Oracle Backup Issue | NBU ver 6.5

Created: 19 Jul 2012 | 5 comments

Hi Guru's

Recently had issue with an oracle backup,

Sorry if the information given is insufficient but will try my best.

As per what the structure is currently (Provided with the backup selection list in bracket):

1st DB Backup Runs (/usr/local/nb/scripts/oracle_rman_hot.uaedb1)

2nd RMAN Logs (Backup selection list is empty)

3rd DB Files ( / )

4th OS Files ( / )


When a Oracle backup is triggered,

the others gets triggered automaticly until it completes.

And all these are in a different policy:


1.DB Backup = (DB_ORA_UAE)


3.DB Files =  (DB_Files)

4.OS Files =  (FS_UAE_UNIX_1)


My concern is, how to make the rman log, db files and os files jobs to run automated upon triggering the DB backup?

is it by script?

On another note, DBA team informed me that all the backups in order, but i cant seem to see that in netbackup.

Thank You Guru's

Initiaing backup by script is most feasible and easiest way.

Other options I cant think up:

* Adjust order with Poricy Priority and Start Window. But by this way, you have to try & check result several times. You will get irritated. :-(

* Initiate backups in oracle_rman_hot.uaedb1. If the client for this policy is master server host, you can initiate any manual backup using "bpbackup -i" from this host. Otherwise,if the client is not master, please consider to use user backup, or use rsh to initiate manual backup on remote master server.

Hi Yasuhisa,

Thank you, but im refering to DB scripts, not those nbu commands

If im not mistaken, these are configured by platform teams

Thanks Again Yasuhisa
