SMO does not work with any oracle tool such as rman or dbverify

[ Edited ]

We have recently installed and configured smo. We are able to create snapshots just fine using profiles that we create with "Do not use Rman" option. If I try to create a profile with "Use rman via recovery catalog" option, the profile creation fails. Similarly, if I choose the option "Use Rman via controlfile" the snapshot creation fails as well. Also, if we use dbverify through smo, the verify fails as well.

We are using SMO 3.0.1 on Solaris 10.

The following messages comes from SDU doing this:

  creating unrestricted volume clone netapp7:/vol/SnapManager_20091223110621724_uat1ordb2_u10_spntuat1data_d51 ... success

from the filer’s messages

The above error messages are misleading as  I can't even save a profile using the RMAN catalog?  I would think that would have nothing to do with the filer.

Also, why do regular backups (non RMAN) work just fine?  Wouldn’t it be running into the same issue (filer being full)?

Please let me know if anyone else has faced a similar problem with creating profiles using rman or that smo does not work with any oracle tool that it is suppose to?

Re: SMO does not work with any oracle tool such as rman or dbverify

Hi,

Firstly, please let me know were you able to create the profile using RMAN. If not please paste the error message. SMO does support and work with rman and dbverify.

Secondly, Please change the space guarantee of the source volume on filer to 10% and try taking the backup. For Rman profiles, SMO will create the flex volume mount the connected volumes on host for registering the backups or snapshots in RMAN. For Non-RMAN profiles this is not required.
