What are the steps to export an Oracle database on a SUSE Linux platform in order to take a backup?
Personally, I do not use export for my backups. Consider using RMAN instead. With RMAN you will have many, many more options that will make your backup and recovery life much better. Please read the Oracle Backup & Recovery Guide for your version for a better understanding of RMAN.
