Backup strategy on archivelog database
At the present time, we use Netbackup 3.4 (install on win2000 server) to backup our 8i databases on Solaris 5.8.
Netbackup first stop the databases, and then copy to tape the database's files, and finally, restart the databases.
Now, we want to backup a new database in archivelog mode.
Do you know if Netbackup is able to manage the backup of archivelog files ?
Do we have to create shell scripts to automatically copy archivelog files to tape and then flush the directory where they are stored ?
Do you know where we can found shell scripts to survey the directory where the archivelog are stored, to avoid "file system full" causing instance hanging ?
I have no experience at all about the subject ...
Thanks a lot in advance.
