Overview

Based on your environment, you might need to fine-tune your Documentum instance or subclient. Following are the additional configurations that you can use to configure this agent.

Planning Your Backups

In order to recover a database during the event of a failure or data loss, you need to ensure that you always have the latest and consistent copy of the Documentum Repository data. To do this, you need to plan and decide on the backups to be performed. It is always recommended that you create separate subclients for each of these backups.

Note: Although you can re-configure the content of the Default Subclient to backup specific objects, we strongly recommend against it because this would disable the capability of the Default Subclient to serve as a catch-all entity for client data, thus increasing the likelihood that some data will not get backed up.

Storage Area Backup

Splitting up storage areas across different subclients allows for complete control of how often they are backed up. For example, you may want to backup specific storage areas four times a day and backup the database at the end of the day.

Therefore, a user-defined subclient must be created to specify only storage areas that are separate from the database.

  1. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Client Computers | <Client> | Documentum.
  2. Right-click the <Instance>, point to All Tasks and then click New Subclient.
  3. In the General tab, type the name (up to 32 characters) of the subclient that you want to create.
  4. Click the Storage Area tab.
  5. Select the Backup SA check box.
  6. Click Add and enter the SA Name, Client, and its SA Path in which the storage area resides.
  7. Click the Storage Device tab.
  8. Select a <Storage Policy> to associate with this subclient from the storage policy list.
  9. Click the Streams tab and configure streams for the storage areas.
  10. Click OK to save the subclient configuration.

    Notes:

    • Ensure that Backup FTI and Backup DB are not selected in the Full Text Index and Database tabs.
    • In order to discover far stores and their associated clients in a distributed environment, ensure that they are configured correctly.

Archive Log Backup

Specifying only log files in a subclient allows you to back them up more frequently than backing up the entire database. Archive log backups enable you to recover database transactions that have been lost due to an operating system or disk failure. You can apply these archive logs to an online backup in order to recover a database.

Full backups generally includes both the data and logs. However, because of their importance in recovering data, it is recommended that you create separate subclients for backing up archived log files.

  1. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Client Computers | <Client> | Documentum.
  2. Right-click the <Instance>, point to All Tasks and then click New Subclient.
  3. Click the General tab, type the name (up to 32 characters) of the subclient that you want to create.
  4. Click the Database tab.
  5. Click Backup Archive Log check box.
  6. Click the Storage Device tab.
  7. Select a <Storage Policy> to associate with this subclient from the storage policy list.
  8. Click the Streams tab and configure streams for the log.
  9. Click OK to save the subclient configuration.

    Note: Ensure that Backup FTI and Backup SA are not selected in the Full Text Index and Storage Area tabs.

Offline Database Backup

Offline backups are performed when the database is shut down and unavailable for use. Offline backups are always full backups and do not include the archived log files.

In order to backup the database when it is offline, you need to create a separate user-defined subclient for offline backup.

  1. Make sure that the database used for creating the subclient is up and running. This ensures that the system accesses the most recent configuration of the database.
  2. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Client Computers | <Client> | Documentum.
  3. Right-click the <Instance>, point to All Tasks and then click New Subclient.
  4. Click the General tab, type the name (up to 32 characters) of the subclient that you want to create.
  5. Click the Database tab.
  6. Select the Backup DB check box and click Offline Database.
  7. You will be prompted with a Warning message.

    For offline backup, database will be shut down and put in mounted mode.

    Click OK.

  8. Click the Storage Device tab.
  9. Select a <Storage Policy> to associate with this subclient from the storage policy list.
  10. Click the Streams tab and configure streams for the database.
  11. Click OK to save the subclient configuration.

    Note: Ensure that Backup FTI and Backup SA are not selected in the Full Text Index and Storage Area tabs.

Full Text Index Backup

Including only full-text indexes in a subclient allows for complete control of how often they are backed up. For example, you may want to backup full-text indexes periodically.

