System Recovery 2011 for oracle 10g Server..

Friends;

One of our customer requested to implement SSR 2011 as an image backup for application & database servers.

our POC was succesfull for some test application, Database servers & would like to know about database server which has oracle 10g.reference to SSR's SCL, the oracle 10g supports in Crash consistent backup only, since versions prior to 11g are not VSS compliant.

I would like to know more on Crash consistent backups for oracle 10g version & best Practice for the image backups?

Our customer agreed that they will use image incase of server hardware failure & then  restore the Database from regular backups.

Best Regards;

So do I get it right that you

So do I get it right that you don't use SSR for the Oracle backups because 10g is not VSS aware ?

If this is right:

You'd run a normal server backup NOT stopping the Oracle DB using a pre backup command. This means that the server is not in conistent state until you restore the database from the regular backup.

However if you want conistent backups from this 10g thing you'd need to stop the oracle db useing a pre backup command and starting it after the backup with a post backup command.

Thank you.. Yes, the purpose

Thank you..

Yes, the purpose of implementing SSR2011 is to protect oracle server incase of Hardware or OS failure.

The Daily backups are exporting on Disk by DBA guys & then taking on Tapes. 

If OS fails we will Restore the latest Image from SSR & DBA guys will restore the Latest Backups.

Will you please elaborate the term "Crash consistent backups".

hi you have to use backup

you have to use backup pre-post command to start and shutdown oracle database in the time of image backup.
