You can configure ACFS Snapshots as your subclient content.

Procedure

  1. Create a pre-process script to delete any existing ACFS snapshot and create a new snapshot. The script is a batch file and the content is as follows:

    E:\oracle\grid\bin\acfsutil snap delete windows_acfs_snap E:\Oracle\ASM_DATA\ORADATA E:\oracle\grid\bin\acfsutil snap create windows_acfs_snap E:\Oracle\ASM_DATA\ORADATA

  2. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Client Computers | <Client> | File System.
  3. Right-click the <defaultBackupset>, point to All Tasks and select New Subclient.
  4. On the General tab of the Creating New Subclient dialog box, type the name for the subclient in the Subclient Name box.
  5. On the Content tab of the Creating New Subclient dialog box, click Add Paths. Type the path to the new snapshot, and then click OK. For example, the path is "E:\Oracle\ASM_DATA\ORADATA\.ACFS\snaps\windows_acfs_snap".
  6. On the Pre/Post-Processing tab of the Creating New Subclient dialog box, type or select the path to the pre-processing script.
  7. On the Storage Device tab of the Creating New Subclient dialog box, select the storage policy name for the Data Storage Policy.
