Running the XML import wizard on the client
NetBackup for Oracle includes an XML import wizard that solicits information from the user about the desired import operations. The wizard uses the information to create a template. You can use the template immediately, or you can save it for later use.
The NetBackup for Oracle XML import wizard saves an XML import template locally in a user-specified location on the NetBackup client. XML import templates are not stored on the server because a restore is always user directed, not scheduled. Typically, you run an XML import template immediately and then delete it.
The restore process requires a password for Oracle database access. Templates store encrypted passwords that are decrypted at runtime.
To start the XML import wizard
- Start the NetBackup Backup, Archive, and Restore interface.
- Do one of the following:
On Windows: From the Windows Start menu, choose All Programs > Veritas NetBackup > Backup, Archive, and Restore. To change the policy type, choose File > Specify NetBackup Machines and Policy Type.
Perform this step if the Oracle node is not visible.
On UNIX and Linux: (Conditional) To change the policy type, choose Actions > Specify NetBackup Machines and Policy Type.
- Do one of the following:
On Windows, click Select for Restore.
On UNIX and Linux, click the Restore Files tab.
- Expand the Oracle node in the left pane to view an Oracle database instance hierarchy in the right pane.
- In the left pane of the Backup, Archive, and Restore interface, select the Oracle database instance.
Database objects that can be imported are listed under the Users node. The tool displays only the schema owners and objects accessible by the current user login.
- Expand the Users list to the schema owners of the objects to be imported.
- In the right pane, select database objects that exist in the archive to be restored.
- Choose Actions > Restore.
- Enter information about the restore operation you want to perform in the screens that the NetBackup for Oracle XML import wizard displays.
The screens are as follows:
Target Database Logon Credentials
Archive Import Options
NetBackup Archive Source Options
NetBackup Import Destination Options (Windows)
If you need an explanation of any of the fields on the wizard screens, or more details, click Help on the wizard screen.
- Review the summary.
When you have completed the wizard, the Selection Summary screen displays the summary of the XML import template.
You can choose to run the template immediately after the wizard finishes, save the template locally, or both.
