Re: RMAN Backup

Yes you can.

A sample script is already on the client at

/usr/openv/netbackup/ext/db_ext/oracle/samples/rman

And the file you need

hot_database_backup.sh

 

Cumulative and differential schedules set NB_ORA_CINC and  NB_ORA_INCR respectively to 1. NB_ORA_FULL is set to 1 by the full backup schedule.

All can be in one policy pointing to the same script.

Best to config Intelligent Policies for Oracle. This will allow you to config Full and Incr backups in the same policy.

Re: RMAN Backup

Thanks Marianne, but the customer needs backup through script only not through OIP.

Re: RMAN Backup

Since Oracle RMAN polices have two schedule - Parent and Child, be careful if you need multiple retentions. I know I tried setting the child to make multiple copies once and it reacted badly.

Good luck!
