Chapter 1. Introducing Data Protection for Oracle


This section provides a brief overview of Tivoli Storage Manager and Data Protection for Oracle.

Understanding Tivoli Storage Manager


Tivoli Storage Manager is a client/server program that provides storage management services in a multi-vendor, multi-platform computer environment. Tivoli Storage Manager provides these functions: v Reduces network complexity Tivoli Storage Manager reduces network complexity with interfaces and functions that span network environments. This provides consistency across different operating systems and hardware. v Increases administrator productivity Tivoli Storage Manager can reduce the cost of network administration by allowing administrators to perform these actions: Automate repetitive processes Schedule unattended processes Administer Tivoli Storage Manager from anywhere in the network v Reduces the risk of data loss Many users do not back up their data. Other users apply stand-alone backup techniques with diskettes and tapes as the only protection for business data. These backup systems often produce disappointing results during recovery operations. Tivoli Storage Manager schedules routine backups that enable users to recover from accidental data deletion without administrator involvement. v Optimizes existing storage resources Tivoli Storage Manager allows users to move files from client file systems to Tivoli Storage Manager storage. This saves space on client file systems and can eliminate the expense of upgrading client storage hardware. Tivoli Storage Manager monitors client storage space and moves files from client file systems to Tivoli Storage Manager storage if an out-of-space condition threatens. This function can also eliminate the expense of client hardware upgrades. Tivoli Storage Manager provides these services: v Backup and restore services These services generate backup copies of data at specified intervals and restores the data from these copies when required. These services protect against workstation or file server media failure, accidental file deletion, data corruption, data vandalism, or site disasters. v Archive and retrieve services These services provide backup-archive clients with point-in-time copies of data for long-term storage.

Copyright IBM Corp. 1997, 2007

v Server hierarchical storage management services These services migrate client files from expensive storage media to less expensive storage media (from disk to tape, for example). Administrator-defined thresholds determine file migration for each storage pool. Migration applies to all backup and archive client files. v Automation services Tivoli Storage Manager administrators can increase productivity by automating common storage administration tasks. v Administration services Tivoli Storage Manager administration services provide support for routine monitoring, administration, and accounting. Administrators can manage the server from another system or the same system. The Tivoli Storage Manager utilities allow the administrator to perform these functions: Set client and server options Define devices Format storage volumes Add additional clients Label tape volumes Tivoli Storage Manager monitors scheduled operations and maintains status information in the database. An administrator can export data to removable media. This data can be imported by another server, making the export and import features a convenient utility for moving server data. The administrator can specify the accounting option generated at the end of each client session. v Security services Security services control user access to Tivoli Storage Manager data, storage, policy definitions, and administrative commands. v Disaster recovery management Disaster recovery management helps the administrator implement a comprehensive backup and recovery procedure for important business applications, data, and records.

Overview of Data Protection for Oracle


Data Protection for Oracle currently supports Oracle 9i and Oracle 10g databases with the Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN). See Chapter 2, Installing Data Protection for Oracle, on page 5 for specific levels of supported Oracle databases.

RMAN and Data Protection for Oracle


RMAN provides consistent and secure backup, restore, and recovery performance for Oracle databases. While the Oracle RMAN initiates a backup or restore, Data Protection for Oracle acts as the interface to the Tivoli Storage Manager server Version 5.3.x (or later). The Tivoli Storage Manager server then applies administrator-defined storage management policies to the data. Data Protection for Oracle implements the Oracle defined Media Management application program interface (SBTAPI) 2.0. This SBTAPI interfaces with RMAN and translates Oracle commands into Tivoli Storage Manager API calls to the Tivoli Storage Manager server. With the use of RMAN, Data Protection for Oracle allows you to perform the following functions: v Full and incremental backup function for the following while online or offline: Databases

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and Users Guide

Tablespaces Datafiles Archive log files Control files v Full database restores while offline v Tablespace and datafile restore while online or offline

LAN-free data transfer


Data Protection for Oracle supports backup and restore operations in a LAN-free environment. This environment shifts the movement of data from the communications network to a storage area network (SAN). Data moves over the SAN to a SAN-attached storage device by the Tivoli Storage Manager Storage Agent. Running Data Protection for Oracle in a LAN-free environment avoids constraints of the network and decreases the load on the Tivoli Storage Manager server, allowing the server to support a greater number of simultaneous connections. Before enabling LAN-free support, you must install the Tivoli Storage Manager Managed System for SAN Storage Agent on the same system as Data Protection for Oracle. See the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for SAN for your operating environment for more information about LAN-free requirements.

Migration and coexistence


| | | v Data Protection for Oracle Version 5.4 does not support Oracle8 (8.0.x) databases. v Existing backups created using Data Protection for Oracle Version 2.2.0 and 2.2.1 are restorable using Data Protection for Oracle 5.4. v Data Protection for Oracle relies heavily on the tdpo.opt file for accuracy in setup and maintenance. The contents of the tdpo.opt file are different than the environment variables used with Data Protection for Oracle Version 2.1. Therefore, Version 2.1 RMAN scripts for environment variables are ignored. For more information, see Chapter 3, Configuring Data Protection for Oracle, on page 39 or Scripts on page 51. v Tivoli Storage Manager server Version 5.3.x (or later) and the Tivoli Storage Manager API Version 5.4.0 (or later) are required. Note that Tivoli Storage Manager API Version 5.3.4 is required for a Solaris SPARC 32-bit environment.

Chapter 2. Installing Data Protection for Oracle


This chapter provides information on the required client environment for Data Protection for Oracle and instructions on installing Data Protection for Oracle. Make sure these conditions exist before installing Data Protection for Oracle: v Tivoli Storage Manager server Version 5.3.x (or later) is configured. v Tivoli Storage Manager API Version 5.4.0 (or later) is installed. Note that Tivoli Storage Manager API Version 5.3.4 is required for a Solaris SPARC 32-bit environment. The required version of the Tivoli Storage Manager API is included in the Data Protection for Oracle product media. v Determine the appropriate Data Protection for Oracle bit size to use by identifying the bit size of your Oracle target database. For example, if you are using a 32-bit Oracle target database, you must use a 32-bit version of Data Protection for Oracle. If you are using a 64-bit Oracle target database, you must use a 64-bit version of Data Protection for Oracle. The Data Protection for Oracle bit size is not determined by the bit size of your operating system. v Any previous version of Data Protection for Oracle or the Tivoli Storage Manager API must be uninstalled before installing a new or updated version. If you are installing a PTF version of Data Protection for Oracle, do not remove the license file from the previous version. The PTF driver does not contain a license. Attention: A root user must install the Tivoli Storage Manager API before installing Data Protection for Oracle on the workstation where the target database resides. After Data Protection for Oracle is installed, see Chapter 3, Configuring Data Protection for Oracle, on page 39 for detailed task instructions you must perform before attempting to back up data.. Note: If you would like to configure Data Protection for Oracle using default settings, see Appendix A, Quick configuration guide, on page 63 for instructions.

