    DataProtector & RMAN

    errorlevel
      Hi,

      I've a doubt.

      ¿How I can know if DataProtector is using RMAN method to backup database?

      In rman, not appears any row for list backup:

      rman target /
      Recovery Manager: Release 10.2.0.4.0 - Production on Tue Aug 7 11:50:02 2012
      connected to target database: HRQ (DBID=2087301781)

      RMAN> list backup of database;
      using target database control file instead of recovery catalog
      RMAN> exit

      ¿Maybe DataProtector is using integration with oracle, but not using integration with rman?

      Thanks

          How about this link.

            I do not understand how to use this link to find out whether or not DataProtector using RMAN

            I think if the "list backup" returns no rows, this means that dataprotector is using Oracle integration for backups (but not integration with rman)

              Hello,
              you have to see backups from rman command:
              RMAN> list backup

              First you can check scipts that DataProtector is sending to RMAN from Dataprotector interface. You can check log from backup too. In other case you can run script from Dataprotector directly in RMAN - copy it directly to RMAN....

              Are you doing online backup?

                    You can check if you are backuping archive logs by rman:
                    RMAN> LIST ARCHIVELOG ALL;

                    As I have seen your log:
                    For database you are not using clasic RMAN backup - you are backuping by DB command - begin backup x end backup - in time between these commands you are copying data files...

                    Look for following book on internet: HP OpenView Storage Data Protector Administrator’s Guide

                    Normally in log you will see:

                    [Normal] From: aaa@aaa.cz "AAA4" Time: 12/13/11 09:42:10
                         Starting Oracle Recovery Manager.
