Oracle RAC Subclients

The Oracle RAC iDataAgent is designed to back up and restore an Oracle RAC database (*.dbf) along with control files (*.ctl) and archived redo log files. After you create an Oracle RAC pseudo-client, a default subclient is created by the system only after you first configure an Oracle database instance from the CommCell Console. Since an Oracle RAC instance references a RAC database, the default subclient includes the entire database associated with that instance. However, you can use the CommCell Console to create user-defined subclients to include only some of the database content by configuring the Subclient Properties (Content) tab. Any content that is not included in the user-defined subclients will remain in the default subclient.

You can create user-defined subclients to backup the specific components or conditions, such as the following:

  • Whether a backup will be offline or online.
  • Whether the entire database will be backed up, or only a subset of objects within the database should be backed up.
  • Whether the archive logs need to be backed up separately
  • Manage your archive log and control file backups.

If a new database object is added to the database, and if none of the subclients contain that database object, then that object is automatically assigned to the content of the default subclient.

Note: When you do not select the catalog database at the instance level, clear the Resync Recovery Catalog check box in the subclient level.
