Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.3 and BackupExec 2010 Agent

Created: 30 Oct 2012 • Updated: 05 Nov 2012 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello together,

I am new in this forum and i want to give some information about me.

My name is Tobias Hertkorn and in principal I am an Oracle DBA. Me and my company support customer regarding all Oracle Database tasks.

Now a customer of us use BackupExec 2010 as backup tool.

We installed for this customer a Oracle Cluster 11gR2 on an Oracle Enterprise Linux 6.3. Now our customer wants to install a BackupExec 2010 agent on this two servers to backup the complete server for getting a fast possibility to recover those servers in a disaster issue.

I read in the specs, that the usage of BackupExec 2010 agent is not supported by symantec.

Is this correct? Or does anybody has experience with that or better a solution of my problem.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

As per the compatibility guide it is not supported , so only option left is to perform backup with oracle using rman and then backup the backup sets using Backup  exec, Or the other option is find a compatible product.
