Configuration - SAP MaxDB iDataAgent

Configuration

Once the SAP MaxDB iDataAgent is installed, you need to configure an instance and then associate the SAP MaxDB database with the iDataAgent. Each instance corresponds to a SAP MaxDB database.

CommCell Console Configuration

Create a SAP MaxDB instance in the CommCell Console.

  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers > client.
  2. Right-click SAP for MaxDB, point to All Tasks and then click New Instance.

    The Creating New Instance dialog box appears.

  3. On the General tab:
    1. In the SAP MaxDB Instance box, enter the instance name.
    2. Optional: Enter a description of the instance in the Description field.
  4. On the Storage Device tab, enter storage policy information:
    1. Select the storage policy for command line backups. On the Command Line Backup tab, select the storage policy that you want to use for command line backups from the Storage Policy used for SAP user command list.
    2. Optional: Use a separate storage policy for log backups. On the Log Storage Policy tab, select the storage policy that you want to use for archive log backups from the Log Storage Policy list.
  5. Click OK to close the Creating New Instance dialog box.

SAP MaxDB Configuration

  1. Run the command from the DBM client interface to associate the SAP MaxDB database with the product software.

    Windows Configuration

    Note: You must use double quotes when there is a space in the path that points to the backint.conf file.

    dbm_configset -raw BSI_ENV <software install path>\SapMaxDbAgent\backint.conf

    Example

    In this example, you do not need the double quotes.

    dbm_configset -raw BSI_ENV C:\SapMaxDB\backint.conf

    In this example, you must use double quotes because the path contains a space ("Program Files").

    dbm_configset -raw BSI_ENV "C:\Program Files\##_DOC_OEM_INSTALL_DESTINATION_COMPANY_FOLDER_##\SnapProtect\SapMaxDbAgent\backint.conf"

    UNIX Configuration

    Log on to the database and then type the following command from the DBM client interface, substituting the database_name, user_name, and password:

    dbm_configset -raw BSI_ENV <software install path>/SapMaxDbAgent/backint.conf
    dbm_configset -raw set_variable_0 LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/<software install path>/Base
    dbm_configset -raw set_variable_1 SHLIB_PATH=/<software install path>/Base

    Example

    dbm_configset -raw BSI_ENV /opt/simpana/SapMaxDbAgent/backint.conf
    dbm_configset -raw set_variable_0 LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/opt/simpana/Base
    dbm_configset -raw set_variable_1 SHLIB_PATH=/opt/simpana/Base

    Configure the shared library path in the .profile file from the root directory.

    AIX and HP-UX Configuration:

    SHLIB_PATH=/<software install path>/Base:/<software install path>/Base64
    export SHLIB_PATH
    For Linux and Solaris:
    LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/<software install path>/Base:/<software install path>/Base64
    export LD_LIBRARY_PATH

  2. Configure the SAP MaxDB parameter file (param). Include the required and optional parameters.