Therefore, a user-defined subclient must be created to specify only full-text indexes.

  1. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Client Computers | <Client> | Documentum.
  2. Right-click the <Instance>, point to All Tasks and then click New Subclient.
  3. Click the General tab, type the name (up to 32 characters) of the subclient that you want to create.
  4. Click the Full Text Index tab.
  5. Select the Backup FTI check box.
  6. Click Add and enter the FTI Name, Client, and its FTI Path in which the full-text index resides.
  7. For the Windows client, click Change and select Impersonate User to enter the login credentials. Click OK. This option is not present for the UNIX clients.
  8. Click the Storage Device tab, select a <Storage Policy> to associate with this subclient from the storage policy list.
  9. Click OK to save the subclient configuration.

    Note: Ensure that Backup DB and Backup SA are not selected in the Database and Storage Area tabs.

Online Database Backup

Online backups are performed when the database is online. For Oracle databases, the database must be in ARCHIVELOG mode. Data files are included when you back up the database in online mode. Archived log files, Oracle control files, and Oracle Server Parameter (SP) files can also be included in the backup. These backups do not require database downtime and are extremely useful when you need to perform a point-in-time restore of the Oracle database.

You can perform a full or incremental backups when the database is online. In order to backup the Oracle database when it is online, you need to create a separate user-defined subclient for online backup.

  1. Make sure that the database used for creating the subclient is up and running. This ensures that the system accesses the most recent configuration of the database.
  2. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Client Computers | <Client> | Documentum.
  3. Right-click the <Instance>, point to All Tasks and then click New Subclient.
  4. Click the General tab and type the name (up to 32 characters) of the subclient that you want to create.
  5. Click the Database tab.
  6. Select the Backup DB check box.

    By default, Online Database is selected.

    • Select the Backup Archive Log.
    • Select the Control File Backup.
    • Select the Sp File Backup.
  7. Click the Storage Device tab.
  8. Select a <Storage Policy> to associate with this subclient from the storage policy list.
  9. Click the Streams tab and configure streams for the database.
  10. Click OK to save the subclient configuration.

    Note: Ensure that Backup FTI and Backup SA are not selected in the Full Text Index and Storage Area tabs.

Selective Copy - Full Backup

A selective copy allows you to copy backup data selectively from a source copy to this copy, providing for better tape rotation. Since only selective backups can be copied to selective copies, the selective copies cannot be promoted to the primary copy, only synchronous copies can be promoted. Note that the data selection process does not have to be the same for all auxiliary copies.

During an auxiliary copy operation or a data protection operation that creates an inline copy, only those backups from the primary copy that meet certain criteria will be copied to a selective copy. You can define a selective copy to be time-based, automatically selected, or automatically not selected on the primary copy.

If the copy is defined as All Fulls, all full backups on the primary copy will be copied during an auxiliary copy operation or a data protection operation that creates an inline copy. If the copy is defined as time-based, only the first or last full backup that occurs within each selected weekly, monthly, quarterly, half-yearly, or yearly interval will be copied. You have the option of creating and associating a custom calendar to the copy, so that the intervals can be further customized.

Selective copy behavior also depends on the FTI configuration. If FTI components are configured, then you should back up the FTI components to make job eligible for selective copy, and also to recover the complete Documentum repository. If FTI components are not configured, then backing up the database and storage area is enough to make jobs eligible for selective copy, and also to recover the complete Documentum repository.

Only Openchain=0 jobs are eligible for selective copy. You can find this information in the CommServe database.

Configuring User Accounts for Backups

The Documentum iDataAgent requires the following application accounts to perform backup and restore operations:

  • A Docbase account to access the Documentum Docbase (or Repository).
  • A database account to access either Oracle or DB2 or SQL database.

The credentials for the Docbase and database accounts are provided during the instance configuration after the installation of the Agent. You can change the user accounts at the instance level for both application accounts.

