NetBackup 7.1 for Oracle with RMAN
Does anyone know what can be backed up by using NetBackup client for Oracle?
Basically, what we try to achieve is backing up the database content (database, archive logs, control files) and the database related text files (SPFILEs and control file traces) in one policy, so that we can get the consistent restores later. However, if we set the policy type to Oracle and schedule type to "Application Backup", it can backup the database content but not the text files. If we set the policy type to Standard and the schedule type to "User Backup", the text files are backed up but the database content backup failed.
We know by using the RMAN scripts to backup to local disk, it works actually. But if we using the same scripts to backup to NetBackup, it keeps failing with the error message "Exit Status 245: the specified policy is not of the correct client type".
Can anyone explain why this happens? Is there any workaround solution?
