now i am trying to install oracle secure backup 10.3.0.1 on a solaris machine,which attach a tape driver
i followed the installation step but cannot get SCSI Bus Name-Instance Parameter
the information of tape driver as below:
#mt -f /dev/rmt/0 status
HP DAT-72 tape drive:
sense key(0x0)= No Additional Sense residual= 0 retries= 0
file no= 0 block no= 0
the installation guide says:
Viewing SCSI Bus Name-Instance Parameter Values in Solaris
To determine the SCSI bus name-instance parameter to use for each tape device in Oracle Secure Backup:
1.Log into your media server as root.
2.Change directory to the install subdirectory under the Oracle Secure Backup home. For example:
# cd /usr/local/oracle/backup/install
3.Run the installdriver script to install the Oracle Secure Backup driver. For example:
NOTE: /usr/local/oracle/backup/.drv.solaris64/ob copied to /usr/kernel/drv/ob
NOTE: /usr/local/oracle/backup/.drv.solaris64/ob.conf copied to /usr/kernel/drv/ob.conf
NOTE: /usr/local/oracle/backup/.drv.solaris64/ob64 copied to /usr/kernel/drv/sparcv9/ob
NOTE: The Oracle Secure Backup device driver has been successfully installed.
Once installed, the Oracle Secure Backup driver is associated with the tape devices that it can control on this media server.
4.Run the following command to view tape devices associated with the Oracle Secure Backup driver:
# du -a /devices|grep ob|cut -f2
The output contains the needed tape device information.
when i run step 4,nothing appears,could u give me some suggestion?
I installed OSB 10.4.0.1.0 on solaris,the setup successfully shasudv3.oocl.com:/usr/local/oracle/backup#install/makedev Enter logical unit number 0-31 : 1 Enter 'd' if this device is a tape drive or 'l' if a SCSI-2 addressable
+tape library [d]: d+ The following SCSI busses are installed on shasudv3.oocl.com: 1 /devices/pci@780
+/pci@0/scsi@8/ob@5,0 pci1000,300+ Enter SCSI bus name : pci1000,300 Enter SCSI target id 0-15 : 5 Enter SCSI logical unit number (lun) 0-7 : 0 NOTE: table for devlinks... type=ddi_pseudo;name=ob;addr=5,0;minor=pci1000,300 obt1
but another question appears,after add a tape device shasudv3-tape to admin host via web console,when try to mount the tape,ths status always be "in service unmounted"
and the error shows: Error: can't mount volume in shasudv3-tape - operation requires ob driver
Is there anything need to do?thanks
