Instances and Databases tab
Use the Instances and Databasese tab to select instances, instance groups, or clients that the Oracle Intelligent Policy is scheduled to back up. Until you select items the first time for this policy, the panel is blank. Click to display another panel that lists all the possible instances, instance groups, or clients.
If you add a new Oracle policy or change an existing Oracle policy, this tab appears along the top of the policy configuration dialog.
You cannot mix instances and instance groups in this list. If you select instances for a policy, then you want to select an instance group, the instances you select are deleted from the list.
The Instances and Databases tab displays all the instances or instance groups that the Oracle policy is scheduled to back up. If you add a new Oracle policy or change an existing Oracle policy, this tab is one of several tabs that appear along the top of the dialog. Click to display three possible categories of items:
Select Instances panel appears that displays all registered instances. Click the check box next to the instance or instances that you want to add to the list. Instances that are already selected and in the list have their check boxes checked. If an instance does not appear in this panel because it is unregistered, you can register that instance and add it to the policy later.(OIP option). This panel displays all instances that you have selected to back up for this policy. To add new instances to this list, click . A
The instance selection does not take effect until you click.
Table: Instances and Databases tab fields describes all the instance fields for the instances in this list.
Select Instance Group panel appears that displays all instance groups that you have created. All instances that are a part of an instance group at backup time are backed up. To add an instance group to the list of groups that are displayed on this panel, click .(OIP option). This panel displays all instance groups that you have created. To add new instances to this list, click . A
To see what instances are backed up if the policy is run for an instance group, select the group from the list, then click. A panel appears that shows a list of all the registered instances in the group to be backed up.
Options tab and the Instances and Databases tab are removed, because those options must now be set in the RMAN script that the user supplies.(Non-OIP option). This option is not for use with OIP. If you want to use the client with scripts or templates method of configuring an Oracle policy instead of the new instance method, select . If you select this option, the existing backup selections and instances or instance group are erased. Also, the
