Yes, I've been working on Oracle 10g but I think that Flashback Technology
couldn't be a good solution for me. I based my opition on UNDO limitations.
The mechanism which I want to develop shuold allow to rollback to e.g. 1 month (or more)
in the past. I read that Flashback Technology is better solution for a "short-distance". Do you agree?

About RMAN, I think I didn't TSPITR because I do not have an auxiliary instance
which is mandatory in TSPITR architecture. So I do the following:

First: RMAN> run {

3> backup tablespace USERS_CUSTOM format '/home/oracle/rman_002.bus'
