Rman.rc_backup_set Backup_type Field Acting Differently From To Databases

(Doc ID 2219155.1)

Last updated on JUNE 11, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Database - Enterprise Edition - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


As per Documentation link


In RC_BACKUP_SET_DETAILS the Backup_type has the following values set :-

BACKUP_TYPE: The type of the backup:

D (full backup or level 0 incremental),
I (incremental level 1),
L (archived redo log).

This works as expected in 11gr2 and Below version.

However in 12c database  When we take a Level 0 backup the backup type is Shown as I and not D.
