    Using Symantec Netbackup to backup VMs Oracle Virtualization Service (LDOM)

    895361
      Hello there,

      We are in the process of acquiring Oracle VM Server for SPARC.

      The idea is to have as many as 8 VMs on each Oracle VM Server.

      Currently we backup Oracle DB usnig Netbackup RMAN DB agent thru hot backup. Could someone here assist as to how to backup the Oracle VM server as well as the VM instances using Netbackup.
      If there is any documentation out there that can help will be greatly appreciated.

      Thanks,

      BV

          Install Netbackup client to every VM instance (control/io/service/guest domain) and backup just like a physical server. Remember to dump LDom configs to disk on control domain.
