    Cool Unanswered: Backing Up Database

    Guys,

    we have evolvd a database that has over 20,000 entries. I would like to know how we would be able to back up all the data in terms of entries and other data such as reports and information passed on. The forms folder and the tables creation data is backed up, but how do i back up the entries in the database.

    Thanks

    Have you tried "export". It's in the "Backup and Recovery" books.

    Example:

    1. Create file exp.par

    userid=system/<password>
    file=c:\temp\exp.dmp
    log=c:\temp\exp.log
    owner=<oracle user name>
    compress=n
    buffer=100000
    feedback=100


    2. Export the "oracle user" data & objects

    c:\> set nls_lang=american_america.<character set>
    c:\> set oracle_sid=<SID>

    c:\> exp parfile=exp.par


    3. Save the c:\temp\exp.dmp and exp.log files as your logical backup

    Shutdown the database & do an OS "level 0" backup;
    backup the whole disk to different media.
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.
    Good judgement comes from experience. Experience comes from bad judgement.
