I'm struggling with an issue I'd be grateful if I could have a hint.
I'm trying to back up some of my oracle servers on different media servers, as an offsite and onsite option.
I'm using media servers on different destinations using windows OS , and made storage units to assign to the policies.
I cannot use separate policies with different configurations ( different media servers ) since Netbackup acts funny.
what is the best solution for me to have an offsite backup for a same client.
thank you in advance.
Your requirement looks a lot like this one : https://vox.veritas.com/t5/NetBackup/Oracle-RMAN-job-starts-another-job-copied/m-p/887226
What type of Storage Units do you have in your environment?
If you have supported STUs (tape or Dedupe disk (including OST) ), please read up in Admin Guide I about Storage Lifecycle Policies (SLP).
You should listen to Marianne, and look into SLP.
1. Backup (to disk) - storage selected will determine media server and storage used (strongly recommend disk)
2. SLP automatically does copy to secondary destination - this will allow you to select alternate media server and storage - you can even change retentions.
Do NOT try to make two copies during backup unless you have extra resources, since it will perform as slow as the weakest link.
