Hi All,

I'm new to DOS Batch Files as well as Export utility.

I want to export my full database on daily basis at a fixed time.

1. The generated export file (.dmp) should be like Abc_16-06-2008.dmp

2. The script must delete .dmp files older than three days.
3. The .dmp file must be created in specified drive let us say E:\
4. The newly generated .dmp file must be copied to some another computer in the network.

Any help is appreciated

Thanks & Regards
Manoj

Script in this topic will partially solve your problems. For the rest, do some extra research and code it yourself. If you don't know how to do that, I'd suggest you to visit DOS batch scripting forum to gather additional information as THIS ("copy file over there, delete a file, ...") part of the job isn't related to Oracle.

Hi,

Trying to use the date is going to cause you a problem as the date is formated as 18/06/2008 so if you try an use %date% in the batch file an error is thrown up as it can't create the dmp file.

If the dmp is done same time each day you could just use the following: -
@ECHO OFF
CLS
E:\

:: Delete oldest Backup & Rename previous ones.

DEL *.OL3
RENAME *.OL2 *.OL3
RENAME *.OL1 *.OL2
RENAME *.DMP *.OL1

:: Export DB using the EXP Utiltiy.
C:\Oracle\Ora10\bin\exp system/password file=E:\ABC.dmp owner=owner statistics=none

EXIT


You could even take this futher and write some results to a log/trace file.

echo:							>>backuplog.txt
echo ***************** Backup Started *****************	>>backuplog.txt
echo:							>>backuplog.txt
echo Backup started at %time% on %date%			>>backuplog.txt

echo Export started at 			%time%			>>backuplog.txt

echo Export completed at 			%time%		>>backuplog.txt


Hope that helps?

Regards

Is it? Maybe on your system, but not on mine.
C:\>date
The current date is: sri 18.06.2008
Enter the new date: (dd-mm-yy)

C:\>
Or even
C:\>date
The current date is: sri 18-06-2008
Enter the new date: (dd-mm-yy)

C:\>
So it depends on regional settings which can be adjusted accordingly to your needs.

Hi,

You're right, I just checked the Regional Settings and my short date is formatted to dd/mm/yyyy,so depending on how this is formatted would then allow for %date% to be used in the batch file to form part of the file name.
