%date:/=%%time: =0%

C:\>echo %dt:~4,8%_%dt:~12,2%%dt:~15,2%
05212008_1125

I didn't know about %date and %time variables.

@OP,
Take care it depends on your territory, the (about) same thing in France is:
C:\>set dt=%date:/=%%time::=%

C:\>echo %dt:~0,8%_%dt:~8,4%
21052008_1739
