Enabling SAP Oracle Specific IntelliSnap Backups

When using SAP environments with BRTools version 7.1 and above, you can perform IntelliSnap backups using the util_vol or util_vol_online backup interfaces. SAP provides these interfaces to take volume level backups of the database.

Before You Begin

  • Configure the parameters in the init<SID>.sap file

    UNIX

    Parameter

    Value

    Description

    util_vol_access

    copy

    Specifies that the IntelliSnap backups can be copied to a different target location for verification purposes.

    util_vol_nlist

    no_check

    Deactivates the BACKINT check of the backup volumes. This check makes sure that the backup volumes do not contain non-database files or database files that belong to a database other than the one that you want to back up.

    You can set this parameter to disable a specific non-database file. For example, util_vol_nlist = (/oracle/oracle10g/CER/sapdata6/non_db_file)

    Warning: If the database volumes contain non-database files or database files from a database other than the one that you want to back up, the files can be overwritten without warning.

    util_file_unit

    all_data

    Specifies that the smallest unit for the IntelliSnap backup is the sapdata, origlog, or mirrorlog directories.
