Unanswered: Can RMAN run while doing a shutdown/startup of database?
My boss has requested me to shutdown/startup (bounce) the database once a week on Fridays.
Our RMAN backup runs 4hrs. usually from 8p.m. to 12p.m.
My question: Can I bounce the database while RMAN is running?
My first thought that comes to mind is no, the database has to be up in order for RMAN to function. Am I correct with this assumption?
Thanks for your help,
Your assumption is correct.
Depends on the type of rman backup you are performing database needs to be running or be mounted and not open.
