Hello,

I need to know is, is it possible to have a vss snapshot backup on the top of an RMAN backup. Because the link http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B28359_01/...0/rcmbckba.htm says that we can have an incremental level 1 backup on the vss snapshot backup.

So I need to know if interoperability between RMAN and VSS exists or not.

Also is it possible to have mixed backups meaning vss snapshot backups and rman backups. Whenever we take snapshot backup, is it updated in the control file??
These questions are not answered, I googled a lot, even OTN did not help.

Thanks in advance!
Looking forward for these inputs!

Regards,
swaorclser

Hello,

VSS is a Microsoft's Volume Shadow Copy Service. It provides a framework to enable applications to take snapshot based backup. Oracle has its own VSS writer service which co -ordinates with provider and database and VSS framework.
Details could be found at http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B28359_01/win.111/b32010/vss.htm.

Thanks
