Oracle 12c is around the corner and due that I have received many questions from fellow DBAs about what was new about Backup and Recovery at 11g I have decided to write a small white paper about it.
Hope you will enjoy reading it as much I enjoyed writing it.

“4> backup section size 5GB datafile 6;”
Here is what happens when “5GB” is used in 184.108.40.206:
2> backup section size 5GB
RMAN-00569: =============== ERROR MESSAGE STACK FOLLOWS ===============
RMAN-00558: error encountered while parsing input commands

RMAN-01008: the bad identifier was: GB
Now, if you tell me it’s:
“4> backup section size 5G datafile 6;”
I won’t have any problems with it.
When copying from other documents, it’s likely a good idea to test if the copy really works as advertised…
Thank you so much for point it out. This was a mistake I made when proofing the document and accepted the word processor spelling advice (In my Backup and Recovery Seminar hands-on lab it is written correctly and it was tested many time in classroom), Once again, thank you for point this out and I will fix it in the document (done) .
