Table: Oracle Agent Configuration options

Item

Description

Local instance name

Displays the name of the Oracle instance. If you edit an instance, you cannot change the instance name.

For Oracle RAC nodes, enter the fully qualified domain name of each physical node.

The fully qualified domain name of the node appears on the media server in the Backup Selections tree, under Oracle Real Application Clusters.

The name is in the format RAC-<dbname>-<dbid>, where dbname is the database name, and dbid is the database ID.

User name

Displays the user name for the Oracle instance.

If the credentials for the Oracle instance change, you must enter a user with SYSDBA rights to the Oracle instance.

For Oracle RAC nodes, enter the same set of credentials for all of the nodes.

Password

Displays the password for the Oracle instance user name.

Confirm password

Displays the password again to confirm it.

Use recovery catalog

Indicates that you plan to use the Oracle recovery catalog.

The Oracle Agent supports the use of the RMAN recovery catalog to manage the backup, restore, and recovery of Oracle databases. If you choose not to use a recovery catalog, RMAN uses the target database control file as the sole repository of metadata.

TNS name

Displays the Oracle Net Service name.

User name

Displays the user name for the Oracle recovery catalog.

Password

Displays the password for the Oracle recovery catalog.

Confirm password

Displays the password for the recovery catalog again to confirm it.

Media server name or IP address

Displays the name or IP address of the Backup Exec media server where you want to send the DBA-initiated backup jobs.

You must use the same form of name resolution for all operations. For example, if you use the IP address of this computer for backup operations, you must also use the IP address for restore operations. If you use the full computer name for backup operations, you must also use the full computer name for restore operations.

Job template name

Displays the name of the Backup Exec job template that you want the DBA-initiated job to use for backup and restore operations. You create the job template on the DBA-initiated Job Settings dialog box on the Backup Exec media server. If you do not specify a job template, the default job template is used.

See Creating a template for DBA-initiated jobs.
