Many Thanks Jared. I would also like to post a question to the group regarding RMAN. I'm on 9i test database. Lets say I have set maxpiecesize to be 1G and maxsetsize to 2500M (i.e) 2.5G . I'm trying to backup 3 datafiles of size 2G each.

run {
allocate channel c1 type disk;
backup datafile 1,2,3 channel c1 tag=bk1; }

What would happen in this scenario? First and foremost thing is that I believe I would be able to set maxpiecesize and maxsetsize to the values specified above. If the values are ok, I belive that RMAN should return with an error because maxsetsize is very less and it should atleast be set to 6G. Please clarify........Thanks in advance......
