PRINT SCRIPT

Purpose

Use the PRINT SCRIPT command to print a local or global stored script to standard output or to a file.

Prerequisites

Execute PRINT SCRIPT only at the RMAN prompt. RMAN must be connected to a target database and a recovery catalog. The recovery catalog database must be open.

If the specified script is a local script, then RMAN must be connected to the target database that it was connected to when you created or replaced the script.

Usage Notes

If GLOBAL is not specified, then RMAN looks for a local or global script script_name to print. If a local script is found, then it is printed. If no local script is found, but a global script script_name is found, then the global script is printed.

Semantics

Syntax Element Description
GLOBAL Identifies the script as global.

If GLOBAL is specified, then a global script with the specified name must exist in the recovery catalog. Otherwise, RMAN returns error RMAN-06004.

See Also: "Usage Notes" for an explanation of the difference between global and local scripts

script_name Specifies the name of the script to print. Quotes must be used around the script name when the name contains either spaces or reserved words.
   TO FILE 'filename' Sends output to the specified file instead of standard output.

Examples

Example 2-111 Printing a Script to a File

RMAN> PRINT GLOBAL SCRIPT global_backup_db TO FILE "/tmp/global_backup_db.rman";

Example 2-112 Printing a Script to the Screen

      INCREMENTAL LEVEL 0 TAG backup_whole
      FORMAT "/disk2/backup/%U"
      DATABASE PLUS ARCHIVELOG;
}
