Backup & Recovery

Backup & Recovery: Backup and Recovery is one of the most important strategies one should define as an administration activity. Backup Types: Information backup categories: • Configuration backup • Data backup Configuration Backup After installing Oracle s !yperion soft"are# you must configure the components. Configuration Information includes but is not limited to: database location# log settings# $eb server Configuration and port numbers. Configuration information is stored in the: • Registry • Configuration files %generally "ith .properties e&tensions' • Configuration .()* files • Directory structure In general# configuration backup can be used only in limited cases Database Backup Types +ou can use several types of database backup# depending on your computing environment. Logical Export In principle# logical e&port generates necessary ,-* statements to obtain all the data from all tables# and in most cases# "rites to a binary file. *ogical e&port does not contain database instance.related information such as the physical disk location# so it is possible to restore the same data on another database machine "ith a different setup. /eriodic logical e&ports %at least once a "eek' are useful if physical backups fail or the database machine is unavailable. Physical ull Backup /hysical backups are copies of physical database files. 0or e&ample# a physical backup might copy database content from a local disk drive to another secure location. A physical backup can be hot or cold: !ot backup12sers can make changes to the database during a hot backup. *og files of Changes made during the backup are saved# and the logged changes are applied to ,ynchroni3e the database and the backup copy. A hot backup is used "hen a full backup is needed and the service level does not allo" system do"ntime for a cold backup. Col" backup#2sers cannot make changes to the database during a cold backup# so the database and the backup copy are al"ays synchroni3ed. Cold backup is used only "hen the service level allo"s for the re4uired system do"ntime. +ou can perform a full or incremental physical backup: 5ote: A cold full physical backup is recommended.
