    The Backup Reports page contains a list of recent backup jobs. You can use the Search section of the page to restrict the backups listed by the status of the job, the start time of the backup, and the type. In the Search sections, specify any filter conditions and click Go.

  3. Click the link in the Backup Name column to display detailed information about any backup.

    The Backup Report page is displayed for the selected backup.

  4. Click the link in the Status column to view a log of RMAN output for the job.


    The control file view V$RMAN_OUTPUT contains the output of recent RMAN jobs. The contents of this view are not preserved when the instance is restarted. Therefore, the output from past RMAN jobs may not be available.
