Does the Oracle 10gR2 RMAN limit the backup level to 0 and 1 only? I don't think so because I already tested level 0,1 and 2 ( 2 for incremental differential backup, 1 for incremental cumulative backup). They worked. But, someone's experience will help verify that notion.

You tested it on a pre-10g version.
In 10g there are only levels 0 and 1.

Thanks. I was not aware until today that incremental level changed from 9i to 10g. I thought I should expect to see the errors, but 10g RMAN seemed accepting level > 1.

Yes it seems to raise an error only for level > 4.
Maybe it is time for a SR to get a clear explaination from Oracle. Wink
