Re: How can I create VA 7400 BCV's?

Hi,

Have a look at these URL's:

http://www.hp.com/products1/storage/products/disk_arrays/partners/oracle_compatible_VA.html

http://www.hp.com/products1/storage/products/disk_arrays/highend/xpsolutions/backup_recovery.html

These are specific to the HP OmniBack or Data Protector software but there are links to zero downtime backups. Specifically there is a white paper on creating backups using RMAN.

HTH,

Dave

Did the above links help? Or, do you want to build your own scripts?

Re: How can I create VA 7400 BCV's?

I would like to build my own scripts, I fact I have a little idea:

1. Advice oracle database an online backup will start:
alter tablespace begin backup; (for each DB TB)

2. Create Business Copy LUN from Parent LUN
armcopy -p parent_lun -s business_copy_lun -a true array-id

3. Copy Parent LUN to Business Copy LUN
armcopy -s business_copy_lun -a true array-id

4. End backup state on DB
alter tablespace end backup; (for each DB TB)

Am I right with this procedure or I need to do something extra?

What will be happend if some user is writting to the LUN while I making the Business Copy?

Thanks.
