Hello ALL,

I tried to use the following command in RMAN environment:
RMAN> backup database format 'c:\cm3b\rman\myrmanbkp_%F';

RMAN says that F specifier is not valid.
I want a specifier that apply DBID in the file name.
What is the file format specifiers that show DBID?

I know these below: (none show DBID)
%t ==> 4-byte time stamp
%s ==> backup set number
%p ==> backup piece number

I don't know:
What does %U stand for? (its meaning)

Where can I find a reference about rman file name specifiers? (just a URL/link)

Thanks,

mson77

%I will provide DBID and %U specifies a system-generated unique name.

Check formatSpec for details.

Hello ebrian,

THANK YOU!
Your answer solved my problem.
But... any reason to fail the command below using specifier %F?
RMAN> backup database format 'c:\cm3b\rman\myrmanbkp_%F';

Regards,

I believe the %F is for CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP formatting only, however the documentation doesn't clearly explain that.

THANK YOU EBRIAN!
I agree that documentation does not clearly explain it.
Your opinion consolidates the mine.

'%F', it can only be used in mode 'automatically backs up the current controlfile'.
eg:
CONFIGURE CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP FORMAT FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO 'E:\ORACLE\BACKUP\%F';

I can't see the' reason why you register to answer a question that already been answered 3 years ago.

Anyway I take the opportunity to tell you to avoid using bold red color font but you can use code tags to post code.
Please read OraFAQ Forum Guide, especially "How to format your post?" section.
Make sure that lines of code do not exceed 80 characters when you format.
Indent the code, use code tags and align the columns in result.
Use the "Preview Message" button to verify.

Some people answer a question when the questioner had died 100 years
I think, it never be late to give a correct answer to a old question.

Yes, but this one was already answered, so my reply.
There are many questions without answer, why don't you pick one of them?