Chapter 3. Configuring Data Protection for Oracle


After Data Protection for Oracle is successfully installed, you must complete the following configuration tasks: 1. Define Data Protection for Oracle options in the tdpo.opt file. 2. Register the Data Protection for Oracle node to a Tivoli Storage Manager server. 3. Define Tivoli Storage Manager options in the dsm.opt and dsm.sys files. 4. Define Tivoli Storage Manager policy requirements. 5. Initialize the password with a Tivoli Storage Manager server. Note: If you would like to configure Data Protection for Oracle using default settings, see Appendix A, Quick configuration guide, on page 63 for instructions.

1. Define Data Protection for Oracle options in the tdpo.opt file


The Data Protection for Oracle options file, tdpo.opt, contains options that determine the behavior and performance of Data Protection for Oracle. The only environment variable Data Protection for Oracle Version 5.4.1 recognizes within an RMAN script is the fully qualified path name to the tdpo.opt file. Therefore, some RMAN scripts may need to be edited to use TDPO_OPTFILE=fully qualified path and file name of options file variable in place of other environment variables. For example:
allocate channel t1 type sbt_tape parms ENV=(TDPO_OPTFILE=/home/rman/scripts/tdpo.opt)

The TDPO_OPTFILE variable must be specified in upper case characters only. See Scripts on page 51 for further information. Note that the allocate channel entry is divided on two lines after the parms option to accommodate page formatting. If a fully qualified path name is not provided, Data Protection for Oracle uses the tdpo.opt file located in the Data Protection for Oracle default installation directory. If this file does not exist, Data Protection for Oracle fails. Considerations v It is strongly recommended that you use the tdpo.opt file exclusively instead of default parameters. v RMAN and the tdpoconf and tdposync utilities use the options defined in the tdpo.opt file. v By default, the tdpo.opt file is located in the directory where Data Protection for Oracle is installed. v Data Protection for Oracle supports options (specified in the tdpo.opt file) in both upper case or lower case type. However, the TDPO_OPTFILE variable must be specified in upper case characters only.

Available options
The following options can be set in the tdpo.opt file: dsmi_log Specify the directory that contains the Data Protection for Oracle error log file (tdpoerror.log). Note that if the Tivoli Storage Manager errorlogname option is specified in the dsm.sys file (for the stanza used by Data Protection for Oracle), the errorlogname option will override the value specified by dsmi_log. If the errorlogname option is being used, make sure that it specifies a file in a path that has write permissions. For error log files, create a directory for the error logs and have the dsmi_log option point to that directory. The user performing backups must have writable rights to this directory. dsmi_orc_config Specify the complete path to the Tivoli Storage Manager client user options file (dsm.opt) used during the Data Protection for Oracle session. If you do not specify this option, Data Protection for Oracle looks for this options file in the Data Protection for Oracle installation directory. You must specify this option if your Tivoli Storage Manager client user options file is located in a directory other than the Data Protection for Oracle installation directory. | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | tdpo_fs Specify a file space name on the Tivoli Storage Manager server for Data Protection for Oracle backup, delete, and restore operations. The file space name can contain a string of 1 to 1024 characters. v The default file space name is adsmorc. v When you have more than one Oracle database, use this option to back up each Oracle target database to its own file space on the Tivoli Storage Manager server. v If this option was set during Data Protection for Oracle backup operations, this option must be set during restore and delete operations. v The file space name in the include/exclude statement must match the file space name specified in the tdpo_fs option for include/exclude processing to function correctly. tdpo_owner This option specifies a session-owner name and object owner name. The value can contain a string of 1 to 64 characters. This value is case sensitive. For restore and delete operations, this option must specify the same value that was used during the Data Protection for Oracle backup. Do not set this option when passwordaccess generate is specified. tdpo_pswdpath This option specifies the directory where the TDPO.nodename password file is located. The default value is the directory where Data Protection for Oracle is installed. Note that when passwordaccess generate is specified, Data Protection for Oracle uses the value of the passworddir option specified in the dsm.sys file and does NOT use the tdpo_pswdpath option. However, the directory specified by the passworddir option must be a directory that is writeable by the Oracle user. The Oracle user is the User ID of the target Oracle database instance.

40

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and Users Guide

tdpo_node Specify the Data Protection for Oracle node name used during operations with the Tivoli Storage Manager server. The node name can contain a string of 1 to 64 characters. It is recommended that you use a node name that is different from the backup-archive client node name. Be aware that it is the Tivoli Storage Manager API (and not Data Protection for Oracle) that negotiates which login credentials (nodename, password) to use with the Tivoli Storage Manager server. As a result, certain option settings affect password management. For example, when the tdpo_node option is specified (in the tdpo.opt file) and passwordaccess prompt is specified (in the dsm.sys file), the Tivoli Storage Manager API uses the value of the tdpo_node option and ignores the value of the nodename option (specified in the dsm.sys file). However, when the tdpo_node option is not specified and passwordaccess prompt is specified, the Tivoli Storage Manager API attempts to automatically generate a password (by default), even though passwordaccess prompt is specified. In this situation, processing ends and an error message displays. To avoid receiving an error message, make sure you follow these recommendations: v When passwordaccess prompt is specified in the dsm.sys file, specify the tdpo_node option in the tdpo.opt file. v When passwordaccess generate is specified in the dsm.sys file, do NOT specify the tdpo_node option in the tdpo.opt file. To restore data from one Oracle server to another Oracle server using Data Protection for Oracle, be aware of the following tdpo_node considerations: v The value of the tdpo_node option in the tdpo.opt file on the target Oracle server must equal the value of the tdpo_node option in the tdpo.opt file on the source Oracle server. v If passwordaccess prompt is specified for the backup, then passwordaccess prompt must be specified for the restore. For example, if passwordaccess prompt is specified in the dsm.sys file on the target Oracle server, run the tdpoconf password command to create the password locally on the source Oracle server. v If passwordaccess generate is specified for the backup, then passwordaccess generate must be specified for the restore. Be aware that if the password for the Data Protection for Oracle node is unknown (due to the passwordaccess generate setting), you can reset the password for the production node on the Tivoli Storage Manager server. Then, after the password is reset, use the new password to run the tdpoconf password command on both the production machine (to set the password for the next backup) and the alternate machine (to set the password for the restore). v Data Protection for Oracle and the Tivoli Storage Manager API must be at the same levels on both the source Oracle server and the target Oracle server.

tdpo_date_fmt This option specifies the format you want to use to display dates. You can specify a number between 0 and 5 inclusively. The default value is 1. 0 Use the locale-specified date format. 1 MM/DD/YYYY (Default) 2 DD-MM-YYYY 3 YYYY-MM-DD 4 DD.MM.YYYY 5 YYYY.MM.DD tdpo_num_fmt This option specifies the format you want to use to display numbers. You can specify a number between 1 and 6 inclusively. The default value is 1. 1 1,000.00 (Default) 2 3 4 5 6 1,000,00 1 000,00 1 000.00 1.000,00 1000,00

tdpo_time_fmt This option specifies the format you want to use to display time. You can specify a number between 0 and 4 inclusively. The default value is 1. 0 Use the locale-specified time format. 1 23:00:00 (Default) 2 23,00,00 3 23.00.00 4 12:00:00 A/P tdpo_mgmt_class_2 This option specifies the second management class used for copy 2 in the RMAN duplex copy command. tdpo_mgmt_class_3 This option specifies the third management class used for copy 3 in the RMAN duplex copy command. tdpo_mgmt_class_4 This option specifies the fourth management class used for copy 4 in the RMAN duplex copy command. Four copies is the maximum allowed by RMAN. Note: It is recommended that you review Using the Duplex Copy function on page 52 for specific details on using management class options.

