This appendix is a quick reference to the RMAN command set. For each command, you will find a quick description of the command, an associated syntax diagram, a chapter reference, and some examples on the use of that command. This reference also contains a list of the RMAN reserved words. We hope that you find this reference very useful. We expect that it will become very dog-eared from heavy use and will be the main reason you do not loan this book out to anyone!
The following table provides a list of reserved words, which you should avoid using when performing RMAN operations.
