# Interesting idea of using ASM only for the "data" files and a cooked file system for the FRA...

Like I said we do NOT use FRA at all. We do use rman for a disk based backup ( which does get copied to tape ). We do run in archivelog mode and the archive logs are in a cooked file system.

What are your recovery steps exactly if "all" of your ASM based storage is messed up?

... I just realised that we first do a backup on disk and then the backup software writes the backup files from disk to tape. That would probably be not possible with ASM as file system, anyway.

Well sure you could get it done one of several possible ways ... but I don't want to live like that. Received on Mon Apr 11 2011 - 20:30:32 CDT
