I have an Oracle database 11gr2 and I have installed Oracle Grid on Oracle Linux 5.9. I have two disk groups.

/etc/init.d/oracleasm listdisks :



The first disk group is mounted on /u01 and the second is mounted on /flash_recovery_area.

The value of fra parameters are:

db_recovery_file_dest = /+flash_recovery_area

db_recovery_file_dest_size = 30G

When I want to connect to rman and get backup from current database, I can but I can not find anything in /flash_recovery_area destination.

Can any one help me?

Oracle will write all the datafiles and such to your DATA directory. You actually have to create a backup in the +flash_recovery_area you have created. What sort of backup are you trying to create?

What command are you using to create your backup?

For instance, if you wanted to execute a Level 0 IMAGE COPY, you could issue the following command:

backup incremental level 0 as copy database tag 'L0_COPY';
