Hi all,

My level 0 backup script is:
run {
configure controlfile autobackup off;
backup incremental level 0 tag level_0 
   format '/bkup1/rbackup/%d_full_bkup_%t.bak' (database);
backup current controlfile format '/bkup1/rbackup/%d_%s_%T_CNTRL' tag CONTRLFL;
backup spfile format '/bkup1/rbackup/%d_%s_%T_SPFILE' tag SPFILE;
sql 'alter system archive log current;
backup archivelog all format '/bkup1/rbackup/%d_%s_%T_ARC' tag ARCLOG;
configure controlfile autobackup on;
}


This works fine without any problem. My level 1 incremental merge backup script is:

run {
configure controlfile autobackup off;
recover copy of database with level_0;
backup incremental level 1 for recover of copy with tag level_0 database;
backup current controlfile format '/bkup1/rbackup/%d_%s_%T_CNTRL' tag CONTRLFL;
backup spfile format '/bkup1/rbackup/%d_%s_%T_SPFILE' tag SPFILE;
sql 'alter system archive log current;
backup archivelog all format '/bkup1/rbackup/%d_%s_%T_ARC' tag ARCLOG;
configure controlfile autobackup on;


When I run the level 1 backup i am getting the following error:
MAN> run
2> {
3> backup incremental level 1 for recover of copy with tag level_0 database;
4> recover copy of database with tag level_0;
5> backup current controlfile format '/bkup1/rbackup/%d_%s_%T_CONTROL' tag "CNTRLFL";
6> backup spfile format '/bkup1/rbackup/%d_%s_%T_SPFILE' tag "SPFILE";
7> sql 'alter system switch logfile';
8> backup archivelog all format '/bkup1/rbackup/%d_%s_%T_ARCHIVE' tag "ARCLOG";
9> }

Why the script fails.

This is a known bug. Please check metalink for exact information.
Upgrade to 10.2 or apply latest patchsets.

Thank you for your reply. I don't have access to metalink because i am using Oracle ASFU license. Also it is not possible for upgradation atleast for 6 months.

So, is there any other way to achieve this. Normal incremental level backups work fine. But it will create many files and will occupy lot of space. So I want to avoid that method.

Just apply latest patchsets in the release you are using.
This is a documented Oracle bug which I encountered a while back. I did not investigate much around it as it was already known to be a bug. Well, disk space is cheap. You need to get compromised somewhere. Either add more space, upgrade/patch, reduce the local retention...

agreed. I will go for patch updates. But I don't find the patches in the oracle's site. Should I require a metalink account to download the patches?

Yes, you must have metalink account to download patchset and CPU patches.

for metalink account you have VALID CSI number.

Thank you all for the clarification. As Mr.Mahesh advised, I am going to download the release 2 of Oracle 10g. I will update the status once I get the result.

Manoj.
