    Best book to learn Oracle RMAN

    This book is an invaluable supplement to the Oracle RMAN documentation. It serves two audiences well: if you are just beginning to learn RMAN, or if you need to configure RMAN with a media management tool like Veritas, Legato, etc. Robert includes some great diagrams that really clarify what occurs during different RMAN operations. For the beginner, Robert includes many tips for things that aren't covered well in the Oracle documentation that can really trip up a beginner. I sure wish this book had been published earlier when I was struggling to learn RMAN from just the Oracle documentation. If you are beyond the basics, there is plenty of advanced material to configure RMAN at a large enterprise. If you are still running Oracle8i, Robert describes how to adapt the material back to Oracle8i.
