Data Backup and Recovery

SMO + Veritas Cluster Server support.

Hi All,

This is Alfonso from NetApp - Spain.

I have a customer who would like to use SMO with several Oracle Databases running in an active-passive (failover, non-RAC) two-nodes Veritas Cluster over Solaris 10.

Choosing Snap Manager for Oracle as the Storage Solution in the IMT, I can see some clustering supported configurations using software from different vendors (HP Service Guard, Sun Cluster, Oracle Clusterware), but it seems VCS is not supported. Under Veritas I can only select the "SF Oracle RAC" component but not VCS.

These are the specific versions for each component:

- Solaris 10 (sparc) Update 6
- Oracle 10gR2
- VCS 5.0 (Veritas-5.0MP3-08) (Also VxVM + VxFS)
- Protocol FC
- Data Ontap

I was wondering if we have any plans to support VCS with SMO in the near future.
Should a PVR be used for such configurations?

Thanks a lot in advance,



The IMT will be updated very soon to reflect the new platform support included in the SDU 4.1.1 release and SMO 3.0.2.

I do not believe the VxTS MP* RP* support you are looking for is included.

I would suggest contacting the SDU Product Manager directly.  He can provide the support details you need and whether or not a PVR is possible or not.
