Improved support for using the CATALOG BACKUPPIECE and CROSSCHECK commands to verify that backup data is synchronized with the corresponding data in the applicable media for the RMAN repository. You can use CATALOG DEVICE TYPE SBT for checking backuppieces stored in System Backup to Tape (SBT) media.

DNPO-833, DNPO-1269 (OAG-867)

Updated the plug-in to create the path specified in the Auxiliary Destination field if it does not exist and you are performing a tablespace or table-level point-in-time recovery (PITR).


For the RMAN-based Files per Backup Set option, updated the defaults of the For Tablespaces/Datafiles and For Archive Logs settings from 0 to 1. If you are using deduplication, this improves the process by requiring the plug-in to complete the backup process in a specific order.


Updated the plug-in to support use of the Restore/Recover from User Defined Backup Tag option on the Restore Options tab when you restore archive logs.


Added support for Oracle 19c running on Windows Server 2019.


For Recovery Manager (RMAN)-based backups, added a For Archive Logs Use Backup Not Backed up (number of times) option. This option lets you skip a backup of archive logs after a specified number of backups have occurred.


For RMAN-based backups, added a added a Skip Inaccessible Archive Logs option. This option ensures that inaccessible archive logs do not cause a backup job to fail.


Added support for Oracle 19c (64-bit) on-premises running on 64-bit versions of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7 or later, SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) 12 SP3 or later, Oracle Linux 7, Solaris 11.x SPARC, and AIX 7.1L and 7.2.
