Configuring policies for BLI backups with NetBackup for SAP
This topic explains how to configure BLI backups for SAP policies. BLI backups do not back up all database objects. Include policies to perform snapshot and stream-based backups.
Your backup configuration must ensure that the entire database can be successfully restored.
To configure a policy for BLI backups, configure the following:
To configure a policy for BLI backups
- Open the policy you want to configure.
- Click the Attributes tab.
- From the Policy Type list, choose SAP.
- Select a Policy storage.
- Select Perform block level incremental backups.
- To configure schedules, click the Schedules tab.
SAP does not support snapshot backups of archive logs or the database profile and configuration files in the brbackup phase 2.
To perform a whole database backup, configure the following:
One or more Automatic Backup schedules to perform BLI backups of the data files.
This backup automatically includes the control file.
An Application Backup schedule type to back up the control files and archive logs and phase 2 profile and configuration files.
- On the Clients tab, specify clients to be backed up with this policy.
- On the Backup Selections tab, specify the script.
