About the RMAN SEND command variables
The Oracle SEND command and ENV parameter support several options that are used with NetBackup for Oracle. The variables that the SEND command specifies supersede those specified by the ENV parameter. Also, spaces are not permitted when the variables and values are specified.
Table: Options for the SEND command describes the options you can set for the RMAN SEND command.
Table: Options for the SEND command
Lets you set the permissions on a backup image at backup time. Possible values are the following:
USER - set the permissions to 600. Only the original user who backed up the data has access to the backup images.
GROUP - set the permissions to 660. Anyone from the same group as the original user who backed up the data has access to the backup images.
ANY - set the permissions to 664. Anyone has access to the backup images.
If this keyword is not specified, the permissions default to 660.
To specify this keyword, use the send command to set the variable. For example:
The BKUP_IMAGE_PERM option does not affect the permissions for the physical files that are included in an RMAN Proxy copy backup. Ensure the physical file owner, group, and permissions are set correctly before the backup.
For more information, review the following document:
Specifies the name of the Oracle client.
Specifies which copy of the backup image to use for the restore.
By default, NetBackup collects metadata on Oracle databases and backup operations. If you need to disable metadata collection, set to (NO).
Turning off metadata collection prevents the NetBackup APIs and the NetBackup web UI from returning backup information about Oracle databases. Also, Guided Recovery operations do not function properly with metadata collection disabled.
Review Table: Disabling the metadata option for more information about what happens when you disable metadata collection using the SEND command or the user or the master
Enables the parent ID of the job ID to be displayed in the Activity Monitor (only valid if it is a scheduled job).
Specifies a snapshot rollback restore using a script or RMAN command.
Specifies the NetBackup for the Oracle schedule that NetBackup uses for a proxy copy file-based backup. (This schedule can be Full, Differential Incremental, or Cumulative Incremental backup type). For scheduled backups, this variable is passed from the scheduler. When you create an RMAN template with the NetBackup for Oracle RMAN template generation wizard, this variable is automatically created in the template.
Specifies the number of backup streams that NetBackup starts simultaneously in each proxy copy session. When a backup is started, NetBackup groups all data files into a specified number of backup streams that are based on the file sizes. NetBackup tries to create streams of equal size. The default value for NB_ORA_PC_STREAMS is 1.
Only a user can set this variable. When you create an RMAN template using the NetBackup for Oracle RMAN template generation wizard, it is automatically created in the template. In order for this variable to be automatically created, you must provide a value for the number of parallel streams.
This option also can be used to specify the number of restore streams that start simultaneously. For more information about restores, refer to:
Specifies the name of the policy to use for the Oracle backup.
Specifies the restore priority in NetBackup.
Specifies the name of the Application Backup schedule to use for the Oracle backup.
Specifies the name of the NetBackup master server.
Configured to instruct the
