Creating RMAN templates using the NetBackup for Oracle RMAN template generation wizard
The NetBackup for Oracle backup wizard stores information about desired RMAN backup operations. The wizard uses the information to create a template that you can run immediately. Or you can save in a NetBackup location on the master server for later use. Before you can save on the master server, the client must be in a policy or have images in the NetBackup catalog.
For more information on backup strategies and RMAN functionality, see your Oracle documentation.
If Oracle is installed on a Windows system, the Backup, Archive, and Restore interface on the client displays an Oracle node in the left pane. From the client, expand the Oracle node in the left pane to view an Oracle database instance hierarchy. Select a node in the left pane to view details in the right pane.
If your current logon does not have Oracle SYSDBA or SYSBACKUP privileges, the system prompts you to enter your Oracle database logon information. You need to enter your user name and password with SYSDBA or SYSBACKUP privileges to continue. Optionally, you can also enter your net service name (TNS alias).
To create RMAN templates using the NetBackup for Oracle RMAN template generation wizard
- Log on to NetBackup for Oracle client and start the NetBackup Backup, Archive, and Restore interface.
See Starting the NetBackup Backup, Archive, and Restore interface.
- In the Backup, Archive, and Restore interface, expand an Oracle database instance and select the database object(s) (data files, tablespaces, archived redo logs) to back up.
When you select the Oracle database instance, you back up the whole database using RMAN.
- Choose Actions > Backup.
The NetBackup for Oracle RMAN template generation wizard displays the following screens for you to enter information about the backup operation you want to perform:
Welcome (UNIX only)
Target Database Logon Credentials (SYSDBA only)
Recovery Catalog Logon Credentials
Archived redo logs
NetBackup for Oracle Configuration Variables
If you need an explanation of any of the fields on the wizard screens or more details, click Help on the wizard screen.
- After you complete the wizard, the Template Summary screen displays the summary of the backup template:
You can run the template immediately after the wizard finishes, save the template to the master server, or both. Select Perform backup immediately and or Save Template then click Finish.
