Post 59 of Series : Install Oracle Secure Backup Client and Configuring Hosts and Datafile Sets on OSB (Oracle Secure Bakup)

Those Saints and devotees who serve the Lord have all their sins washed away. Have Mercy on me, O Lord and Master, and
keep me in the Sangat, the Congregation that You love. || 1 || I cannot even speak the Praises of the Lord, the Gardener of
the world. We are sinners, sinking like stones in water; grant Your Grace, and carry us stones across. || Pause || The rust
of poison and corruption from countless incarnations sticks to us; joining the Saadh Sangat, the Company of the Holy, it is
cleaned away. It is just like gold, which is heated in the fire, to remove the impurities from it.

Now we will install OSB (Oracle Secure backup) client on the other host (in my case ""). If client is not installed on the other srver, we cannot take backup and execute restore jobs from that server. Here are the steps to install Client :

[root@rac70 backup]# ./setup
Welcome to Oracle's setup program for Oracle Secure Backup.  This
program loads Oracle Secure Backup software from the CD-ROM to a
filesystem directory of your choosing.

Choose from one of the following options. The option you choose defines
the software components to be installed.
Configuration of this host is required after installation completes.
You can install the software on this host in one of the following ways:
    (a) administrative server, media server and client
    (b) media server and client
    (c) client
If you are not sure which option to choose, please refer to the Oracle
Secure Backup Installation Guide. (a,b or c) [a]? c

[root@rac70 backup]#

Before you take the back-up, you need to configure the hosts and the the datafile sets. USe the following steps to configure the datafile sets.

You will see the virtual tape library and the virtual tape drive on the home screen that you configured in the last step.


Configure -> Hosts


Dataset File Examples
When configuring a dataset file, it might be helpful to study the dataset files in the samples subdirectory of the Oracle Secure Backup home directory. The sample dataset files use the *.ds extension.
Including Only One Host in Each Dataset File
A typical strategy is to create one dataset file for each host to back up. For example, assume that your administrative domain includes client hosts brhost2, brhost3, and brhost4. You could create the dataset files brhost2.ds, brhost3.ds, and winhost1.ds as shown in the following examples. Each of the examples excludes core dumps and editor backup files.
Following example includes all files in the /, /usr, and /home file systems on host brhost2 except for core dumps and editor backup files.
include host brhost2 {
    exclude name core
    exclude name *.bak
    exclude name *~
    include path /
    include path /usr
    include path /home
Following example includes all files in the / and /usr file systems on host brhost3 except for core dumps and editor backup files.
Example 5-3 brhost3.ds
include host brhost3 {
    exclude name core
    exclude name *.bak
    exclude name *~
    include path /
    include path /usr
BAckup -> Datasets ->Add

I picked File. I will take the rman backup in this directory and will backup all the rman backup pieces to tape. 

I named it "backup_Disc_to_tp_71"

Click Dataset if there ar any errors:

 Now we are ready to start the backup job for file system to tape using OSB (Oracle Secure Backup)
I chant the chant of the Name of the Lord, day and night; I chant the Name of the Lord, Har, Har, Har, and enshrine it within my heart. The Name of the Lord, Har, Har, Har, is the most perfect medicine in this world; chanting the Name of the Lord, Har, Har, I have conquered my ego. || 3 || The Lord, Har, Har, is unapproachable, of unfathomable wisdom, unlimited, all-powerful and infinite. Show Mercy to Your humble servant, O Life of the world, and save the honor of servant Nanak. || 4 ||
