Scheduling controlfile backup [message #420600] Mon, 31 August 2009 14:22 Go to next message

In my alert log file, it is indicating that control file is being backup every hour then a log switch occurs, but I have no idea how it is doing this...

alter datbase backup controlfile to '/path/to/backup/control.ctl';
Completed: alter database backup .....
Thread 1 advanced to log sequence xxxx

I checked all_scheduler_jobs, nothing in there. I checked rman, it is not configured to backup controlfile (off). No cronjob to do this. How is it doing this?

Thanks in advance

must be done by magic, since you checked all the right places. Correct?

Check cron or any OS scheduler.