2. Register the Data Protection for Oracle node to a Tivoli Storage Manager server
The Data Protection for Oracle node name and password (if required) must be registered to the Tivoli Storage Manager server before you can begin requesting backup and restore services. The process of setting up a node name and password with the Tivoli Storage Manager server is called registration. The following information is needed to register Data Protection for Oracle with the Tivoli Storage Manager server: v The Data Protection for Oracle node name This is the node name that identifies the instance on which Data Protection for Oracle is installed. It is recommended that you use a separate and unique node name for Data Protection for Oracle. This prevents any confusion with an existing Tivoli Storage Manager backup-archive client on the same workstation. v The initial password This is the password you want to use, if a password is required. The following information is defined by the Tivoli Storage Manager administrator: v The policy domain to which your client node belongs. A policy domain contains policy sets and management classes that control how Tivoli Storage Manager manages the objects you back up. Rather than binding Data Protection for Oracle backups to a different management class, it is recommended that a unique policy domain be defined for Data Protection for Oracle node names. These backups can be bound to the default management class within this unique policy domain. Rather than binding a different management class for Oracle backups, it is also recommended that you specify a different domain for Oracle backups with a separate management class. v The authority to enable compression. The Tivoli Storage Manager administrator can specify the server to compress files. If the Tivoli Storage Manager administrator specifies that the compression decision belongs to the client (compression client), you must specify compression yes in the client system options file (dsm.sys) in order for the Data Protection for Oracle node to be able to compress objects before sending them to the Tivoli Storage Manager server. v The authority to delete backup data from Tivoli Storage Manager storage. The Data Protection for Oracle node can only delete backed up data from Tivoli Storage Manager storage if the Tivoli Storage Manager administrator registers the node with backdelete authority. Specify the following option to allow backdelete authority: backdelete yes Note that when backdelete no is specified, the backed up object is marked as inactive and is removed from the Tivoli Storage Manager server based on the backretention setting associated with the copy group. Data Protection for Oracle cannot restore objects that are marked as inactive. Therefore, by specifying backdelete yes, the object is immediately removed from the Tivoli Storage Manager server when the next inventory expiration occurs. This expiration also makes the previously used storage space available for new use.

3. Define Tivoli Storage Manager options in the dsm.opt and dsm.sys files
You must define some Tivoli Storage Manager options after the Data Protection for Oracle node is registered to the Tivoli Storage Manager server: v These options are defined in the Tivoli Storage Manager client system options file (dsm.sys by default) and client user options file (dsm.opt by default). v Note that the Tivoli Storage Manager client user options file (dsm.opt by default) you must edit for Data Protection for Oracle is located in the directory specified by the dsmi_orc_config option. If this option is not specified, Data Protection for Oracle looks for this options file in the Data Protection for Oracle installation directory. v The Tivoli Storage Manager client system options file (dsm.sys by default) must be located in the directory where the Tivoli Storage Manager API is installed. v Data Protection for Oracle provides sample Tivoli Storage Manager options files that you can modify for this purpose. These sample files are located in the Data Protection for Oracle installation directory. v The Tivoli Storage Manager administrator can provide you with the TCP server address (tcpserveraddress) and communication method (commmethod) for connecting Data Protection for Oracle to the Tivoli Storage Manager server.

Required options
Specify these options in the Tivoli Storage Manager client system options file (dsm.sys by default) located in the directory where the Tivoli Storage Manager API is installed: | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | generate The Tivoli Storage Manager API manages all password actions after the password is created using the tdpoconf password command. The Tivoli Storage Manager API stores and manages the password and automatically generates a new password when the current password expires. This method of password management is useful when running unattended scheduled backups because it passwordaccess Specify whether you want to generate your password automatically or be prompted to enter your password. You can specify one of the following values: prompt You are prompted to enter your password during each session. This is the default value. When specifying passwordaccess prompt in the dsm.sys file, set the following values in the tdpo.opt file:
tdpo_node <node name> tdpo_owner <tdpo owner name> tdpo_pswdpath (optional) <path to password file>

After specifying these values, use the tdpoconf password command (as root user) to create the password and password file (TDPO.nodename) on the local machine. Be aware that when passwordaccess prompt is specified, the user must be aware of the password expiration date. A backup failure may occur if the password is allowed to expire. To allow the Tivoli Storage Manager API to manage the password, specify passwordaccess generate.

44

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |

ensures that the backup never fails due to an expired password. When specifying passwordaccess generate, set the following values in the in the dsm.sys file:
passwordaccess generate passworddir <directory owned and writable by Oracle owner> nodename <node name>

However, do NOT specify the following options in the tdpo.opt file when specifying passwordaccess generate: v tdpo_node v tdpo_owner v tdpo_pswdpath After specifying passwordaccess generate and the other appropriate values in the dsm.sys file, run the tdpoconf password command (as the Oracle user) to create the encrypted password in the TSM.PWD file. servername Specify the name you want to use to identify a stanza that contains the options used for connecting to the Tivoli Storage Manager server. Although the name does not have to be the actual name of a Tivoli Storage Manager server, the name must match the name specified by the servername option in the dsm.opt file. tcpserveraddress Specify the TCP/IP address (in the stanza) for the Tivoli Storage Manager server to be used for Oracle backups. commmethod Specify the communication method for Data Protection for Oracle to communicate with the Tivoli Storage Manager server. Note that this option requires other Tivoli Storage Manager options, depending on the communication method you specify. Specify this option in the Tivoli Storage Manager client user options file (dsm.opt by default) located in the directory specified by the dsmi_orc_config option:

| | | |

servername Specify a Tivoli Storage Manager server stanza name that matches the name specified by the servername option in your client system options file (dsm.sys by default) that is used to contact Data Protection for Oracle for backup services.

