Oracle 9 backup using oraback.sh script

[ Edited ]

Hi Keith,

I found the oraback.sh script that looks like has been used with older versions of SnapCreator 3.1/3.2.  for backing up older versions of Oracle.  Unfortunately this client has two DBs that are still on Oracle 9.X.

Can this script be used with SC 3.4? I am assuming when I create the configuration for the profile I would select "NONE", and change the following in the config:

  • PRE_APP_QUIESCE_CMD01=/path/to/oraback.sh begin online <SID>
  • POST_APP_QUIESCE_CMD01=/path/to/oraback.sh end online <SID>

And add the following variable (noticed it is referenced in the comments, but not anywhere else in the config):

  • PRE_EXIT_CMD01=/path/to/oraback.sh end online <SID>

This will put the DB in/out of hot-backup mode, can this handle the archive log switch too and log rotation?

Thanks,

Jerry
