I have a single machine having OS oracle EL4 and Oracle 9i software.
I have three database servers running same OS and DBMS software.

I want to backup(Disk based)using RMAN for all my target databases on single machine.

Is it possible. If yes then how can I do that?

Regards
Munir

Yes it is possible.
Just execute the rman commands for each database successively. What is your problem in that?

Michel

Dear When I execute rman backup command it save the backup files on the database server where the database running.
I want to save backup files on my centeral machine from where I am running rman commands.
The scenario is that I have Six servers running Oracle database servers and a machine haveing a lot of disks and Tape drive. I want to backup using rman on this single machine (disk base).

So proceed to do so.

Because you locally logon but you can remotely logon and backup from anywhere.

Please tell me how can I do that.

1- DB server (hostname = DB1) Linux
2- DB server (hostname = DB2) Linux
3- DB server (hostname = DB3) Linux

4- Backup server (hostname = BackupDB) Linux

I want to save backup of all 1,2,3 database servers on my backup server using RMAN. But RMAN store backup set on target database server.

Please consider that local & remote are 100% relative & none of us are standing behind you.

We do not share your perspective or point of view.

What is remote for you can be local for others.
Please do not use relative terms; only absolute names.

Assume my server machines are in some Room.
I have a PC which have large storage and Tape drive.
I have installed oracle 9i software in my PC. I have RMAN client and tnsnames configured to connect my server machines.
Using my PC,s RMAN client I want to backup the server machines on my local PC.

But RMAN>backup database; behavior is that it store the backup files/piece on server machine NOT ON MY LOCAL PC.

I want to know how can I do that when I connect to target db and run backup command It store backup files on my PC NOT on SERVER MACHINE.

>>run backup command It store backup files on my PC NOT on SERVER MACHINE.
You must make the the local filesystem ( say, /backup ) to be available and visible to the database server (nfs mount) and let it be used as destination for rman backupsets.
