Configuring an Oracle Intelligent Policy using Replication Director
To create an Oracle Intelligent Policy
- In the NetBackup Administration Console, in the left pane, expand NetBackup Management > Policies.
- On the Actions menu, click New > New Policy.
- Type a unique name for the new policy in the Add a New Policy dialog box and click OK.
- Select the Attributes tab. The following items are specific to creating an Oracle policy for snapshots with Replication Director:
For NetBackup to perform Oracle backups, select Oracle. An Oracle tab appears.
Oracle combines snapshots (proxy) and stream-based backups as part of the same backup. The storage that is indicated here is used for the stream-based part of the Replication Director backup.
Select a storage lifecycle policy that is configured to contain the stream-based (non-snapshot) part of the database backup. The storage must use a storage lifecycle policy that is configured for non-snapshot backups.
Use Replication Director
Enable Use Replication Director to automatically select other options that Replication Director requires:
Perform snapshot backups: Ensures that the policy creates snapshots of the disk array.
Retain snapshots for Instant Recovery or SLP management: Ensures that the policy retains the snapshot after the backup completes.
- Select the Schedules tab. Create one schedule:
Type of backup: Select Full Backup. The Full Backup is used for both the snapshot (proxy) part of the database and the non-snapshot (stream-based) part of the Oracle database.
The Oracle Intelligent Policy does not support the snapshot of an Archived Redo Log Backup. To take a snapshot of the archived redo logs, use the script- or template-based Oracle policy method.
Unless creating Block Level Incremental (BLI) backups, always select Full Backup to create snapshots of the Oracle database.
Override policy storage selection: Enable and select the SLP that is configured for snapshot replication. (A snapshot SLP is one in which the first operation is a snapshot operation.) This option must be enabled so that the schedule storage overrides the policy storage with a snapshot SLP.
Retention: The retention for the streamed data is based on the non-snapshot SLP that was indicated as the Policy storage in Step 4.
The non-snapshot SLP specified on the policy storage in Step 4 determines the retention for the streamed data.
The snapshot SLP that is specified as the schedule storage (Override policy storage selection) determines the retention for the snapshot data.
Click OK to save the schedule.
- Select the Instances and Databases tab and specify the instances to back up. The policy must include at least one instance. To continue to use the Oracle Intelligent Policy method, select either Protect instances or Protect instance groups.
- Select the Backup Selections tab. Select the parts of the database to back up. Note that the selection applies to all listed instances.
The following can be selected for the policies that use Replication Director:
Whole database: Backs up the entire database (default).
Partial database - Tablespaces: Backs up the tablespaces.
Partial database - Datafiles: Backs up the data files.
Fast Recovery Area (FRA): Do not select for a policy that uses Replication Director.
Database Backup Shares: Do not select for a policy that uses Replication Director.
Whole Database - Datafile Copy Share: Do not select for a policy that uses Replication Director.
- Select the Oracle tab to configure Oracle RMAN properties.
- When the policy configuration is complete, click OK.
