Registering an Oracle database instance
The NetBackup Discovery Service discovers Oracle database instances on the local client host. The service reports to the master server upon startup and every 4 hours thereafter. The master server collects the discovered instances in an instance repository. The user accesses the repository on the NetBackup Administration Console or by running the nboraadm command.
See the nboraadm description in the NetBackup Commands Reference Guide.
Use the following procedure to register an Oracle database instance that the discovery service adds to the instance list.
To register an Oracle database instance
- In the NetBackup Administration Console, in the left pane, expand NetBackup Management > Applications > Oracle.
- Click All Instances. The right pane displays a list of instances. Instances that have previously been registered show a date and time in the Registered column.
- Double-click the instance that you want to register. The Edit Instance dialog box appears. For example, you can select ORAC13 to display the following:
You can select multiple instances to register at the same time.
- (Conditional) Use the Override Default TNS_ADMIN Path if you need to override the default network administration directory on the client system. Enter the fully qualified path for the network administration directory on this host. Click Help to display a description of the parameter. Example of the parameter:
- In the Credential area, click Edit to display the Register Instance dialog box. For example:
- In the Register Instance dialog box, click Use Instance Credentials.
The Oracle database user is required to have a certain level of credentials. The Oracle database user must have
SYSDBAprivileges (based on version of Oracle).
- In the Instance credentials area of the window, select one of the three authentication options:
OS authentication only
Oracle authentication only
Oracle and OS authentication
The Oracle authentication only option lets you use SUDO or ssh keys for the user name and password. If you use this option then you must enter specific Oracle credentials. You may need to contact the Oracle DBA for the correct credentials. The system tries to validate the credentials and reports its findings.
- (Optional) Click Oracle RMAN recovery catalog credentials to enter credentials for the RMAN recovery catalog. Then click OK to save the credentials. TheEdit Instance dialog box reappears.
- In the right pane of the Applications dialog, check the Registered column to see that the instance is now registered.
- Repeat for all other instances that you want registered.
