Implementing Netbackup for SAP in solaris cluster

Created: 22 Nov 2012 • Updated: 04 Jan 2013 | 5 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Netbackup version : 7.5

Solaris cluster : 3.2 (2 node cluster)

I have installed Netbackup client on both the nodes of the cluster. I have configured the SAP_ONLINE_Backup and other script files in the Node1 (Active node) and tested the SAP backup. The backup completed successfully.

How to configure the Node2 ?

Should I add the Virtual name of the cluster as client in the policy?

yes,

you need to add the virtual name of the cluster to the policy to get the backup always from active node, 

active node may be either of the one...

There is a 2 node cluster in DC with SAP database running and the same setup is there in DR also.

I want to take SAP online backup in DC as well as in DR.

Now The SAP database is up and running in DC. I have already configured the SAP online backup and it is working fine.

How to configure the backup in DR site?? Is it the same as DR??

RamNagalla's picture

yes, you need to configure the backup sameway in the DR site also, 

make sure you are taking backup from DC and DR sites, to have more accruate backup, and not to miss the sync between DC and DR.

Do you have another netbackup setup for DR sites?

Sivaranjani's picture

yes, We have a Netbackup setup in he DR site as well.

In the DR site the SAP is in mounted state. Is it possible to run the online backup policy??

i assume its just mounted , and not online, if that is the case, you need to go with Offline backup.

reffer Netbackup admin guide for SAP for offline backup info..
