1
In the Navigation Pane, click Create Backup Job, and click Create New next to the Selections list.
3
Double-click Plug‑in for Oracle, click the applicable database, and select View Details from the context menu.
Database Name: Name of the selected database as identified in the NAME column of the sys.v$database v$ table.
DBID: Oracle DBID for the selected database. DBID is the internal, uniquely generated number that differentiates databases and is required during the disaster recovery process.
Oracle Version: Oracle version or release of the selected database. When the selected database is the Oracle Enterprise Edition, this information is also displayed. If the selected database is any other edition of Oracle, only the Oracle version is displayed.
NLS_LANG: Displays the default language of the database. This language is used for messages, day and month names, symbols for AD, BC, a.m., and p.m., and the default sorting mechanism.
Flash Recovery Area Destination: When FRA is enabled, displays the destination of the FRA.
Flashback Database Enabled: Indicates YES if the Flashback Database feature is enabled or NO if not.
Real Application Clusters: Displays TRUE if the instance is part of multi-instance RAC environment or FALSE if the instance is a single-instance environment.
Block Media Recovery: Displays TRUE if Block Media Recovery is available for the selected database and is based on the Oracle Edition of the database.
Block Change Tracking: Displays ENABLED if Block Change Tracking has been enabled for the database or DISABLED if not.
Control File Autobackup: Displays ON if Control File Autobackups have been enabled for the database or OFF if not.
Log Mode: Displays ARCHIVELOG if the database has automatic archiving of the redo logs enabled or NOARCHIVELOG if not.

Using RMAN Post-Backup Scripts

The plug-in provides a feature to run a script containing RMAN commands on completion of a backup job. For example, you can use this feature to perform an RMAN Repository crosscheck; this crosscheck ensures that data about backups in the RMAN Repository are synchronized with corresponding data in the NetVault Database by running a post-backup script that contains the appropriate RMAN commands. This functionality is designed for Oracle DBAs with advanced RMAN and scripting experience.