Other options to consider


It is recommended that you specify these options in the Tivoli Storage Manager client system options file, dsm.sys: compression Specify whether the Tivoli Storage Manager API compresses data before sending it to the Tivoli Storage Manager server. You can specify on or off. The default value is on. The value of the compression option for Data Protection for Oracle is honored only if the Tivoli Storage Manager administrator leaves the compression decision to the node. Enabling compression affects performance in three ways:

Chapter 3. Configuring Data Protection for Oracle

45

v CPU utilization is higher on the machine on which Data Protection for Oracle is running. v Network bandwidth utilization is lower because fewer bytes are transmitted. v Storage usage on the Tivoli Storage Manager server is reduced. Considerations: It is recommended that you specify on when any of the following conditions exist: v The network adapter has a data overload. v Communications between Data Protection for Oracle and the Tivoli Storage Manager server are over a low bandwidth connection. v There is heavy network traffic. It is recommended that you specify off when any of the following conditions exist: v The machine running Data Protection for Oracle has a CPU overload. The added CPU usage (as a result of enabling compression) can impact other applications, including the Oracle server. v You are not constrained by network bandwidth. In this case, you can achieve the best performance by specifying compression off and enabling hardware compaction on the tape drive, which also reduces storage requirements. v Hardware compression is in use for the media where Data Protection for Oracle data resides. Note: The compression option also accepts these values to signify ON: true or yes. These values are also accepted to signify OFF: false or no. enablelanfree Specify whether you run backup operations in a LAN-free environment if you are equipped to do so. You can specify yes or no. The default value is no. You can avoid network constraints by shifting the movement of data to a storage area network (SAN). For more information, see the appropriate Storage Agent Users Guide. include Add an include statement to the dsm.sys file (used by the Oracle node) when a management class (other than the default management class) is defined within an existing policy domain. This include statement binds the Oracle backup objects to the management class that is defined for managing these objects. The include statement uses the following naming convention:
/FilespaceName//ObjectName

| |

The FORMAT parameter in the RMAN script can also be used to assist with object naming. For example, if the FORMAT parameters (in the RMAN script) specified the following values for databases and logs:
format DB_%u_%p_%c format LOG_%u_%p_%c

The include statement in the dsm.sys file (used by the Oracle node) would be as follows:
INCLUDE /adsmorc/.../DB* mgmtclassnameforDBs INCLUDE /adsmorc/.../LOG* mgmtclassnameforLogs

46

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and Users Guide

enableclientencryptkey When enableclientencryptkey is set to yes, Data Protection for Oracle provides 128-bit transparent encryption of Oracle databases during backup and restore processing. One random encryption key is generated per session and is stored on the Tivoli Storage Manager server with the object in the server database. Although Tivoli Storage Manager manages the key, a valid database must be available in order to restore an encrypted object. You can specify the databases you want encrypted by adding an include statement with the include.encrypt option in the dsm.sys file. | | | | | | | | | | | For example, to enable transparent encryption, set the following options in the client system options file, dsm.sys: 1. Specify enableclientencryptkey yes. 2. Specify encryptiontype AES128 (recommended) or DES56. 3. Specify the objects to encrypt. This example encrypts all data:
include.encrypt /adsmorc/.../*

Thus, the encryption options in this client system options file, dsm.sys would be as follows:
enableclientencryptkey yes encryptiontype aes128 include.encrypt /adsmorc/.../*

See IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Using the Application Program Interface for more details regarding the enableclientencryptkey option.

4. Define Tivoli Storage Manager policy requirements


RMAN uses the format parameter (in the RMAN script) to generate unique backup file names. Because all backup objects inserted into the Tivoli Storage Manager backup storage pool have unique file names, they never expire on the Tivoli Storage Manager server. As a result, Data Protection for Oracle requires these special Tivoli Storage Manager policy domain settings: Backup copy group values Data Protection for Oracle provides the tdposync utility to remove unwanted backup objects from the Tivoli Storage Manager server. It is recommended that the following Tivoli Storage Manager backup copy group options be set: v verdeleted 0 v retonly 0 Then, when Data Protection for Oracle marks a backup object inactive, that object is deleted from the Tivoli Storage Manager server the next time expiration processing occurs. A backup object is marked for immediate expiration when you delete it through RMAN using the Data Protection for Oracle interface or with the tdposync utility. Note that an inactive backup object cannot be restored through RMAN using the Data Protection for Oracle interface. | | | | | | Notes: 1. The Tivoli Storage Manager administrator must also register your node by specifying backdelete yes in order for backup objects to be deleted. However, be aware that a backup object is marked for immediate expiration when backdelete yes and you delete it through RMAN using the Data Protection for Oracle interface or with the tdposync utility. Also note that even when backdelete no is specified, the object is
Chapter 3. Configuring Data Protection for Oracle

47

| | |

marked inactive. The verdeleted 0 and retonly 0 settings will remove these inactive objects from the Tivoli Storage Manager server when the next inventory expiration occurs. 2. The following backup copy group options are not applicable to Data Protection for Oracle: v frequency v verexists v retextra v mode v serialization Data Protection for Oracle accepts default values for these options. Management class Tivoli Storage Manager uses management classes to manage backups on the Tivoli Storage Manager server. When you back up a database, the default management class for your node is used. Because the policy requirements for Data Protection for Oracle may be different from the desired settings for the regular Tivoli Storage Manager backup-archive clients, you must have a different management class defined for Data Protection for Oracle. It is recommended that you define a separate policy domain where the default management class has the required settings and then register all Data Protection for Oracle nodes to that domain. If you choose to define a new management class within an existing policy domain (not the default management class for that domain), then you must add an include statement to the Data Protection for Oracle options file to bind all objects to that management class. The following steps assign a management class name orcbackup to all Oracle backups with a default file space name adsmorc: 1. Add this inclexcl entry under the server stanza you use in the dsm.sys file:
inclexcl /u01/oracle/include.def

2. Add this include entry to the /u01/oracle/include.def file:


include /adsmorc/.../* orcbackup

Note: The file space name in the include/exclude statement must match the file space name defined with the tdpo_fs option. If a file space name other than the default value (adsmorc) is used: a. You must specify the file space name with the tdpo_fs option. b. You must specify the file space name defined in the tdpo_fs option in the include/exclude statement. All the files backed up with a default file space name of adsmorc are assigned to management class orcbackup. Note: Data Protection for Oracle stores all objects as backup objects on Tivoli Storage Manager storage, so an archive copy group is not required, although it can exist. See your Tivoli Storage Manager administrator or see the Tivoli Storage Manager Administrators Guide for more information on defining or updating Tivoli Storage Manager policy domains and copy groups.

5. Initialize the password with a Tivoli Storage Manager server


The administrator must run the tdpoconf utility program to set the password before using Data Protection for Oracle. See TDPOCONF on page 56 for more information.

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and Users Guide

Chapter 4. Using RMAN and Data Protection for Oracle


You can perform full or partial, offline or online backups with Oracle. Once you identify which database to back up, Oracle locates all necessary files and sends them to the Tivoli Storage Manager server through Data Protection for Oracle. As a result, Data Protection for Oracle provides an interface between Oracle Media Management API calls and Tivoli Storage Manager API routines.

