RMAN Backup Policy using the wrong schedule

Created: 14 Sep 2012 • Updated: 14 Nov 2012 | 1 comment
This issue has been solved. See solution.

i have a Server which has two oracle database instances, for that i have 2 RMAN backup policies from that host, each policy points to a rman script to backup a database instance. 

 

The Policy has a full schedule which kicks of the script and an application backup that backup the channels 

the issue is when second backup starts the schedule that its pointing to is the other policy 

Here is the example 

Name of Policy 1: Oracle-db1

schedule: full and application backup

client: oracle1 

backup selection: /usr/openv/netbackup/ext/db_ext/oracle/config/hot_database_backup_DB1.sh

 

 

Name of Policy 2: Oracle-db2

schedule: full and application backup

client: oracle1 

backup selection: /usr/openv/netbackup/ext/db_ext/oracle/config/hot_database_backup_DB2.sh 

 

when the backup of policy 2 starts it shows up in activity monitor for the full schedule is Oracle-db2 and for the application backup its Oracle-db2

This has been a 'known issue' for a long time.

You need to specify the policy name in the script to ensure correct policy/schedule pair is used.
