Can I use Symantec Backup Exec 2012 to truncate ORACLE Database log files

Created: 14 Mar 2013 | 1 comment

Hello,

Just as the title says  Can I use Symantec Backup Exec 2012 to truncate ORACLE Database log files.  The database sits on a Windows 2008 R2 box, I am using the Oracle plugin and a remote agent to backup the database itself but as the database is in archive log mode it produces a log file that I need to trucate periodicaly so I am researching ways to do this.

Thanks in advance

You can configure the backup such that the log file gets deleted after it has been backed up. Hope it answers your query.
