Goal

Which is the best expdp option to back up the Database "FULL" or "SCHEMAS" when backing up the WCS Dababase?

The Installation Guide provides an example of the Oracle expdp command for taking a backup, but is incorrect and generates an error:

 

SQL> host expdp system/***** DIRECTORY=exp_dp_dir DUMPFILE=<filename>.dmp FULL=y SCHEMAS=CSUSER;

"UDE-00010: multiple job modes requested, full and schemas. "

 

This is because it is not allowed to use expdp options both "FULL" and "SCHEMAS".
