Command Options for BRARCHIVE

This section describes the command options for BRARCHIVE. If you start BRBACKUP without command options, the values in the initialization profile init<DBSID>.sap are used. Unless otherwise specified in the initialization profile init<DBSID>, BRARCHIVE starts archiving all the offline redo log files to tape, with a storage capacity of 1200 MB and no file compression.

For more information about features common to both tools, see Common Features of BRBACKUP and BRARCHIVE.

If you use BRARCHIVE with command options, these override the corresponding values in the initialization profile. To use the options, you can specify either the letter indicated or the complete word.
