RMAN backup process for RAC environment

Plug‑in for Oracle converts the job definition into the corresponding RMAN backup commands.

RMAN restore process for RAC environment

Plug‑in for Oracle converts the job definition into corresponding the RMAN restore and recovery commands.
The RMAN uses the Oracle® Media Management API to read the backup from the backup device managed by the NetVault Backup Server.


Licensing of the plug-in in a single-instance, or non-RAC environment, differs from the licensing of the plug-in in a multi-instance or RAC environment.

In a single-instance environment, one Edition-Based Plug‑in for Oracle license lets you back up and recover an unlimited number of Oracle® databases that reside on a single Database Server.
In a multi-instance or RAC environment, one RAC Database-Based Plug‑in for Oracle license lets you back up and recover a single database within the single RAC environment. This guideline applies no matter how many instances or nodes reside in the RAC environment. If you have five databases residing in the single RAC environment, purchase five RAC Database-Based Plug‑in for Oracle licenses, and so on.

Each RAC environment needs its own licensing. For example, if the production RAC environment has five databases and the test RAC environment has one database, five licenses are required for the production environment and one license is required for the test environment.
