Hi ,

This is related to rman backup .
I am using on linux itanium , and want to backup data by using
Unfortunately , i was told that rman could not backup data directly to
a tape device without additional softwares like legato . Is this true?
Because of this , i first backup data to disk than transfer to tape
but i dont have enough disk space for all the data. On my platform ,
legato has not released a version yet , it will be available at the
end of q1 (may be) so i must find a way to backup data. Is it true
that rman cant backup data directly to tape?

Kind Regards,