Docbase User Account

The Documentum Agent requires a user account to log on to the related Documentum docbase to access the data. The user account is the Documentum Install owner account that was used to install the Documentum software.

The account is already set up on the client after the Documentum software installation.

Oracle User Account Privileges

The Documentum iDataAgent requires an Oracle user account to access the Oracle application and database. You may have separate user accounts to access these components.

The following tables illustrates the required privileges these user accounts should have.

  • An operating system account with administrator privileges for the Oracle application.

    The following table defines the user account requirements for each operating system:

    Operating System

    User Account

    Windows

    • The Local Administrator of the computer on which the Oracle database resides.
    • The user must be part of the ora_dba group with read and write permissions on the Commvault folder.

    Note: when using Oracle 12c, grant full control permission for the Oracle home user for the Commvault folder.

    UNIX

    Member of the user group assigned during the Agent installation. The operating system user account can also be used.

  • An Oracle user account with the SYSDBA or SYSBACKUP (in Oracle version 12 or higher) privilege can access the Oracle target database. Provide the account information as a connect string with the following connection details:
    • The database user ID and password
    • The Oracle Service Name (as defined in the tnsnames.ora file)

    Use separate accounts to access the target database and the recovery catalog database. The recovery catalog database user account must have RECOVERY_CATALOG_OWNER privileges, which are not required for the target database user.

    By default, the user account for the target database has administration privileges and must be established so the Oracle database administrator can configure additional accounts (except Impersonate User).

Initially, the user account credentials are provided during the instance configuration after the installation of the Agent. You can subsequently change the user account information to access the Oracle database and application at the Instance level whenever the credentials are updated.

     Refer to Pre/Post Processes documentation for a comprehensive overview prior to using this feature.

    Enable and Disable Data Encryption

    You can enable data encryption from the instance and subclient level. When accessing the Encryption tab from the instance level, you are selecting either Network and/or Media-side encryption for third-party Command Line operations. When accessing this same tab from the subclient level, the settings selected apply only to the selected subclient content for operations run from the CommCell Console.

    Consider the following before enabling encryption:

    • Encryption must be enabled at the client level prior to configuring any subclients residing on that client.
    • If you are attempting to configure for third-party Command Line operations, enable data encryption from the instance level.

    Encryption can be set from the Encryption tab of the associated Properties dialog box at the instance and subclient level.

    Refer to the Data Encryption documentation for a comprehensive overview prior to using this feature

Deleting an Instance or a Subclient

The following sections describe the steps involved in deleting an instance or subclient.

When you delete an instance or subclient, the associated data is logically deleted and you can no longer access the corresponding data from CommCell Console for recovery purposes.

For information on how to recover data if you accidentally delete an entity, see Recovering Data Associated with Deleted Clients and Storage Policies.

Delete an Instance

Consider the following before deleting an instance:

  • When you delete a specific instance all job schedules and job histories that pertain to any of the levels within the deleted instance are deleted.
  • You cannot delete an instance if it is being backed up. Attempts to delete an instance under such conditions cause the deletion to fail. If a backup is in progress, either wait for the backup to complete or kill the backup job using the Job Manager. Once the backup is no longer in progress, you can delete the instance level.
  • You cannot delete an instance if there is only one instance present for an agent. To delete the final instance, you must remove the agent software from the client computer.
  1. From the CommCell Browser, right-click the instance that you want to delete, click All Tasks and then click Delete.
  2. Click Yes to confirm the deletion. (Clicking No cancels the deletion and retains the node.)

Delete a Subclient

Consider the following before deleting a subclient:

  • You cannot delete a default subclient.
  • Schedules associated with the subclient are also automatically deleted.
  1. From the CommCell Browser, right-click the user-defined subclient that you want to delete, and then click Delete from the shortcut menu.
  2. A confirmation message is displayed, asking if you want to delete the subclient.

    Click No to cancel the deletion and retain the subclient, or click Yes to continue the deletion.
