Q

Taking a full offline backup

A SearchOracle.com member asks how to take a full offline backup through Oracle 8.0.

One of my clients is using Oracle 8.0.6.1.0 and operating system windows NT 4.0. I have taken logical export (exp80,f= y) of the database, and now I want to take full offline backup through Oracle.

I just want to know what RMAN command will work on Oracle 8.0.6.1.0. We cannot use Oracle Enterprise Manager because we have lost the password for that.

Are there any other tools or ways to take a complete offline backup through Oracle 8.0.6.1.0 ?
In Oracle 8.0, I would recommend shutting down the database with IMMEDIATE or NORMAL. Then use OS utilities to backup the database's datafiles, control files, online redo logs, and parameter files. I was not a fan of RMAN in 8.0 so I would still use user-managed backups for that version.
