Affected NV Version: ALL
Plugin Version: Oracle/ Oracle RMAN
Jobs auto-generated by RMAN CLI command to backup db changes fill up schedule db as a new job is created every time
Schedule db fills up quickly with lots of ‘RMAN controlled backup’ jobs
Every time the RMAN CLI command to backup changes runs a new job is created.
In order to delete the RMAN generated jobs set up an NVDB backup job and create a postscript to run on completion of this job. Enter the following into a .bat file and save this in the /netvault/scripts dir:
“C:Program Files\Bakbone Software\Netvault\util\nvjobdelete.exe” -plugin “Oracle APM: *”
or “C:Program Files\Bakbone Software\Netvailt\util\nvjobdelete.exe” -jobtitle “RMAN controlled backup”
If the Netvault user is not admin enter the following in the .bat file above the command:
Then place this scriptname in the 'post-script' field in advanced options of the NVDB backup job.
As soon as the NVDB job completes, the RMAN generated jobs should be automatically deleted from the schedule db.
