This is a wide open question! What dB version? Ur thinking RMAN right?
Will you write an RMAN script controlled by O/S or OEM and go to disk or directly to tape? Or will you customize the sample scripts by Veritas, create a policy that interfaces with RMAN, thereby being controlled by Netbackup? In the later you will need to install and configure Netbackup's Oracle extension.
What I do is control RMAN through a UNIX script cron, go directly to disk and that image is immediately copied to tape via a Netbackup policy. HTH
U can set up a Netbackup policy where Netbackup controls the scheduling and invokes the script to activate rman. This script was customized from a sample script provided by Veritas.
You also can set up a script that is scheduled through a cron. It is a typical unix script, invokes rman and runs the rman commands.
Both methods go directly to tape so you will need the Oracle extension.
Can someone through somelight of their exp like how to config etc.
These are the two ways I have configured rman - one scheduled in a Netbackup policy, the other a cron. Both work fine. Most system Admins prefer method one. The DBA's I have worked with prefer Method 2.
It is easy to configure Veritas.As they have a seperate agent installed on a server where all the backup policies including the tape management is done.On each server where u need to take the bakcup of the DB will be installed a Veritas client.Veritas is supplied with Prebuilt scripts which need to be modified as per ur organisation needs.Before implementing on propduction do it on development.
thanks for your reply guys.But still you havent got my Question.I am not asking in what way we can backup using rman.I am looking for the necessary things which needs to config rman with vertias software.
we have got a HP DLT tape drives & solaris box.Now what all needed to configure with veritas.
Do we need Veritas server to be installed on unix server and config tape drives & then install veritas client as well as veritas for oracle agent to work.
could someone gimme what are needed from veritas point to config.
It's not me that responsible for confguring the NetBackup media and master servers here so can't give to much detail. I get the impression from your last post your Unix box that houses the db will also be the NetBackup server? I understand from our SA that providing Unix can see the tape drives (e.g. iocan -funC tape, or whatever) configuring NetBackup is fairly straight forward e.g. install and do a device discovery.
What I can tell you is that, yes, you need the Oracle agent installed on your database server. And this is true even when the db server is also the NetBackup master server. Installing the agent is easy, you just run a shell script and then run the oracle_link script that is created during the install. The install guide is very helpful. Once this is done you're ready to go assuming that your media server is set up correctly. To create a script suitable for NetBackup to run via the master server take a look at the examples in /usr/openv/netbackup/dbext/samples/oracle.
Your understanding is wrong.
Veritas has different options.In my place we are using Veritas Netbackup Data centre.Which has 2 options one which is installed on a seperate server away from Database server.This server is called as MAster server where all the MML are configured and also including ur policies.The 2nd option is called agent(client) is installed on the Database server where u will have sample scripts which u need to modify.
