This is a little away from the norm and I am new to Oracle secure Backup.
We have several databases on physically separate servers, all backup to a central disk (a ZFS shared file-system).
We have a media server also with the same mounted file-system so it can see all of the RMAN backups there.
Secure backup is installed on the media server and is configured as such.
The question I have is I need to backup the file system to tape where all the RMAN backups live, I have configured the data set but I get file permission errors for each of the RMAN backup files in the directory.
I have tried to change these permissions but to no avail (assuming it is just a read write access change that is needed - but this may be a problem in the long run). What is the general process for backup of already created RMAN backups sat in a shared area? I know its not the norm to do to disk then to tape backups but can this be done? I would have installed Secure backup client on each server and managed the whole backup through secure backup but this is not possible I must do the to tape from the file system, any advise and guidance on this would be much appreciated.
You can easily accomplish a very streamlined D2D2T strategy! RMAN backup to disk...then backup that disk to tape via RMAN and OSB. Upon restore, RMAN will restore from best media disk or tape based on where files are located.
