Configuring a NAS snapshot policy for NetBackup for SAP on UNIX/Linux
This topic describes how to configure a NetBackup for SAP NAS snapshot policy.
- Open the policy you want to configure.
- Click on the Attributes tab.
- Select the SAP policy type.
Select a storage unit.
NetBackup creates the snapshot on disk regardless of which storage unit you select.
NetBackup for SAP uses the policy storage unit for backups of the profile and the configuration files. (The files that are backed up as part of brbackup phase 2). You can override this storage unit in the Application Backup schedule.
- Select Perform snapshot backups and Retain snapshots for instant recovery or SLP management.
- Select Perform off-host backup.
- From the Use list, select Data Mover.
- From the Machine list, select Network Attached Storage.
See the policy configuration topic of the NetBackup Snapshot Client Administrator's Guide.
When the policy runs, NetBackup automatically selects the NAS_Snapshot method for creating the snapshot.
As an alternative, you can manually select the NAS_Snapshot method in the Advanced Snapshot Options dialog box from the policy display. Information about the Maximum Snapshots (Instant Recovery only) parameter is available.
- Click the Schedules tab.
- Click New.
Configure both an Automatic Backup schedule and an Application Backup schedule, as follows:
The Automatic Backup schedule is for the database files.
In the Destination panel, under Instant recovery, select Snapshots only. This option suppresses NetBackup's default behavior, which is to copy the snapshot to a storage unit.
The Application Backup schedule is for the archived redo logs and the control files.
- Click the Clients tab.
Specify clients to be backed up by this policy.
- Click the Backup Selections tab.
- Specify a backup script.
Review the information for how to use scripts for a NetBackup for SAP with Snapshot Client policy
- Configure other attributes and add any additional schedules and backup selections.
