Offline backup.

Hello,

We have Data Protector A.5.00

I'm new to Data Protector.

Currently we have one database offline backup taken from Data Protector using brbackup.

I need to take the database offline backup through Data Protector without using brbackup.

Please advise how to do it.

Thanks in advance.

Regards

Re: Offline backup.

Hello Ramnath,

Since your goal is an offline backup. You can first stop your database. Second do a full filesystem backup of all the filesystems that your database uses for your data, idx, redo logs, etc. When backup is finished just re-start your database.

Re: Offline backup.

Hi,
you need to write yourself two scripts (one to stop the DB and one to start it), place these in the userscripts area and have your backup spec call the stop script as the "pre-exec" script. Once this has run, the backups will run. Once the backups have finished they will call the "post-exec" script (which you will point to your start script).
The place to enter these in the GUI is under the options tab, you will see an area titled "backup specificatio options", in there is a button called Advanced, that button pops up a "backup options" window that has the pre and post exec fields.
