Life became very easy after Oracleâ€™s invention of OEM Grid Control. That is what Oracle promised us when they invented it. A couple of months ago one of my colleagues asked me to schedule backup jobs. In the past I made very nice OS scripts in order to make a backup. But now with OEM Grid Control being available for quite some time, I thought letâ€™s try making backups using OEM Grid Control.
And yes it works fine. Grid Control makes quite interesting RMAN scripts. You can schedule these RMAN scripts. At one glimpse you can see all your backup jobs and the status of these backup jobs in the job activity list. Also you can see if these backup jobs have successfully run. For script kiddies OEM Grid Control is bad news, because it makes scripts for you. But if you like to be wizard kiddy, you feel to be in heaven.
