Step

Action

Step 1

Configure information about the Oracle instances for the Oracle Agent.

See Configuring an Oracle instance on Windows computers.

See Configuring an Oracle instance on Linux servers.

Step 2

Enable database access for the media server.

Whenever Oracle instance information changes or a new configuration is added, you must update the Remote Agent Utility. If credential information is not updated, is incorrect, or the server is down, the error "Unable to attach to a resource..." may appear when you run a backup job. If this message appears, you must bring the server online and configure the information.

For Oracle RAC, run the Remote Agent Utility on each node and add information about the instances. When Oracle RAC nodes are added or removed, you must enter information about any changes to instances in the Remote Agent Utility.

Note:

When you use the Remote Agent Utility, the user account with which you are logged on should be a member of the Oracle DBA group.

You must have administrator privileges to run the Remote Agent Utility.

See Enabling database access for Oracle operations on Windows computers.

See Enabling database access for Oracle operations on Linux servers.

Step 3

Set authentication credentials for Oracle.
