Dear Experts,

I just upgrade my oracle instance from P18 to P45, does it has effect to my Symantec Backup exec oracle agent?

Because after i upgrade the oracle, the list of backed up oracle control file is not updated, the newest control file listed is dated 8 Oct 2012 (i upgrade the oracle on 8 Oct mid-night). The backup job for 9 Oct and 10 Oct is successfull without any errors, but i cannot find the new backed up control file listed on Restore selection.

Do i need to reinstall the Oracle Agent?

I will appreciate your comments...

Actually there should not be any issue if you are upgrading the database, still you can check following things.

1) Can you please check dates in restore wizard/window, if they are proper or not

If you are using Backup Exec 2010 check "Beginning backup date" and "Ending backup date" in restore window

If it is Backup Exec 2012 check "show backup from" date

2) Run Inventory and catalog of Media 

3) Restart the beremote service if above two options does not work.'s picture

Hi Lilavati,

Thanks for your reply.

I've ran inventory and catalog but none of them working.

So, I reinstall oracle agent and restart services, the list of backed up control files is now appear. I can test the redirected oracle restore without any issues anymore.

Thank you.
