Re: Rac Backup Unable to Duplicate the data on tape

The backup image listing looks odd:

Primary Copy: 0
Kilobytes: 0
Number of Copies: 0
STL_Completed: 3

@mrauf could you perhaps also answer Marianne's questions too please.  Thanks.

Re: Rac Backup Unable to Duplicate the data on tape

Dear 

Yeah i am trying to duplicate to tape through SLP. please find the attachment of SLP Configuration.

Actually few months back our linux media server got crash and we change the media from linux to windows platform, but the weekly backup running properly and duplicating to tape through Weekly SLP. while we are trying to take Yearly Backup for the same policy with same procudure the backup is succesfully completed but it's not able to write the data on Yearly Tape.

is there any thing i need to change in the script on client side (/opt/Symantec/sc/cdb.sh).

Re: Rac Backup Unable to Duplicate the data on tape

We need more info about the actual backup job. I agree with @sdo - the image info does not look right:
Kilobytes: 0
Number of Files: 0
Number of Copies: 0
Number of Fragments: 0

How many child jobs ran in this backup? 
Was the job details in your opening post from a parent or child job?

If there is more than one Oracle policy for the client and the policy name is not hard-coded in the script, then it is possible that the child jobs ran under a different policy name.

Please show us all Oracle backups ran on this date for this client:

bpimagelist -client <name> -pt Oracle -d 01/12/2017 00:00:00 -e 01/12/2017 23:59:59 -U

Re: Rac Backup Unable to Duplicate the data on tape

As far as I see, your image is 0 kb in size. This seems evidenced by the backup taking almost no time to actually complete the backup after the client has connected and the fact that bpimagelist shows your image size to be 0 kb as well :-/

Even though you are writing to an MSDP pool initially, I doubt that no change will have occured in an orracle database between the yearly backup and the last incremental backup (although this is, ofc possible, it is highly unlikely).

Are you sure your backup is valid? Have you tried restoring it? 
I believe that duplication might fail due to the image being 0 kb, maybe you should verify that it is succesfull first?