Invoking RMAN
Invoke RMAN to back up and restore an Oracle database. In this example, the catalog database contains a registered target database. Invoke RMAN with this command:
$> rman target xxx/yyy@target rcvcat aaa/bbb@catalog cmdfile bkdb.scr msglog bkdb.log

This starts RMAN in the sequence shown.


target xxx/yyy@target: connect to target database using user xxx and password yyy with connect string target rcvcat aaa/bbb@catalog: connect to catalog database using user aaa and password bbb with connect string catalog cmdfile bkdb.scr: run bkdb.scr script msglog bkdb.log: log the output messages in bkdb.log

Note: In the above example, RMAN creates a log file (bkdb.log) in the current working directory. If an error occurs, you will see the error stack in the log file. Attention: For backup and restore operations in a Linux environment, Oracle recommends that the Oracle LD_ASSUME_KERNEL variable be set for the Oracle user. For example:
LD_ASSUME_KERNEL=2.4.21; export LD_ASSUME_KERNEL

Scripts
Data Protection for Oracle does not recognize environment variables specified in an RMAN script. The only environment variable Data Protection for Oracle Version 5.4.1 recognizes within an RMAN script is the fully qualified path name to the tdpo.opt file. Therefore, existing RMAN scripts may need to be edited to use TDPO_OPTFILE=fully qualified path and file name of options file variable in place of other environment variables. The TDPO_OPTFILE variable must be specified in upper case characters only.

Example
This backup script allocates two parallel connections to the Tivoli Storage Manager server. The Tivoli Storage Manager server views these connections as two separate sessions:
run { allocate channel t1 type sbt_tape parms ENV=(TDPO_OPTFILE=/ora91/scripts/tdpo.opt); allocate channel t2 type sbt_tape parms ENV=(TDPO_OPTFILE=/ora91/scripts/tdpo.opt); backup filesperset 5 format df_%t_%s_%p (database); }

Note: To back up to Tivoli Storage Manager using Data Protection for Oracle, you must specify type sbt_tape in the RMAN script or within the global RMAN configuration settings. This restore script allocates one parallel connection to the Tivoli Storage Manager server:
run { allocate channel t1 type sbt_tape parms ENV=(TDPO_OPTFILE=/home/oracle/tdpo.opt); restore database; recover database; alter database open; }

Notes: 1. The allocate channel entry is divided on two lines after the parms option to accommodate page formatting. 2. The Oracle database must be in mount mode for the restore to succeed.

Using the Duplex Copy function


Data Protection for Oracle supports the Oracle Server Duplex backup feature. This feature allows you to make up to four exact duplicate copies of a backup that can be stored on different backup media. A different management class is required for each backup copy. By default, the primary management class is the default management class on the policy domain defined for the Data Protection for Oracle node. Note: It may be necessary to define the Oracle parameter value (BACKUP_TAPE_IO_SLAVES=TRUE) in the init.ora file of the target database for Data Protection for Oracle to use the duplex copy feature. Refer to your Oracle documentation regarding the use of this Oracle parameter. For example, to create four backup copies: 1. Specify the following option in the RMAN backup script:
set duplex 4

2. Define the following options in the tdpo.opt file: v tdpo_mgmt_class_2 v tdpo_mgmt_class_3 v tdpo_mgmt_class_4

52

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and Users Guide

3. Run the RMAN backup script. The following backup behavior occurs: v The first backup copy is bound to the default management class to which the node is registered. v The second backup copy is bound to the management class defined by the tdpo_mgmt_class_2 option. v The third backup copy is bound to the management class defined by the tdpo_mgmt_class_3 option. v The fourth backup copy is bound to the management class defined by the tdpo_mgmt_class_4 option. Considerations The duplex copy feature does not use include statements. It only uses the management classes specified in the tdpo.opt file. You will receive an error message if you specify set duplex 4 in the RMAN backup script and do not define a sufficient number of tdpo_mgmt_class options in the tdpo.opt file. In order to place duplicate copies on different media: Make sure the storage pool information for each backup copy group within the management classes is not the same. Make sure backups from these different storage pools are not migrated to the same storage pool at a later time. Be aware that duplicate data will be sent across the network. Be aware that if you specify set duplex 4 and allocate one channel in the RMAN backup script, RMAN will start four sessions to the Tivoli Storage Manager server. Likewise, if you specify set duplex 4 and allocate two channels in the RMAN backup script, RMAN will start eight sessions to the Tivoli Storage Manager server. The duplex copy feature sends the backup copies simultaneously. If the backup destination is tape, the number of sessions will be multiples of the duplex value. As a result, make sure RMAN does not start more sessions than the maximum mount points allowed by the Tivoli Storage Manager server. The node definition option on the Tivoli Storage Manager server (maxnummp) determines the maximum number of mount points a client node is allowed to use on the Tivoli Storage Manager server during a backup operation. You can view the maximum mount points allowed by the Tivoli Storage Manager server for a particular node by entering the query node command from a Tivoli Storage Manager Administrative Client prompt:
q node f=d

See the appropriate Tivoli Storage Manager Administrators Reference for more information regarding this option. It is highly recommended that you review your current Oracle documentation regarding the duplex backup function.

Chapter 4. Using RMAN and Data Protection for Oracle

Removing old backups


Data Protection for Oracle uses the Tivoli Storage Manager backup repository. Each database backup creates a new object with a unique name. Since these objects have unique names, they always remain active and never expire. This allows the Database Administrator (DBA) to control and coordinate copies removed from the Tivoli Storage Manager server with RMAN. Note: Make sure to use the same tdpo.opt file that was used for the original backup. This enables the backup objects to be found on the Tivoli Storage Manager server.

Example
To remove an old backup, issue this command from the RMAN prompt:
run { allocate channel for delete type sbt_tape parms ENV=(TDPO_OPTFILE=/orc91/scripts/tdpo.opt); change backupset backupset number delete; }

See the Oracle RMAN manual for more information on the change command and its options.

Management class options affecting object removal


| | | | | | | | | | | | | | The Tivoli Storage Manager administrator must specify backdelete=yes when registering your node in order for you to be able to delete backup objects. You can use parameters in the management class definition to control when the inactive object expires on the Tivoli Storage Manager server. For the backup copy group, use: v verdeleted=0 v retonly=0 These settings erase the inactive objects from the server after the next inventory expiration. However, be aware that a backup object is marked for immediate expiration when backdelete=yes and you delete it through RMAN using the Data Protection for Oracle interface or with the tdposync utility. Also note that even when backdelete=no is specified, the object is marked inactive. The verdeleted=0 and retonly=0 settings will remove these inactive objects from the Tivoli Storage Manager server when the next inventory expiration occurs.

