Question on RMAN backups and Netbackup
We are implementing a Data Domain solution for our backups and the recommendation from our provider is to use the NetBackup Oracle agent (the DBAs currently dump to disk, and we pick up the RMAN files via a normal system backup).
So, I've read through the NBU for Oracle Admin Guide, and am ready to install and test. However, the DBAs are asking how Netbackup handles the "Backup as copy" option. They seem to be concerned with file names (?) and recovering from this type of RMAN backup. I reviewed the guide and there is no reference to "backup as copy".
If anyone can clarify this RMAN "backup as copy", and how NBU works with that option, it would be greatly appreciated. We are running version 6.5.6 on RHEL.
