Creating an Oracle database instance group
This procedure lets you create an instance group that includes instances with a common set of credentials. You can create a default instance group for newly-discovered instances. Then you can create a policy that uses this instance group to automatically protect the new instances.
To create an Oracle database instance group
- In the NetBackup Administration Console, in the left pane, expand NetBackup Management > Applications > Oracle.
- Right-click Instance Groups and select New Instance Group. The following New Instance Group dialog appears.
- Enter the Instance Group Name in the text window, then fill in the appropriate credentials, and click OK.
Instance group names cannot be localized.
The newly created instance group name appears in the right pane.
Click Help for help entering the appropriate credentials. If necessary, contact the Oracle database administrator for the correct set of credentials.
- To assign individual instances to this instance group, click Instances in the left pane to display the list of instances.
- Right-click the desired instance and select Register to display the following Register Instance panel. You can use the Ctrl and Shift keys to select multiple instances for registering.
- Make sure Add to group and register using group credentials is selected. Use the Instance Group pulldown menu to select the instance group that you want the instance to be added to, then click OK.
- Repeat for each instance that you want included in the instance group.
- You may want to make this instance group the default for all newly discovered instances. If so, all newly discovered instances are automatically added to this instance group. More information is available about auto-registering an instance group.
