recordSpec

Purpose

Use the recordSpec subclause to specify which backups or copies the CHANGE, CROSSCHECK, DELETE, and LIST commands should process.

Most recordSpec options allow you to specify a primary key. Use the output of the LIST command to obtain primary keys.

Syntax

recordSpec::=

Surrounding text describes recordspec.gif.

Semantics

Syntax Element Description
ARCHIVELOG Specifies an archived redo log by either primary key or filename.
BACKUPSET Specifies a backup set by primary key.
BACKUPPIECE Specifies a backup piece by media handle, primary key, or tag name.
PROXY Specifies a proxy copy by media handle, primary key, or tag name.
CONTROLFILECOPY Specifies a control file copy by primary key, filename pattern ('filename'), or TAG tag_name. If you crosscheck a control file copy, then you must specify a filename rather than a primary key.
DATAFILECOPY Specifies a datafile copy by primary key, filename pattern ('filename'), tag (TAG tag_name), or matching string (LIKE 'string_pattern'). Specify ALL to indicate all datafile copies recorded in the RMAN repository.
   NODUPLICATES Specifies that only one copy of the control file or datafile copy specified by the rest of the clause should be the target of the operation, even when there are multiple copies.
