Adding Oracle Subclients Using the SnapProtect Command Line Interface

Use XML to create Oracle subclients. Run the operation from the command line, or automate configuration by combining command line operations in a script.

The XML parameters can be included in the XML file, or specified on the command line when they frequently change. For more information on command line parameters and XML elements, see Command Line - Syntax.

Procedure

  1. On the Oracle Agent host, run the qlogin command to log on to the CommServe computer.
  2. Download the CreateSubclient.xml file to the computer where you will run the command.
  3. Open the CreateSubclient.xml file, add your specific parameters and save the file.

    For information on supported subclient XML parameters, see Available XML Parameters for Oracle Subclient Configuration.

  4. On the command line, go to Software_Installation_Directory/Base and type the following command.

    qoperation execute -af xml_path\create_subclient_template.xml -appName 'Oracle' -clientName <clientname> -instanceName <instance_name> -subclientName <subclientname> -storagePolicyName <storagepolicyname> -isSnapBackupEnabled true -snapShotEngineName <Snapshot_engine> isRMANEnableForTapeMovement <enable_RMAN> -useRmanForLogBackup <use_RMAN_for_Log_Backup>

  5. Run the qlogout command to log off the CommServe computer.

Examples

To create a selective online full SnapProtect subclient, set the following parameters:

Parameter Value
data 'true'
selectiveOnlineFull 'true'
dataBackupStoragePolicy/storagePolicyName Storage Policy Name (in this example, 'data_sp')
isSnapBackupEnabled 'true'

qoperation execute -af /CLI/create_subclient_template.xml -appName 'Oracle' -clientName 'client1' -instanceName 'dbname' -subclientName 'subclient1' -selectiveOnlineFull true -dataBackupStoragePolicy/storagePolicyName 'data_sp' -isSnapBackupEnabled true

To create an online SnapProtect  subclient, set the following parameters:

Parameter Value
data 'true'
backupMode 'true'
dataBackupStoragePolicy/storagePolicyName Storage Policy Name (in this example, 'data_sp')
isSnapBackupEnabled 'true'

qoperation execute -af /CLI/create_subclient_template.xml -appName 'Oracle' -clientName 'client1' -instanceName 'dbname' -subclientName 'subclient1' -data true -backupMode ONLINE_DB -dataBackupStoragePolicy/storagePolicyName 'data_sp' -isSnapBackupEnabled true

To create an offline SnapProtect  subclient, set the following parameters:

Parameter Value
data 'true'
backupMode 'OFFLINE_DB'
dataBackupStoragePolicy/storagePolicyName Storage Policy Name (in this example, 'data_sp')
isSnapBackupEnabled 'true'

qoperation execute -af /CLI/create_subclient_template.xml -appName 'Oracle' -clientName 'client1' -instanceName 'dbname' -subclientName 'offlinesubclient' -data true -backupMode OFFLINE_DB -dataBackupStoragePolicy/storagePolicyName 'data_sp' -isSnapBackupEnabled true
