Full Backup

In this article

    To backup an SAP on Oracle database using RMAN, you must use the brbackup tool with the rman_util parameter and with the defined directory for SBT library.

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

    1. Specify the path to the initialization profile file (veeam_initSID.sap) as the argument for the -p (-profile) parameter.
    2. Specify rman_util as the argument for the -d (-device) parameter. This option defines that the backup will be performed using Oracle RMAN.
    3. Specify online as the argument for the -t (-type) parameter. With this option, BRBACKUP performs backup of the database in the online state.
    4. Specify full as the argument for the -m (-mode) parameter. With this option, BRBACKUP performs backup of files in all tablespaces, control files and redo log files.
    5. Specify credentials that will be used to connect to the database as the argument for the -u (-user) parameter. For details, see SAP Documentation.

    For the fill list of BRBACKUP parameters, see the Command Options for BRBACKUP section of the SAP Database Guide: Oracle.