Chapter 5. Using the utilities


This chapter describes how to use the Data Protection for Oracle utilities (tdpoconf and tdposync) from the command line interface. These utilities are located in the directory where Data Protection for Oracle is installed. v The tdpoconf utility is used for password maintenance and general Data Protection for Oracle setup and maintenance. v The tdposync utility is used to delete the Oracle backups on the Tivoli Storage Manager server which are not in the RMAN catalog. This occurs when backups have inadvertently not been deleted from the Tivoli Storage Manager server.

Command line syntax and characteristics


The Data Protection for Oracle utilities use the following command line syntax:
tdpoconf <command> <0 or more optional parameters> tdposync <command> <0 or more optional parameters>

The command line parameters have the following characteristics: v Minimum abbreviations for keywords are indicated in upper case. v Optional parameters begin with a dash (-). v Optional parameters can appear in any order. v Some keyword parameters require a value separated by the equal sign (=). v If a parameter requires more than one value, the values are separated with commas. v A space separates the invocation from the command and the command from any optional parameters. v Each parameter is separated from others by a space. v If a parameter value includes spaces, the entire parameter must be enclosed in double quotes.

TDPOCONF
This utility provides setup tasks to ease the configuration of Data Protection for Oracle. The utility uses the tdpo.opt file in the installation directory to centralize information for setup purposes. Two commands are available using the tdpoconf utility: v PASSWord v SHOWENVironment A description of these two commands and their parameters follows.

Password command
Use the password command to create a new password or change an existing password on the Tivoli Storage Manager server. You are prompted to enter both the old and new passwords when you invoke this utility. | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | Be aware of the following requirements based on the value of the passwordaccess setting in the dsm.sys file: passwordaccess prompt Run the tdpoconf password command as the root user. This command creates an encrypted password file, TDPO.Nodename. The Nodename value will be the value specified by the tdpo_node option in the Data Protection for Oracle options file specified with the TDPO_OPTFILE variable. This file is located in the directory specified by the tdpo_pswdpath option. If the tdpo_pswdpath option is not specified, the TDPO.Nodename file is placed in the Data Protection for Oracle installation directory. Make sure that the TDPO.Nodename file can be read by the Oracle user that performs the backup. passwordaccess generate Run the tdpoconf password command as the Oracle user. The password is placed in the file, TSM.PWD, and is owned by the Oracle user. This TSM.PWD file is created in the directory specified by the passworddir option defined in the dsm.sys file. Do not specify the tdpo_node option in the tdpo.opt file. Data Protection for Oracle uses the value of the nodename option specified in the dsm.sys file.

Syntax
TDPOCONF PASSWord installed tdpo.opt -TDPO_OPTFILE= pathname

Optional parameters
-TDPO_OPTFILE=pathname This parameter specifies the fully qualified path name to the tdpo.opt file. If you choose not to specify this option, the default path is used.

Showenvironment command
Use the showenvironment command to query the Tivoli Storage Manager server using the options set in TDPO_OPTFILE, the tdpo.opt file in the default installation directory, or the default values set by Data Protection for Oracle. The screen output displays information about the Tivoli Storage Manager API and Tivoli Storage Manager server. This command is useful when troubleshooting Data Protection for Oracle setup. If, for example, the password file is not initialized properly, tdpoconf showenvironment reports this error immediately and prevents complications that can arise if this error were to go undetected. Note: For initial setup, it is recommended that you direct the output to a file with the outfile option to ensure that the desired environment is set correctly before using RMAN.

Syntax
TDPOCONF SHOWENVironment installed tdpo.opt -TDPO_OPTFILE= pathname

-OUTfile= pathname

Optional parameters
-TDPO_OPTFILE=pathname This parameter specifies the fully qualified path name to the tdpo.opt file. This is the options file that is used by the utilities and the Data Protection for Oracle library. -OUTfile=pathname This parameter specifies the fully qualified path name to the output file. The formatted text of this file is the same content that appears as output to the screen.

Note: The Server Name: value above identifies the Tivoli Storage Manager server stanza in the dsm.sys file, not the actual name of the Tivoli Storage Manager server.

TDPOSYNC
Attention: Deleted files and inactive files cannot be restored! When using this utility to delete files, ensure that you do not log on under the wrong node name, query a different database than intended, and delete files in error. Double-check the node name listed at the top of the PICK window. See Optional parameters on page 60 and PICK Window on page 61 for further details. The tdposync utility checks for items on the Tivoli Storage Manager server that are not in the RMAN catalog. This utility allows you to repair such discrepancies between the Tivoli Storage Manager server and the RMAN catalog. By thus removing unwanted objects in Tivoli Storage Manager storage, you can reclaim space on the server. When an RMAN deletion script is run, RMAN deletes entries in the recovery catalog before confirmation from the Tivoli Storage Manager server. In cases where objects are not found on the Tivoli Storage Manager server, RMAN tries to delete backup sets from the Tivoli Storage Manager server and fails. However, the entries in the RMAN catalog for these objects are still removed. When this happens, RMAN can no longer identify these backups through the catalog even though the file still exists on the Tivoli Storage Manager server. This utility therefore synchronizes the contents of the servers. | | | | | | Be aware that when the RMAN catalog contains backups marked as expired, RMAN still considers these objects as existing. If tdposync is invoked against these objects, it will recognize these objects in the RMAN catalog and on the Tivoli Storage Manager server and consider them to be in sync. Therefore, it is necssary to delete these objects from the RMAN catalog in order for them to be deleted from the Tivoli Storage Manager server. Use the Oracle crosscheck command to

58

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and Users Guide

| |

verify whether the backups exist. Then, use the Oracle delete expired command to remove their record from the RMAN catalog. When you invoke tdposync, the utility does the following: 1. Prompts you for information 2. Gathers information for the Oracle server(s) 3. Queries the Oracle backup catalog and the Tivoli Storage Manager server 4. Displays formatted output to the screen (files that exist on Tivoli Storage Manager but not in the RMAN catalog) 5. Prompts you to do one of the following: v Delete any files found causing the discrepancy. v Delete all files. v Exit the program without deleting files from the Tivoli Storage Manager server.

