RMAN Catalog backuppiece located on Tape

Thursday, March 6, 2014

I've recorded backups on tape to RMAN repository several times already, but every next time I needed to do that I was searching through notes to find proper procedure.

This time I will note procedure in form of the blog post.

Note!
Test is performed on Oracle version 11.1.0.7.


These were my unsuccessful attempts:

RMAN> run
2> {
3> allocate channel c1 device type 'sbt_tape';
4> send 'NSR_ENV=(NSR_SERVER=backup_server,NSR_CLIENT=oracle_client,NSR_DATA_VOLUME=OrclPool)';
5> catalog  backuppiece 'ARCH_ORCL_rep2dod5_s128878_p1';
6> }

allocated channel: c1
channel c1: SID=321 device type=SBT_TAPE
channel c1: NMDA Oracle v1.1.0

sent command to channel: c1

How to catalog backuppiece on tape...


Add SBT_TAPE configuration:
RMAN> configure default device type to 'SBT_TAPE';
RMAN> configure channel device type 'SBT_TAPE' send '[MML PARAMETERS]';

Catalog backuppiece:
RMAN> catalog device type 'SBT_TAPE' backuppiece '[BACKUP NAME]';

To clear configuration:
RMAN> configure channel device type ‘SBT_TAPE’ clear;


My example:

Set configuration:
RMAN> configure default device type to 'SBT_TAPE';
RMAN> configure channel device type 'SBT_TAPE'
2> send 'NSR_ENV=(NSR_SERVER=backup_server,NSR_CLIENT=oracle_client,NSR_DATA_VOLUME=OrclPool)';
new RMAN configuration parameters:
CONFIGURE CHANNEL DEVICE TYPE 'SBT_TAPE' SEND  'NSR_ENV=(NSR_SERVER=backup_server,NSR_CLIENT=oracle_client,NSR_DATA_VOLUME=OrclPool)';
new RMAN configuration parameters are successfully stored

Catalog backuppiece:
RMAN> catalog device type 'SBT_TAPE' backuppiece 'ARCH_ORCL_rep2dod5_s128878_p1';

allocated channel: ORA_SBT_TAPE_1
channel ORA_SBT_TAPE_1: SID=321 device type=SBT_TAPE
channel ORA_SBT_TAPE_1: NMDA Oracle v1.1.0
cataloged backup piece
backup piece handle=ARCH_ORCL_rep2dod5_s128878_p1 RECID=127894 STAMP=841419878

Clear configuration:
RMAN> CONFIGURE CHANNEL DEVICE TYPE 'SBT_TAPE' CLEAR;

old RMAN configuration parameters:
CONFIGURE CHANNEL DEVICE TYPE 'SBT_TAPE' SEND  'NSR_ENV=(NSR_SERVER=backup_server,NSR_CLIENT=oracle_client,NSR_DATA_VOLUME=OrclPool)';
old RMAN configuration parameters are successfully deleted
