Are you using Oracle RMAN features in Toad?

Hi everyone. I’d like to get your feedback on whether you use the Oracle RMAN features in Toad.

Specifically do you:

  1. use the RMAN scripting templates in Toad and
  2. use the Editor to write your own RMAN scripts (Toad provides syntax highlighting for RMAN scripts)
    Thanks in advance for any feedback you can provide.


Evening John,

I have used the RMAN scripting templates in the past, but not recently. On different contracts, I’ve mostly had to deal with either pre-existing scripts, or, various backup manager systems such as Simpana Commvault which do the RMAN stuff in the background.

On many clients side, not.

Most of them have dedicated solutions (Commvault, Veritas, Legato…) and use them as interface for all RMAN operations.

Frankly cannot remember when I saw it in use. Not nice to say, but it is honest, and this is what you want.


Thanks for you feedback Damir.
