Thanks Andrew. triiger is one option but it does not cover all the maintenance part. Is there any way that we can run script dring RAc startup ? These dbs are in archivelog and hot backups are run. we do cold backups at some specified windows.

You might be able to do something with a database trigger (on startup of database).  Though if you are backing them up, I dont see why you dont put them in archivelog mode and run hot backups. On Tue, Nov 22, 2011 at 1:10 PM, kapil vaish <> wrote:
