About the bp.conf file on UNIX and Linux systems

A NetBackup for Oracle user can create an Oracle client bp.conf file in the Oracle user's home directory on the NetBackup for Oracle client host. When a NetBackup for Oracle operation is started, the user's bp.conf file is searched before the master configuration file (/usr/openv/netbackup/bp.conf) on the client. Any option that is found at the user level overrides the same option's setting at the master level.

Table: Options for the user bp.conf file shows the options you can set in the user's bp.conf file.

Option

Purpose

BPBACKUP_POLICY

This option specifies the name of the policy to use for the Oracle backup.

BPBACKUP_SCHED

This option specifies the name of the Application Backup type of schedule to use for the Oracle backup.

CLIENT_NAME

This option specifies the name of the Oracle client. This name is especially useful for a redirected restore operation.

CLIENT_READ_TIMEOUT

Use this option to increase the number of seconds that the Oracle client initially waits for a response from the NetBackup server. The default is the greater of 900 or CLIENT_READ_TIMEOUT.

SERVER

This option specifies the name of the NetBackup master server.

VERBOSE

This option causes NetBackup to include more information in its logs.

For more information, see the NetBackup System Administrator's Guide, Volume I.

The following shows example bp.conf entries for an Oracle user:

VERBOSE=1
