About the RMAN SEND command variables

Oracle SEND command supports several options that are used with NetBackup for Oracle.

Table: Options for the SEND command describes the options you can set for the RMAN SEND command.

Table: Options for the SEND command

Option

Purpose

BKUP_IMAGE_PERM

Lets you set the permissions on a backup image at backup time. Possible values are the following:

USER - set the permissions to 600. Only the original user who backed up the data has access to the backup images.

GROUP - set the permissions to 660. Anyone from the same group as the original user who backed up the data has access to the backup images.

ANY - set the permissions to 664. Anyone has access to the backup images.

If this keyword is not specified, the permissions default to 660.

To specify this keyword, use the send command to set the variable. For example:

SEND 'BKUP_IMAGE_PERM=ANY';

NB_ORA_CLIENT

Specifies the name of the Oracle client.

NB_ORA_COPY_NUMBER

Specifies which copy of the backup to use for the restore.

NB_ORA_METADATA

Enables (YES) and disables (NO) metadata collection for Guided Recovery operations.

NB_ORA_PARENT_JOBID

Enables the parent ID of the job ID to be displayed in the Activity Monitor (only valid if it is a scheduled job).

NB_ORA_PC_RESTORE

Specifies a snapshot rollback restore using a script or RMAN command.

NB_ORA_PC_SCHED

Specifies the NetBackup for the Oracle schedule that NetBackup uses for a proxy copy file-based backup. (This schedule can be Automatic Full, Automatic Differential Incremental, or Automatic Cumulative Incremental backup type). For scheduled backups, this variable is passed from the scheduler. When you create an RMAN template with the NetBackup for OracleRMANtemplate generation wizard, this variable is automatically created in the template.

NB_ORA_PC_STREAMS

Specifies the number of backup streams that NetBackup starts simultaneously in each proxy copy session. When a backup starts, NetBackup groups all data files into a specified number of backup streams that are based on the file sizes. NetBackup tries to create streams of equal size. The default value for NB_ORA_PC_STREAMS is 1.

Only a user can set this variable. When you create an RMAN template using the NetBackup for Oracle RMAN template generation wizard, it is automatically created in the template when you provide a value for the number of parallel streams.

NB_ORA_POLICY

Specifies the name of the policy to use for the Oracle backup.

NB_ORA_RESTORE_PRIORITY

Specifies the restore priority in NetBackup.

NB_ORA_SCHED

Specifies the name of the Application Backup schedule to use for the Oracle backup.
