Configuring Oracle RAC Archive Log Backups

You can perform an IntelliSnap backup for a subclient that only contains the logs. By default, the system will use data storage policy for IntelliSnap backups and backup copy. If you create a log specific subclient, the log specific storage policy is used for IntelliSnap backups and backup copies.

Before You Begin

If you want to use the Oracle RMAN backup copy option by using a proxy server, you must contact Oracle for their required licensing.


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

    The Create New Subclient dialog box appears.

  3. On the General tab, in the Subclient Name box, enter a name for the subclient.
  4. On the Content tab, clear the Data check box.
  5. On the Log Backups tab, select the Backup Archive Log check box.
  6. On the Storage Device tab, from the Storage Policy list, select the storage policy name for the log backups.
  7. On the Storage Device tab, from the Data Storage Policy list, select the storage policy name.
  8. On the IntelliSnap Operations, make the following selections:
    1. Select the IntelliSnap check box.
    2. From the Available Snap Engines list, select the snap engine name.
    3. Configure the backup copy options. From the Use Proxy list, select the MediaAgent that performs the backup copy operations.

      Note: The proxy server operating system must be the same or later than the client computer.

    4. Determine the copy option.
