Hi,

I'm not familiar with rman (we are talking about Oracle's Recovery Manager aren't we?), but a quick search tells me that your syntax is not correct. You don't need the run { } syntax (untested, don't have rman present):
Code:
.
.
.
then
  rman target / <<ST
  allocate channel ch0 type sbt_tape;
  backup full database;
  release channel ch0;
ST
.
.
.
Take a look here: An Introduction to Linux Shell Scripting for DBAs

And here for a different approach: RMAN command from script

Hope this helps.

Hi again,

What did you try? My suggestion and the tips/hints/examples in the provided links? And none work?

What are the errors do you encounter and if at all possible could you post the entire script.

One of the most common errors is the indentation of the string at the end of the here documents:
Code:
rman target / <<ST
run {
allocate channel ch0 type sbt_tape;
backup full database;
release channel ch0;
}
ST  ### This must be at the beginning of the line

Heyy!!!!

Actually the problem was not with the script...
Actually I was doing indentation for RMAN script when called in function..
i.e

funbackup ()
{
rman target / <<ST
backup....
....
}

Actually it shud be
funbackup ()
{
rman target / <<ST
backup....
....
}

this was creating problemmm
But i solved it by trial and error..
