Symantec Netbackup setup for Oracle RMAN RAC

Hi all,

This is first time i am using Symantec Netbackup and asking help in here.

 

I have installed Symantec Netbackup 6 for my Linux (x64) machine ( Master Server )  and also installed in client( Oracle DB RAC ) for testing.

Now , Master server have seen the client and also included in client list of Master server.

 

1) How do i setup RMAN backup for oracle ?

2) Do i need to write a script and put it somewhere? Or while configuring policy Symantec does it all.

I tried searching on forums , but i think i could not find it.

I am having challenge at Oracle side configuration.

 

  • Netbackup 6 

    Why?

    Are you aware that it ran out of support 3 years ago?

    I wanted to share the NBU 6.5 for Oracle manual (http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH52816 ), but all 6.x documentatation has been removed from Symantec/Veritas web sites.

    Please forget about this old, non-supported version and install NBU 7.6 or 7.7.

    Download the manual from here (Look for the Attachments button) : 
    NetBackup for Oracle Administrator's Guide 

    Please take your time to read through the manual (you can for now skip the section about Intelligent Policies as this is not supported for RAC).
    There is a separate chapter for RAC, but read up about policy and script creation in preceding chapters.

    Herewith my view of Oracle backup configuration:

    NBU7.5 oracle RMAN backup integration prerquisites
