RMAN Backup Shell Script for Oracle

This hassle free RMAN backup Shell script helps the DBA to take an on-demand self-contained & consistent RMAN backup for Oracle database resides on Linux OS. It will help to easily specify the number of channels, select backup options (Compression/Encryption) and then it will run in the background in nohup mode.

How it works:

This script should run by the Oracle installation owner (e.g. oracle) it will do the following:
 - Will ask you to select the database number you want to backup from the list (in case multiple databases found).
 - Then it will ask for the backup location, and the number of channels to be allocated during the backup.
 - Then you will be asked to use special features such as Compression and Encryption for the backup.
 - Finally, RMAN script will be created and will run automatically in the background in nohup mode, and thus no need to bother about your session disconnect during the backup operation.
