Creating an Amazon RDS for Oracle Logical Subclient

You can create a subclient that contains the Amazon RDS Oracle data that you want to protect.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, expand Client Computers > client > Oracle.
  2. Right-click the instance, point to All Tasks, and then click New Logical Subclient.

    The Create New Logical Dump Subclient dialog box appears.

  3. On the General tab, in the Subclient name box, type a unique name for the subclient.
  4. On the Content tab, specify the data to include in the backup:
    1. Determine the schemas to include:
      • To include the entire database, select Full Database.
      • To include a subset of the tables, select Schema. Then, under Available Schema, select the schemas to include in the backup, and then click Add All.
    2. In the Parallelism for export box, type the number of streams that the software uses for the export utility.
    3. In the Staging path for dump file box, type the complete path on the proxy server where the software places the dump file.

      The export dump files and the log files are placed in CVEXjobID folders under the path that you define.

    4. To override the Amazon RDS instance credentials, select the Override instance credentials check box, and then, in the Connect String boxes, type the connect string for the Oracle database.
  5. On the Storage Device tab, from the Storage Policy list, select the storage policy name.
  6. Click OK.


You can perform all backup operations for the Oracle data from the subclient.
