    Question Unanswered: Doubt in incremental backup

    Hi All,

    I have confused when i take incremental backup....To take an incremetal backup before we need to take full backup (online). Then, I have changed the db cfg for TRACKMOD=on. Then, I tried to take incremental but it wont allowed me to take. Error shown. Then, i have taken tablespaces backup. Again, its not worked. So, I have taken again full backup (online). Now, I took incremental backup.... What is the reason for that?

    For setting up incremental backup, you have to enable trackmod on and then take a full backup, later the incremental/delta backups will work. The full backup should be taken after turning the parameter trackmod on.

    what a wonderful invention the doc is
    trackmod - Track modified pages enable configuration parameter
    according the doc....
    After setting this parameter to "Yes", you must take a full database backup in orde.....
