Which backup type to use?

Good day

I need to schedule daily online backups of my SAP Oracle 10 system. The default backup_type for online backups is "online" in DB13.

However, it appears this type of backup is useless in a disaster situation, where I have lost an entire system. I have not been able to get brtools to recognise this backup as a valid backup to restore a system from.

Apparently, the backup_type should be "online_cons" to get a consistent backup from which I can restore. The question then is, what is the function of backup_type online - i.e. under what circumstances can I use this? and, should I rather change table SDBAC so that all my backup_type for online backups is online_cons?

I need to not only ensure that my data is backed up, but also that I can restore it properly.
