Hi,

I am running Oracle10g in WindowsNT server.

My scenario:
I am taking incremental level 0 database once in a month and taking level 1 database backup once in a week and level 2 database backup daily.

But my doubt is, Does 10g supports level 2 backups.

I am taking level 2 database backups daily it is sucessfull. Will it be usefull in case of any recovery?

TIA

>Will it be useful in case of any recovery?
What does your recovery procedure say to do?
What results have you obtained from doing a test recovery using documented recovery procedures?

Taking "backups" without ever testing recovery,
is like going sailing with a life raft that has NEVER been inflated to demonstrate it will actually float.

What would happen if you were told by someone here that your backups are A-OK, but next week your server melts down & you can not RECOVER?
Who takes the blame, you or the person who gave you incorrect advice?

Who falls on the sword when the DB can NOT be recovered?
The choice is yours.

ANY & every successful recovery is a GOOD learning experience as you know what works.
Every unsuccessful recovery is a GOOD learning experience as you know what does not work.
Just hope what is unsuccessful recovery does not happen for real in a recovery of a Production DB
