Adding Oracle Subclients Using the Commvault 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.


  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 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 '<client_name>' -instanceName '<dbname>' -subclientName '<subclient_name>'

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