You also need Library Based Tape Drive license.

License keys to be added to SAN Media Server:
Enterprise Client
Library Based Tape Drive
SSO

Existing tape drive and SSO licenses used on other media servers can be used on SAN media server.

License key to be added to the Master server:
Application and Database pack

Database license is only needed on the master server to enable the selection of Oracle type backup in the policy.

From the Netbackup for Oracle SysAdmin
 
Linking NetBackup for Oracle with RMAN
 
Linking RMAN with a library provided by NetBackup for Oracle on UNIX is the only
 
NetBackup requirement. Before writing to sequential devices such as tape, you must link
 
the Oracle Server software with the media management API library installed by
 
NetBackup for Oracle on UNIX. Oracle uses this library when it needs to write to, or read
 
from devices supported by Media Manager.
 
¥ To link Oracle with NetBackup for Oracle on UNIX
 
1. Become the Oracle user.
 
su - oracle
 
2.
Shutdown all of the Oracle instances (SIDs). The user must connect as sysdba, either
 
using OS Authentication or Oracle Authentication (set up in the Oracle password
 
file). The following example is for Oracle9i.
 
Set the ORACLE_SID environment variable to the first SID.
 
Connect as sysdba using OS Authentication:
 
sqlplus /nolog
 
connect / as sysdba
 
shutdown immediate
 
exit
 
Connect as sysdba using Oracle Authentication (via password file):
 
sqlplus /nolog
 
connect userid/password as sysdba
 
shutdown immediate
 
exit
 
Change the ORACLE_SID environment variable to any other SID that uses this Oracle
 
installation and repeat above commands.
 
3.
Set up automatic linking.
 
a.
Change directory to install_path/netbackup/bin/
 
b.
Run the oracle_link script:
 
./oracle_link
 
This script determines the Oracle version level and then links Oracle to
 
NetBackup accordingly. All output from this script will be captured in a
 
/tmp/make_trace.pid file. To change the trace file location, change the
 
MAKE_TRACE
variable in the oracle_link script.
