When you say creating a job using a script I assume you have an issue with using the Job Library and "Create Like" - is there a rason why?

I expect using a script you could update the Grid repository directly but I'm fairly sure you would be unsupported if you did. Having said that our security policy here requires all passwords to be changed every 90 days so I have written a script that updates the preferred credentials directly when this happens - changing them for over 50 databases is not something I want to do manually.

Cheers,

Ian

I am looking at how to consolidate various RMAN backups to be scheduled and managed through Grid. Currently we have a mixture of Grid, crontab and 3rd party schedules running RMAN jobs.

I am guessing that there must be a method of creating a grid job by using a script containing all the credentials, database name, backup type etc but I don’t think I have ever come across any information around this.

Has anybody got any suggestions or even better an example.

Here’s hoping

John
