To run a local or global RMAN script stored in the recovery catalog.

"CREATE SCRIPT" and Oracle Database Backup and Recovery Advanced User's Guide for more details about stored scripts

Restrictions and Usage Notes

  • Use EXECUTE SCRIPT only within the braces of a RUN command.

  • RMAN must be connected to the catalog with the CATALOG command-line option or the CONNECT CATALOG command, and the catalog must be open.

  • For a local script, RMAN must be connected to the target database for which the local script is created.

  • When you run an EXECUTE SCRIPT command within a RUN block, RMAN places the contents of the script in the context of that RUN block. For this reason, you should not allocate a channel within the RUN block if you also allocate it in the script.

Keywords and Parameters

Syntax Element Description
GLOBAL Specifies the execution of a global stored script instead of a local one.
'script_name' The name of the stored script to execute.

If no local stored script defined for the current target database is found with the name specified, RMAN searches for a global script by the same name and executes it if one is found.

Executing a Script: Example This example runs a stored script called backup_whole_10:
