RMAN Compression in 9i?

Postby dnunknown » Thu Aug 02, 2012 7:26 pm

Hi Tim,

I have an RMAN catalog on 11.2 and many DB's that are 10g and 11g registered to it

I am now trying to get a backup going on a newly registered DB

I am getting an error when executing;

Code: Select all

RMAN> configure device type disk backup type to compressed backupset parallelism 1;

RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00571: ===========================================================
RMAN-00558: error encountered while parsing input commands
RMAN-01005: syntax error: found "backup": expecting one of: "clear, parallelism"
RMAN-01007: at line 1 column 28 file: standard input

So I am assuming this is not a compatable parameter in 9i, my question is;
Is compression an option in 9i at all?
Is it a different parm?

Backup compression was introduced in 10g.
