Enabling an online database for automated AI file management
Use the following procedure to enable an online database for automated AI file management:
1. Verify that your database has after-imaging areas and after-imaging is enabled. If not enabled, see Enabling after-imaging online for instructions.
2. Create directories on disks with sufficient space to archive your AI extents.
3. Enable your database for AI file management with an online backup. The backup provides the baseline for rolling forward extents.
Use the following syntax, where your database is named mydb:
probkup online mydb /usr4/backups/mydb.bck enableaiarchiver -aiarcdir
           /usr1/aiarchives/mydb/,/usr2/aiarchives/mydb/
          -aiarcinterval 120
