I finished reading this book about six months ago and delayed writing a review of the book until I had a chance to contrast the contents of the book with the Oracle 10g R2 RMAN documentation and other books on the same subject. I bought the book after reading recommendations by several individuals, and thought that this book was the perfect opportunity to refresh by memory of the Oracle 8i documentation of RMAN and bring me up to speed with the command line interface of RMAN in Oracle 10g R2. The Enterprise Manager Database Control in Oracle 10g R2 almost over simplifies the process of setting up backups, but there is always that nagging question... what if the GUI interface is down, underscoring why it is important to be familiar and comfortable with the command line interface when restore and recovery are needed. I was also preparing to give a presentation related to Oracle administration and performance tuning. This book did not meet the criteria for inclusion in the recommended resources for the presentation, and for that matter neither did any other RMAN book, with the possible exception of the Oracle documentation.

While the book excels at explaining what makes RMAN tick, I personally found that the book is actually a bit difficult to use when trying to implement a change to the Oracle configuration. The section on database cloning, for instance, is more difficult to follow than Oracle's own "Backup and Recovery Advanced User's Guide" documentation on the same topic. Maybe it is just me (and one or two other people). Flipping between several pages (seemed like a hundred or more) is not confidence inspiring had this been a real emergency.

I then decided to try a couple recovery scenarios. I set up an Oracle 10.2.0.

Great book for the price. One of the better Oracle books available on using RMAN as your backup solution.. If you are still on 10g and are using RMAN this is the book to purchase. I am going to purchase the newer 11g version and hope it is as good as this 10g book.

This book does a pretty good job of explaining RMAN features and offers some good ideas on how to make RMAN part of your day to day Oracle tool set. Some( all?) of the examples use 10gR2 syntax which will not work with 10gR1, so pay attention! Oracle is trying very hard to make RMAN be everything experienced and novice DBAs need from a comprehensive backup/recovery tool, as a result a book such as this that can simplify and clarify is money well spent.

We had to install and configure Oracle10g 4 node RAC with ASM+FLASHBACK and implement backup/recovery procedures using RMAN and Veritas Netbackup. This book covers everything I need to know in depth.

Backup and Recovery is one of the most critical tasks that a DBA has to perform. Sadly, it is also one of the most misunderstood. RMAN should be the tool of choice for backup and recovery for Oracle databases. There is so much that can be done with RMAN.

What Robert and Matthew do is break it down piece by piece. There is a great intro and they build on that in subsequent chapters. If you want to link RMAN directly with your backup software (i.e. Veritas, EMC, Legato, etc..) then the authors show you how. I used the Veritas piece to link RMAN in and it worked flawlessly. They go over the latest features including block changing files (for faster incremental backups), merging level 1 and level 0 backups (for faster recoveries without the overhead of backing up the whole database), and even cover what the flash recovery area is and how to use it. There is so much great material packed in this book. Yeah, you can try and read Oracle's docs, but rather than just show you how to do it, the authors also teach you why to do it.

You can read this book chronologically or use it as a reference. The authors writing style make this book a great joy to read. They also include a lot of great examples in case you like to learn by seeing.

I would highly recommend this book if you are an Oracle DBA, whether you use RMAN or not. Afterall, RMAN is what you should be using :).
