Hi All,

I am taking the backups of production databases on daily basis. Today the backup script got failed for some unknown reasons, though there is enough space at the /backup filesystem and also the DB instance is up and running.
There is no such log file created by the script through which I can get the error details.
Is there is any views from where I can get the error details for such failed backups?

Please help.

Regards-
Pokhraj Das

Any scheduled backup should have a log. Atleast from the cronjob.
The "unknown" reasons should have some pointers in the log.
It also depends on how you did the backup.
Start with alert<sid>.log

Hi,

I have checked from the alert.log file. No ORA- or RMAN- error found at the alert.log file.
Any views from where I can get the RMAN error?

So you are using RMAN.
RMAN writes the to standard out unless you specify a logfile.
No run-time errors are logged into dictionary.
You can get the details of job,longops etc. But not errors.

Hi,

Thanks for your suggestion. Also, I am not able to check the RC_* tables from sql prompt.
Please suggest from where I can check those tables, as I am connecting as "/ as sysdba" privilege.

Pokhraj

What does mean "you are unable"?
Your eyes are closed? Your PC is OFF? There is no network? Database is down? Power is OFF? Building is burning?

Those are in catalog.
Are you connecting to catalog as owner?

Check V$RMAN_BACKUP_JOB_DETAILS and/or V$RMAN_OUTPUT.

Hi,

I am facing with a new problem.
I have 300 production instance currently running. Through RMAN I am taking the full backup at the weekend and incr backup on weekdays.
I am not able to view the details of backups whether it is successfull or failed.

I queried V$RMAN_STATUS that showing the STATUS "COMPLETED" OR "FAILED". But not sure for which instance the backup is "COMPLETED" or "FAILED".


Is there is any way to get the details for the same?

Note: I have connected with sys.I am not using OEM GRID control.

That view is specific to the database you are connecting to. If you want a centralized place to obtain that information for all 300 databases, then you'll have to create a recovery catalog.

Next time create a new thread instead of replying to an older thread.
