Backing Up Oracle Using Tivoli Storage Management

An IBM Redbooks publication


This IBM Redbooks publication is designed to assist Oracle Database administrators and system/storage administrators with Oracle backup solutions using Tivoli Storage Manager V4.1. The primary tool we used for backup and recovery is Tivoli Data Protection (TDP) for Oracle V1.1, and the book covers setup and configuration of TDP as well as day-to-day management examples. Operating environments covered by the project are AIX, Sun Solaris, and Microsoft Windows 2000. We provide an overview of relational database management systems and how to plan for protecting them.

This book will help you install, tailor, and configure Tivoli Storage Manager and Tivoli Data Protection for Oracle on UNIX and Microsoft Windows 2000 platforms in order to accomplish backup and restore of Oracle8i databases. RMAN commands and setup are covered in detail, and emphasis is placed on practical recovery scenarios.

Also featured are new solutions utilizing Tivoli's hardware integration features for IBM's ESS intelligent storage subsystem, as well as an update on using TDP for Oracle V2.2 new features.

Note: This book replaces relevant sections of the earlier book, Using ADSM to Back Up Databases, SG24-4335-03, by updating and re-branding the content of that book.
