I'm having a lot of trouble backing up Rman on a server that has 10g. The problem is the VIP. In netbackup I have oracle1 in my client list and everything is setup proper in the policy. When my DBAs kick off Rman, it never makes it to the backup server.
I've done extensive research (with and without the vendor's support) and basicaly came to the conclusion (based on bpcd logs) that the oracle1 server is doing Rman on the virtual ip instead of the physical.
So, lets say the physical nic for oracle1 is 10.14.35.51. When Rman is started to comes to the netbackup server as 10.14.35.12 (which is the proper vip). However, I don't have a record of this in netbackup. I have all of the proper DNS entries in place, including reverse lookup information. My question is that supposed to me on the VIP? Should I just change netbackup so that instead of having the physical in the client list, should I have the virtual oracle1-vip (this is the virtual hostname)?
I am trying to setup a tape backup also. I really don't have a solution for your problem but I do have a question for you. Can you help me with this issue?
I am trying to create a tape backup with Oracle Grid, RMAN, and Netbackup 6.5. When I attempt to schedule a backup with the console, I get an error message that I must configure the backup settings for the backup. When I run a test in the backup settings it comes back successful. The only entry that I have in my backup settings for tape is the TAPE DRIVE SETTING equal to 1. Prior to this point my Sys Admin installed the Oracle Agent for the Netbackup and the client on the server that I am attempting to backup. I performed the manual link so I feel comfortable that this part of the process is functional. I did attempt to add the following settings to Media Management settings in OEM I keep getting an error on the syntax. parms="ENV=(NB_ORA_POLICY=XXXXX, NB_ORA_SERV=XXXX)"; Can anyone tell me what the settings for Media Management to work and pass the following settings? These two settings are what we are passing in our previous 9i OEM Tape backup jobs.
