Enabling MediaAgent Compression for Oracle or Oracle RAC Log Backups

You can use this procedure when you use a non-deduplication storage policy for Oracle and Oracle RAC backups and you only want to use compression for the log backups.


  1. Set the Enable compression on Media Agent for Oracle/Oracle RAC Non-Dedup backups Media Management parameter to 1 to use the MediaAgent compression. For information on how to configure the parameter, see Configure the Media Management Parameters.
  2. Create a primary copy for the storage policy.

    You must select the Enable software compression on clients check box (Storage Policy Copy Properties dialog box, Advanced tab).

  3. Configure a non-deduplication storage policy to use for the subclient.


You can assign the storage policy to subclients configured for logs where you want the log backups to use the MediaAgent for compression.
