Is he? When? And where? All that comes from him is anger and arrogant remarks.

I am willing to accept that. As of right now, I'm still trying to find the advantage in using RMAN compared to putting the tablespaces in BACKUP mode and backing everthing up. I explained the problem I see with RMAN.

Now, I know that I can control Symantec/Veritas NetBackup from RMAN. It's not setup yet, but that can be changed. As soon as I changed that, I really DO see quite an advantage in RMAN, as RMAN would then be able to fetch the data from tape and use it right away. At least that's my understanding.

Once more: Why are you saying, that I'm not willing to accept the current best practice (ie. using RMAN, I suppose), when I'm trying hard to "convince" myself to use RMAN? I don't understand this.
