SAP on Oracle Incremental Backup

In this article

    Perform an incremental backup by using the BRBACKUP command with the rman_util parameter.

    An incremental backup contains the changed data from the last full backup. Incremental backups use less media and resources than full backups.

    To see all brbackup command options, see the Command Options for BRBACKUP section of the SAP Database Guide: Oracle.

    Note

    You can make incremental backups only with the rman_util parameter. For details, see the RMAN Backup Strategies section of the SAP Database Guide: Oracle.

    Example: Performing Incremental Backup in Online Mode

    brbackup -p $Oracle_HOME/dbs/veeam_initODB.sap -t online -d rman_util -m incr -u <user>/<password>

    Run the brbackup command with the following parameters:

    1. Specify the path to the initialization profile file ($Oracle_HOME/dbs/veeam_initODB.sap) as the argument for the -p (-profile) parameter.
    2. Specify online_force as the argument for the -t (-type) parameter. With this option, BRBACKUP performs backup of the database in the online state.
    3. Specify util_file as the argument for the -d (-device) parameter.
    4. Set incr as the argument for the -m (-mode) parameter.
    5. Specify credentials that must be used to connect to the database as the argument for the -u (-user) parameter.
    I want to report a typo

    There is a misspelling right here:

     

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
