NetVault Backup Server and Client software

At a minimum, the Client version of NetVault Backup must be installed on the machine where the plug-in is installed. In a single-instance non-RAC environment, the plug-in is installed on the server where the Oracle® database resides. In a multi-instance RAC environment, the plug-in is installed on one of the nodes that hosts one of the instances for the RAC-enabled database.

Database in ARCHIVELOG mode

Verify that the database is running in ARCHIVELOG mode. For instructions on enabling the archiving of filled groups of redo log files, see the Oracle® Administrator’s Guide.

To verify that the database is properly set in this mode, perform the following steps.

1
Start SQL*Plus, and connect with administrator privileges to the database.
sqlplus SYS/<password>@<connect_identifier> AS SYSDBA
The output shows the current mode. If the Automatic archival property displays an Enabled status, the database is properly configured. The following example shows that the Database log mode is set to Archive Mode.

Adding the Oracle user to the local administrator group on Windows

If you are using Oracle® 12.x or later and you created an Oracle administrative user as part of your installation, add this user to the local administrator group on Windows®. This step ensures that RMAN backups have access to the NetVault Backup Process Manager (nvpmgr).

The following steps describe how to add the user on Windows Server 2008 R2. For information for your environment, see the applicable system documentation.

1
Click Start > Administrative Tools > Computer Management.
2
In the Computer Management window, open System Tools, select Local Users and Groups, and select Users.
4
In the Properties dialog box, select the Member Of tab, and click Add.
