Configuring the appliance within a RAC environment
This feature requires a NetBackup appliance running software version 2.7.1 or later.
RAC may be used with the OIP and the appliance. You can use either theor option in the OIP configuration. Both options only use a single node when a share is used on the appliance.
When theoption is used, the DBAs have the ability to load balance the backups to the appliance share. Once the DBAs have placed a backup on the appliance share, NetBackup uses a single node of the cluster to protect the share. It does not matter which nodes are used to backup to the appliance share. NetBackup only uses a single node to protect the data on the share.
Theoption uses a single node of the RAC cluster to move the data to the appliance share and protect the share.
Use the following procedure to configure the RAC environment to use OIP and the appliance to protect the share.
To configure the RAC environment with OIP and the appliance NFS share
- Mount the appliance share at the same mount point on each node.
- Configure all backups images so that they are cataloged under one client name.
- Configure the master server to allow physical host name access to the backup images.
cd /usr/openv/netbackup/db/altnames echo "failover_name" >> hostname1 echo "hostname1" >> hostname1 echo "vipname1" >> hostname1 echo "hostname2" >> hostname1 echo "vipname2" >> hostname1 cp hostname1 hostname2
- Add a database instance from one RAC node to the Oracle database instance repository.
- Create an OIP (using the Database Backup Shares or Whole Database - Datafile Copy Share option) and only put one instance from the RAC cluster into the policy.
