Abstract: Backups are not glamorous, but essential. RMAN has many good features, but that also means there are subtleties and plenty to learn. This presentation is not a 30,000 foot overview -- it is a sharing of discoveries and lessons learned. We'll look at implications of infrastructure and feature choices, and sample The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
