Course Description

RMAN uses a recovery catalog to store metadata about Oracle databases, and allows stored scripts to be used to run sequences of RMAN commands stored in the catalog. When administering an Oracle Database, it is important to be familiar with what a backup is, how the process of creating a backup is completed, and the various types of backups available. This knowledge allows you to make an informed decision on the best way to maintain the integrity of your data and the availability of your database. This course discusses how to create and manage the recovery catalog. It also explains how to configure backup specifications, including methods of optimizing a backup and how to use RMAN to create backups. This course is one of a series in the Skillsoft learning path that covers the objectives for the Oracle Database 11g: Administration II (1Z0-053) exam.