Considerations
The following information must be considered before using the tdposync command: v Resynchronize Oracle catalogs with the target databases before running the tdposync syncdb command. First, connect to the target database and the catalog database. The following is an example:
$ rman target xxx/yyy@targetdb rcvcat xxx/yyy@catalogdb

When you are connected to both databases, type resync catalog at the RMAN prompt. v If the information for sqlplus that you provide to tdposync is incorrect (such as logon, password, or connect string information), sqlplus stops at its logon screen. You will need to log on again at the prompt using the following:
login/password@connectstring

where connectstring represents the Oracle database in which to connect. When you enter the correct input, tdposync proceeds correctly. v By default, Data Protection for Oracle prompts you to synchronize with one Oracle catalog at a time. However, if you use multiple Oracle catalogs to back up multiple target databases to the same file space, the same node name, and the same owner name on the same Tivoli Storage Manager server, you must use numcatalogs=number. This is necessary so that tdposync has all the information to correctly query both Oracle and Tivoli Storage Manager. If, for example, you back up only one target database using two catalogs, you do not need to specify this option. However, if you back up two target databases using two catalogs (one catalog for each) to the same Tivoli Storage Manager server under the same file space, node name, and owner name, you must specify numcatalogs. If you fail to provide information for the second target database (by not specifying two catalogs), that database will be displayed as eligible for deletion.For more information , see Optional parameters on page 60. Attention: Failure to provide all pertinent and correct information can result in erroneous output. To prevent this, see the next consideration. v If you have more than one Oracle database, back up each Oracle target database to its own file space on the Tivoli Storage Manager server. To do this, use the tdpo_fs option in the tdpo.opt file. In addition, it is highly recommended that you use a separate Data Protection for Oracle options file for each database that you back up to Tivoli Storage Manager. In this way, it is only necessary to synchronize one catalog at a time (once for each target database), thus minimizing the display of wrong information in the PICK window.
Chapter 5. Using the utilities

59

v Make sure to use the same tdpo.opt file that was used for the original backup.

Syncdb Command
This is the only command available to tdposync utility.

Syntax
TDPOSYNC syncdb installed tdpo.opt -TDPO_OPTFILE= pathname

1 -NUMCATalogs= number

Optional parameters
-TDPO_OPTFILE=pathname This parameter specifies the fully qualified path name to the tdpo.opt file. This is the options file that is used by the utilities and the Data Protection for Oracle library. This file contains the information for the Tivoli Storage Manager server name and address that tdposync needs for synchronizing. Note: For syncdb TDPO_OPTFILE, you must specify the same options file values that were used to perform the original backup operations. -NUMCATalogs=number This parameter specifies the number of Oracle catalog databases that you want to synchronize and prompts you for information for each catalog that exists on your node. Specify this option only when you use multiple Oracle catalogs to back up multiple target databases to the same Tivoli Storage Manager server under the same file space, node name, and owner name. According to the number you specify for -numcatalogs, you are prompted for the user name, password, and connect string for each. If you do not specify -numcatalogs, the default is 1, and you are prompted only once. For each catalog, you are prompted for the following information: v Catalog # User Name: v Catalog # Password: v Catalog # Connect String: You are also prompted for the following date information to narrow your search: v From Date: (MM/DD/YYYY) v To Date: (MM/DD/YYYY) If no dates are specified, Data Protection for Oracle displays all objects that are not in sync.

60

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and Users Guide

Example
This is an output example of the tdposync syncdb command:
Catalog 1 User Name: rman Catalog 1 Password: rman Catalog 1 Connect String: rman From Date (MM/DD/YYYY): 01/01/2007 To Date (MM/DD/YYYY): 01/11/2007

PICK Window
The PICK window provides the following useful information to help you decide if the files displayed are indeed out of synchronization with the Oracle catalog: v The node with which you are querying the Tivoli Storage Manager server v The date of the file backup v The size of the backup v The backup name (/fs//backup file name) Attention: Use caution when selecting files for deletion. If you are unsure that the files in question are really out of synchronization, do further research before deleting them. Once you delete files, they cannot be restored. Example: This is an example output of the PICK window:

Appendix B. Using the Tivoli Storage Manager scheduler


This section describes how to use the Tivoli Storage Manager scheduler with Data Protection for Oracle to automate online backups of Oracle server databases. The example illustrates the use of the Tivoli Storage Manager Version 5.4 backup-archive client scheduler. Considerations The Tivoli Storage Manager backuparchive client must reside on the same machine as Data Protection for Oracle for the Tivoli Storage Manager scheduler to function. After Data Protection for Oracle has been registered to a Tivoli Storage Manager server and installed on the Oracle server, perform these steps: 1. On the Tivoli Storage Manager server: a. Define a schedule to run an AIX, HP-UX, Linux, or Solaris scheduler backup script (schedbkdb.scr) in the policy domain to which Data Protection for Oracle is registered. b. Associate the Data Protection for Oracle node to the defined schedule. 2. On the machine where Data Protection for Oracle is installed: a. Create a single dsm.sys file from which to associate nodes for your client, Data Protection for Oracle, and scheduled backups. b. Create the scheduler backup script (schedbkdb.scr). This is the script that the Tivoli Storage Manager scheduler invokes directly. c. Create a command script (mysched.scr). This is the script that contains the Oracle environment information and invokes the RMAN backup script. d. Create the RMAN backup script (bkdb.scr). This is the script that actually performs the Oracle RMAN backup. e. Start the scheduler.

| | |

| | | | | |

Setting up a schedule
For consistency, this procedure uses specific information. However, you can define a command file with any set of commands you choose. This allows you to use the same command file to define schedules on other Tivoli Storage Manager servers. All command information is presented as command-line interface entries. This schedule in this procedure contains the following settings: v The Data Protection for Oracle node name is NodeA1. v The password for node name NodeA1 is PasswordA1. v The policy domain to which node name NodeA1 is registered is PolicyA1. v The schedule is a daily backup of an online Oracle database. v The scheduled backup begins between 9:00 and 9:15 PM.

Copyright IBM Corp. 1997, 2007

65

Part I: On the Tivoli Storage Manager server


1. Define the following schedule on the Tivoli Storage Manager server. You can enter the command on the Tivoli Storage Manager server console or on an Administrative Client. The Administrative Client does not have to be running on the same system as the Tivoli Storage Manager server.
define schedule PolicyA1 daily_orcbkup description="08Daily Online DB Backup" action=command objects="/usr/tivoli/tsm/client/oracle/sched/schedbkdb.scr" starttime=21:00 duration=15 durunits=minutes period=1 perunits=day dayofweek=any

The following message must display before proceeding to Step 2:


ANR2500I Schedule daily_orcbkup defined in policy domain PolicyA1.

2. Issue the following command to associate the Data Protection for Oracle node to the backup schedule defined in Step 1:
define association PolicyA1 daily_orcbkup NodeA1

The following message must display before proceeding to Part II:


ANR2510I Node NodeA1 associated with schedule orc_dailybkup in policy domain PolicyA1.

Summary: v A backup schedule is now defined on the Tivoli Storage Manager server. v The backup schedule will run the scheduler backup script (schedbkdb.scr), which will run the command script (mysched.scr), which will run the RMAN backup script (bkdb.scr) located in the /home/oracle/sched directory. v The backup is performed once a day around 9:00 PM. v The backup schedule can start on any day of the week. v You can run the Tivoli Storage Manager query schedule and query association commands to confirm that the schedule and node association are set correctly.

