if you want a consistent online backup, you have to use special
backuptypes. like online_consistent in sapdba.
it does a logswitch before the start of the backup and then appends the
offline redologs written while the backup was running to the tape.

sapdba is the frontend to brbackup and other tools. i think the best way
is to use it instead of the tools directly, unless you wan´t scripting.
sapdba is configured by ora<SID>.sap, including remote tape options. its
much easier that way then to put it all together on the commandline.
and yes, i would use the br tools on a r/3.
read the sap note (search for brbackup). read the r/3 administration
made easy guides, they are pretty good. have fun ;-)
