Hello Mohammad,

I'm using the procedure provided by oracle (user managed backup) by selecting start->programs->Oracle 10g XE->Backup database.

I already checked the alert log file but there is no error message in it.

My database is in archive log mode.

Thank you for your help.

Heraldo.

Run,

Select log_mode from v$database;

And see your current log mode. If you are running in noarchive mode you cant perform online backup.

I think environmental variable missing. Reinstall of oracle may solve the problem.

the application log shows

The description for Event ID ( 34 ) in Source ( Oracle.xe ) cannot be found. The local computer may not have the necessary registry information or message DLL files to display messages from a remote computer. You may be able to use the /AUXSOURCE= flag to retrieve this description; see Help and Support for details. The following information is part of the event: ACTION : 'CONNECT' DATABASE USER: 'sys' PRIVILEGE : SYSDBA CLIENT USER: WCI\rex CLIENT TERMINAL: SHEFFILE STATUS: 0 .

You must run backup with user with which you have installed OracleXE!
Or should be memeber of ORA_DBA group (About this I'm not sure)

Hi there,

I had the same error message when I tried to run the Oracle 10g XE Edition's backup from the Windows Start Menu, i.e.

==================== ERROR =============================
Backup of the database failed.
Unknown log mode : SP2-0640:.
Log file is at SP2-0640:.
==================== ERROR =============================

It turned out I got this because I'd not started up the database. Ensure your XE database has been started up before you run the backup from the Windows Start Menu. Embarassed

Cheers.

James

Start oracle server using Windows- Start -> Program files -> Oracle 10g -> Start database.

Even if services are started.

Good information.

Rather than log out of my user account and back in as the administrator account used to instal Oracle XE I did the following:

Opened Start -> Programs -> Oracle Database 10g Express Edition and then right clicked Backup Database. Select Properties from the context menu. In the Backup Database Properties dialog box under Shortcut tab prepend the target with "runas /user:<login> " without the quotes where <login> is the Windows user that installed Oracle.

Now when you click Backup Database you will get a prompt for the password for <login> and the database will backup normally.
