Backing up data

You can use the WebUI or CLI to back up the CDB and PDBs.

To set up the plug-in for backup and restore of a CDB using the WebUI, use the same process outlined in Adding a database.

Performing backups is almost identical to the process described in Performing RMAN backups. You must use sets — Backup Selection Set, Backup Options Set, Schedule Set, Target Set, and Advanced Options Set — to create a backup job. Note the following differences:

To include all the datafiles of the CDB root container, the seed container, and all the datafiles of the plugged-in PDBs, select the Database node or the All Tablespaces node of a CDB.

When you back up the CDB and PDBs from the CLI, you have the option of backing up everything or backing up only the PDB that is targeted by a specific CDB or a specific PDB.

The CLI displays the applicable output regarding the status of the backup.

Restoring data

You can use the WebUI or CLI to back up the CDB and PDBs.

If you use the WebUI to create and run a backup of a CDB, including its PDBs, you can restore the whole CDB and individual tablespaces or datafiles using the steps provided in Performing RMAN restores. For a more granular restore, you can use the CLI as described in Restoring the CDB and PDBs from the CLI.

When you restore the CDB and PDBs from the CLI, you have the option of restoring everything or restoring only the PDB that is targeted by a specific CDB.

CDBs are restored in a manner similar to restoring non-CDBs. The following example shows the restore of a tablespace from the CDB.

Troubleshooting

Unable to add a database

When attempting to add a database to the plug-in, the following error appears:

Connection to the database cannot be established due to LDAP failure.

Disable LDAP, and try adding the database again.
