BR*Tools Example: Performing a SAP on Oracle Consistent Online Backup

Use a consistent online backup to take backups without shutting down the database.

In a consistent online backup, the database files and the offline redo log files are on the same backup volume.

Note: The backed up offline redo logs are independent from the BRARCHIVE log backups.

Before You Begin

  1. Edit the init<SID>.utl file and add the CvInstanceName and CvClientName parameters. Use the source host values for these parameters.

    CvInstanceName
    Instance001
    CvClientName
    client1

  2. Optional: To have the CommCell Console authenticate the job, configure the parameters for CommCell Console third-party job authentication.
