OMNIBACK and Oracle integration

Does anyone know what version of OMNIBACK supports backups of 7.3.4 databases and
8.1.5 databases using both EBU and RMAN integration?

Re: OMNIBACK and Oracle integration

I assume you are not concerned about a cold backup.

If you want to back up the edatabase while it is running, you need to place the tables into hot backup mode. Once that is done, you can backup and restore with omniback and have confidence that your data can be restored.

Re: OMNIBACK and Oracle integration

I'm aware of how to do hot and cold backups with Oracle and I have been using OMNIBACK 2.55 with EBU to manage hot and cold Oracle
backups with EBU. I guess my question is can I use my current version of Omniback to back up both Oracle 8.1.5 databases and 7.3.4
databases with Omnibacks Oracle integratrion?
Is there a version of OMNIBACK that supports
integration with Oracle backup utilities EBU and RMAN?Since EBU goes away with Oracle 8.x Omniback must integrate with RMAN.

Re: OMNIBACK and Oracle integration

Omniback has a module for Oracle 8 integration which you can push from the install window of the GUI. I have not tested with hotbackups for 8.x, though. We are still in the early stages of transitioning of of 7.3.4

Re: OMNIBACK and Oracle integration

Omniback 3.x has templates for the online backup of Oracle 8 using rman although we tend to use post/prexec scripts to change the database mode instead of using Omni integration. This way it doest matter what version of Oracle we are using.

Re: OMNIBACK and Oracle integration

Sorry I should have said:
OB II 3.1 supports Oracle 7.3.4 (EBU 2.2), 8.0.X and 8.1.5 (RMAN)on UX 11.X only.
OBII 3.1 supports 7.3.4 (EBU 2.2) and 8.0.X (RMAN)on 10.20.

You can confirm this in the Support Matrix
found at:
http://www.openview.hp.com/products/omnibackmixed/system/
or attached PDF.
OBII 3.5 will also support it but I have not looked at it yet.
