You're not using RMAN script

You're not using RMAN script for Oracle backups ?

If you set up an RMAN backup

If you set up an RMAN backup policy, you can easily call that from a script, we use this to check for archive logs and back them up from the OS via script.

we r using RMAN scripts to take oracle backup..Can we take normal backup using script?

What exactly do you mean

by "normal?"

There are 2 ways to take a backup with Oracle :

1.  Using RMAN to make a flat file dump of your database, then use a standard backup policy through NetBackup to back up the dump location as a flat file.  

2.  Create a policy type of "Oracle" in NetBackup which will take a hot backup of your database using the RMAN script you created.

Between those two, I'm not sure which one you would consider "normal."
