Problem on recovering Oracle Database with smo 3.2 on Windows 2008 R2

Hi All

Here is our Platform:

OS: Windows 2008 R2

DB: Oracle 11.2.0.3.0 -> nls_territorySmiley FrustratedWITZERLAND -> nls_language: GERMAN

SMO: 3.2

Storage: FAS 2040 Version 8.1.2 7Mode

We can take backups but the restore/recovery breaks up with errors (see extract of error log further down).

Can anybody help me?

Thank you.

Re: Problem on recovering Oracle Database with smo 3.2 on Windows 2008 R2

Hello,

SnapManager for Oracle  is not supported in non-English language environments. You must set the language of Oracle database to English.

  • Add the following commands under the initial comments in /etc/init.d/smo_server file:

          NLS_LANG=American_America

          export NLS_LANG

          NLS_TERRITORY=America

          export NLS_TERRITORY

  • Restart the SnapManager server using the following command:

          /etc/init.d/smo_server restart

Please note if the login scripts such as .bash_profile, .bashrc, and .cshrc for the Oracle user is set to NLS_LANG, you must edit the script to not overwrite NLS_LANG.

Regards,

Himanshu

Sorry i missed to notice that it is a windows environment. You must do the following in windows environment:

Add the following commands under the initial comments in "C:\program files\Netapp\smo\smo_server" file:

     NLS_LANG=American_America

     export NLS_LANG

     NLS_TERRITORY=America

     export NLS_TERRITORY

Restart the SnapManager server using the following command:

     C:\program files\Netapp\smo\smo_server restart

If system environment variables is set to NLS_LANG, you must edit the script to not overwrite NLS_LANG.

Thanks,

Himanshu

Hi Himanshu

Thank you for your feedback but I can't find such a file as "smo_server".

Cheers,

Murat

Murat,

Can you please set the parameters NLS_LANGUAGE and NLS_TERRITORY in Oracle database and attempt the SMO operations again.

Himanshu

Re: Problem on recovering Oracle Database with smo 3.2 on Windows 2008 R2

I'm not allowed to change any parameters in the DB.

Would it also work if I set these parameters in the SMO wrapper as I still can't find the smo_server file on the WIN 2008 R2 machine?

Re: Problem on recovering Oracle Database with smo 3.2 on Windows 2008 R2

Hi All

I have solved this problem myself.

You need to add the file string "wrapper.env=NLS_LANG=AMERICAN_AMERICA.WE8ISO8859P1" in to the file  "wrapper.conf" and restart the service.

Re: Problem on recovering Oracle Database with smo 3.2 on Windows 2008 R2

[ Edited ]

to set the language to English on windows SMO add the follwowing line to 'wrapper.conf':

 

set.NLS_LANG=AMERICAN_AMERICA.WE8MSWIN1252

 

and restart the Netapp SMO service
