Critical Issue DB23

Remember this particularly scary bug with RMAN incremental backups?

I did my regular review of key Exadata documents today and I noticed that the aforementioned bug was included in the list of Exadata Critical Issues (MOS 1270094.1).


DB23 – RMAN incremental backups created by certain 11.2 and 12.1 databases could miss blocks if a datafile increases in size while it’s being backed up.


Our Quarterly Full Stack Patch work was recently delayed two months so we could include April 2014’s patch – so it was REALLY important we found out about the bug and implemented the workaround as quickly as we did!