Part II: On the client machine (NodeA1)


| | | This example assumes: v The Tivoli Storage Manager backup-archive client is installed on NodeA1 in the /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin directory. v Data Protection for Oracle is installed on NodeA1 in the /usr/tivoli/tsm/ client/oracle/bin64 directory. v An AIX operating system is used. It is recommended that the password expiration for the Data Protection for Oracle node (NodeA1) be set to not expire. Otherwise the password will become out of sync between Data Protection for Oracle and the scheduler. This can be done by specifying passwordaccess generate. However, if passwordaccess prompt is already specified, you can prevent password expiration by issuing the following command:
update node NodeA1 passexp=0

| | | | | |

Scheduling Data Protection for Oracle backups with the Tivoli Storage Manager scheduler requires special configuration issues to be addressed. This procedure addresses this issue by creating a dsm.sys file from which to associate nodes for your client, Data Protection for Oracle, and scheduled backups: 1. Create a dsm.sys file in the /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin directory (if one does not already exist) and add the following servername stanzas:

66

IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and Users Guide

| | | | | | | | |

a. Add a servername stanza for the file system backups associated with your Tivoli Storage Manager backup-archive client. For example:
servername TSMbackup commmethod tcpip tcpserveraddress site.xyzinc.com tcpport 1500 nodename client passwordaccess generate

| | | | | | | | | | |

The servername TSMbackup setting must be specified in the dsm.opt file associated with the Tivoli Storage Manager backup-archive client. The default directory location is /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin. b. Add a servername stanza for the backups associated with Data Protection for Oracle. For example:
servername TSMOracle commmethod tcpip tcpserveraddress site.xyzinc.com tcpport 1500 nodename NodeA1 passwordaccess generate passworddir /home/<oracle user>

Replace <oracle user> with the Oracle User ID of the target Oracle database instance.The servername TSMOracle setting must be specified in the dsm.opt file associated with Data Protection for Oracle. The default directory location is /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/oracle/bin64. This dsm.opt file can have a unique name, such as dsmoracle.opt. Make sure the dsmi_orc_config option specifies the user options file (dsmoracle.opt in Step 1b) associated with Data Protection for Oracle. For example:
dsmi_orc_config /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/oracle/bin64/dsmoracle.opt

| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |

c. Add a servername stanza for the scheduled backups associated with Data Protection for Oracle. For example:
servername DPSched commmethod tcpip tcpserveraddress site.xyzinc.com tcpport 1500 nodename NodeA1 passwordaccess generate passworddir /home/<oracle user>

Replace <oracle user> with the Oracle User ID of the target Oracle database instance. 2. Make sure there is a symbolic link to this dsm.sys file so that the file is available to the Tivoli Storage Manager API directory (/usr/tivoli/tsm/ client/api/bin64). 3. Create the scheduler backup script (schedbkdb.scr) in the /usr/tivoli/tsm/ client/oracle/sched/ directory. This is the scheduler backup script that was defined for the scheduler in Step 1 in Part I: On the Tivoli Storage Manager server on page 66. This scheduler backup script will run the command script (mysched.scr), which will run the RMAN backup script (bkdb.scr). This is an example of the scheduler backup script (schedbkdb.scr):
#!/bin/ksh su - OracleUser -c /home/oracle/sched/mysched.scr

4. Create the command script (mysched.scr) in the /home/oracle/sched/ directory. This is an example of the command script (mysched.scr):
#!/bin/ksh export ORACLE_HOME=/orc91/app/oracle/product/912 export PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$PATH rman target agnttest/agnttest@target rcvcat rman/rman@rman cmdfile /home/oracle/sched/bkdb.scr msglog /home/oracle/sched/bkdb.log

You must place the command text, rman target agnttest/agnttest@target rcvcat rman/rman@rman and cmdfile /home/oracle/sched/bkdb.scr msglog /home/oracle/sched/bkdb.log, on the same line in this command script. The command text is placed on two lines in this example to accommodate page formatting. 5. Create the RMAN backup script (bkdb.scr) in the /home/oracle/sched/ directory. This is an example of the RMAN backup script (bkdb.scr):
run { allocate channel t1 type sbt_tape parms ENV=(TDPO_OPTFILE=/home/oracle/sched/tdpo.opt); allocate channel t2 type sbt_tape parms ENV=(TDPO_OPTFILE=/home/oracle/sched/tdpo.opt); backup format df_%t_%s_%p_%u_%c (database); }

6. Login as the root user to the machine where Data Protection for Oracle is installed as node name NodeA1. 7. Start the scheduler in the inittab. Use the servername parameter to specify the correct stanza to use in the dsm.sys file:
dsmc sched -servername=DPSched

Data Protection for Oracle is now enabled for scheduled backups.

Appendix C. Support information


If you have a problem with your IBM software, you want to resolve it quickly. This section describes the following options for obtaining support for IBM software products: v What to do when you encounter a problem v v v v Searching knowledge bases on page 71 Obtaining fixes on page 71 Receiving weekly support updates on page 72 Contacting IBM Software Support on page 72

What to do when you encounter a problem


If you encounter a problem while using Data Protection for Oracle or if you cannot start Data Protection for Oracle, do the following: 1. Run the tdpoconf utility showenvironment command to collect information on your options file (TDPO_OPTFILE=) and specified output files (outfile=). 2. If the above command ran successfully, check its output to see if the setup worked as expected. 3. If the above command failed, check the tdpoerror.log and dsierror.log files. The tdpoerror.log is a log file created in the installation directory by default. The dsierror.log is generated by the Tivoli Storage Manager API when a problem occurs with the Tivoli Storage Manager API setup. 4. Fix the problem and run the tdpoconf utility again. 5. Verify that the Oracle target database instance is symbolically linked with Data Protection for Oracle: a. Log in as the Oracle user. b. Run the following command:
$ ls -al $ORACLE_HOME/lib/libobk.a

Look for the libobk link(s) in the system's respective 32-bit or 64-bit library directory. c. Verify that the link points to a file that exists. For example:
$ORACLE_HOME/lib/libobk.a -> /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/oracle/bin64/libobk64.a

or
$ORACLE_HOME/lib/libobk.so -> /usr/lib/sparcV9/libobk.so /usr/lib/sparcV9/libobk.so -> /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/oracle/bin64/libobk64.so

Make sure that the final link destination is the correct bit level and points to a file that exists. 6. If the problem persists, gather the following information: v A problem description file that includes the command you used and the session output you received when the problem occurred.

Determining the business impact


When you report a problem to IBM, you are asked to supply a severity level. Therefore, you need to understand and assess the business impact of the problem that you are reporting. Use the following criteria: Severity 1 The problem has a critical business impact. You are unable to use the program, resulting in a critical impact on operations. This condition requires an immediate solution. Severity 2 The problem has a significant business impact. The program is usable, but it is severely limited. Severity 3 The problem has some business impact. The program is usable, but less significant features (not critical to operations) are unavailable. Severity 4 The problem has minimal business impact. The problem causes little impact on operations, or a reasonable circumvention to the problem was implemented.
