Subclient Properties (Content)

Use this tab to define the contents of a new subclient or to change the content of an existing subclient. Items included in subclient content are backed up by the subclient.

Selective Online Full

Specifies whether selective online full backups will be performed for this subclient.

Backup Device

Specifies the SAP Oracle-specific device (Util_File, Rman_util, util_file_online, Util_Vol, Util_Vol_online) to use for backups.

Util_File

Specifies that a backup is performed file-by-file using a backup program specified by the BACKINT interface.

Rman_util

Specifies that an RMAN backup is performed in combination with a backup library and the backup tool specified by the BACKINT interface.

util_file_online

Specifies that an online backup is performed file-by-file using a backup program specified by the BACKINT interface. The backup status is set and ended dynamically for the tablespaces to be saved. If you use this device, the volume of offline redo log files is also significantly reduced during an online backup.

Util_Vol

Specifies that a backup is performed at disk-volume level.

Util_Vol_online

Specifies that a backup is performed at disk-volume level with dynamic switching of tablespace backup status.

The Util_File is a default option when you select SnapProtect Operations. However, you can select the option as per your requirement.

The Util_Vol, Util_Vol_online options will not be available in the following circumstances:

  • If the Snap is not setup
  • If the Snap Engine is DDR
  • If the BR*Tools version is below 7.10

For more information, refer to the appropriate SAP Oracle application documentation.

Data

Specifies whether data files will be backed up for this subclient, and provides you with a choice of backup modes - Online Database, Online Subset or Offline Database.

  • Backup Mode

    A choice of modes is provided to specify the manner in which data file backups for this subclient will be conducted.

    Online Database

    Specifies the backup of the online database.

    Online Subset

    Specifies the backup of a subset of database objects. Use the tree displayed in the Current Database View to add new or modify these subsets. The database must be online and in ARCHIVELOG mode when the backup is invoked.

    Offline Database

    Specifies the backup of the offline database. The database must be in the MOUNT mode when the backup is invoked.

  • Current Database View

    Displays the subsets (tablespaces and datafiles) that are available in the database associated with this subclient.

    Refresh

    Click to refresh the content of the database.

Backup Archive Log

Specifies whether archived redo log files will be backed up. These logs can be applied to the database in order to recover it to a point-in-time. Keep in mind that when this option is selected, the Resync Catalog option on the Backup Arguments tab will automatically be selected by default. This option is not available when you select Offline Database.

Archive Delete

Specifies whether archived redo log files will be deleted once they are backed up. Any archived redo log files that do not match the format indicated by the LOG_ARCHIVE_FORMAT environment variable are not deleted. This option is available only when you select the Backup Archive Log option.

Disable Switch Current Log

When selected, log switching is disabled for the current redo log file during an archive log backup.

Archive Log Second Copy

When selected, creates a second copy of the archive logs and deletes the original archive logs.
