Hi famy,

Nice Post yaar, But you have mentioned the word "offline"

The major defferenc is there between offline and "begin backup" mode.

Offline: If you put tablespace in offline you can't do any transaction on that perticular tablespace.
Begin backup: You can do transaction on the objects pertaining to this tablespace. only thing is the datafle header will be in freeze state. Once you take out of the backup mode your datafile header will be updated with new SCN no's.

Any way's thanks for the blog and the effort you are putting in.
