To work with RMAN, you must configure several things, such as the default backup type (disk or tape), the number of channels, and the degree of parallelism. For simple backup tasks, you probably can get by with RMAN’s default configuration settings. However, for complex jobs involving sophisticated backup strategies, you need to customize one or more of RMAN’s configuration settings.
