hi all,

is there any way I can add the DBID to my rman backup name?
I've already tried %F/%f as seen in the man page. but this option remains ignored.

It works for the rman backup of the controlfile. but no change to get this running proper for the datafiles.

any ideas? Confused

%F is meant only for controlfiles.
You can tag the backup, if that helps but cannot change the format.

I see...

I've added this to a rman script now.
dbid=$(echo -e "select dbid from v\$database;" | sqlplus / as sysdba 2>/dev/null | grep [0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9] | sed -e 's/ //g')
configure channel device type disk format '$bakdir/$ORACLE_SID-$dbid-ora-df%t_s%s_s%p';

works for me.

thx!

>works for me.
For some definition of "works".

How successful was DB restore using this backup?

do you think there might be a problem with such definition?
I haven't done a restore yet, but rman, at least, recognizes the backups correct.
I see no reason why restoring shouldn't work proper...?
