About this guide xiii


xiv IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and User’s Guide
Chapter 1. Introducing Data Protection for Oracle
This section provides a brief overview of Tivoli Storage Manager and Data
Protection for Oracle.

Understanding Tivoli Storage Manager


Tivoli Storage Manager is a client/server program that provides storage
management services in a multi-vendor, multi-platform computer environment.

Tivoli Storage Manager provides these functions:


v Reduces network complexity
Tivoli Storage Manager reduces network complexity with interfaces and
functions that span network environments. This provides consistency across
different operating systems and hardware.
v Increases administrator productivity
Tivoli Storage Manager can reduce the cost of network administration by
allowing administrators to perform these actions:
– Automate repetitive processes
– Schedule unattended processes
– Administer Tivoli Storage Manager from anywhere in the network
v Reduces the risk of data loss
Many users do not back up their data. Other users apply stand-alone backup
techniques with diskettes and tapes as the only protection for business data.
These backup systems often produce disappointing results during recovery
operations. Tivoli Storage Manager schedules routine backups that enable users
to recover from accidental data deletion without administrator involvement.
v Optimizes existing storage resources
Tivoli Storage Manager allows users to move files from client file systems to
Tivoli Storage Manager storage. This saves space on client file systems and can
eliminate the expense of upgrading client storage hardware.
Tivoli Storage Manager monitors client storage space and moves files from client
file systems to Tivoli Storage Manager storage if an out-of-space condition
threatens. This function can also eliminate the expense of client hardware
upgrades.

Tivoli Storage Manager provides these services:


v Backup and restore services
These services generate backup copies of data at specified intervals and restores
the data from these copies when required. These services protect against
workstation or file server media failure, accidental file deletion, data corruption,
data vandalism, or site disasters.
v Archive and retrieve services
These services provide backup-archive clients with point-in-time copies of data
for long-term storage.

© Copyright IBM Corp. 1997, 2008 1


v Server hierarchical storage management services
These services migrate client files from expensive storage media to less
expensive storage media (from disk to tape, for example). Administrator-defined
thresholds determine file migration for each storage pool. Migration applies to
all backup and archive client files.
v Automation services
Tivoli Storage Manager administrators can increase productivity by automating
common storage administration tasks.
v Administration services
Tivoli Storage Manager administration services provide support for routine
monitoring, administration, and accounting. Administrators can manage the
server from another system or the same system. The Tivoli Storage Manager
utilities allow the administrator to perform these functions:
– Set client and server options
– Define devices
– Format storage volumes
– Add additional clients
– Label tape volumes
Tivoli Storage Manager monitors scheduled operations and maintains status
information in the database. An administrator can export data to removable
media. This data can be imported by another server, making the export and
import features a convenient utility for moving server data. The administrator
can specify the accounting option generated at the end of each client session.
v Security services
Security services control user access to Tivoli Storage Manager data, storage,
policy definitions, and administrative commands.
v Disaster recovery management
Disaster recovery management helps the administrator implement a
comprehensive backup and recovery procedure for important business
applications, data, and records.

Overview of Data Protection for Oracle


| Data Protection for Oracle currently supports Oracle 9i, Oracle 10g, and Oracle 11g
| databases with the Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN). See Chapter 2, “Installing
| Data Protection for Oracle,” on page 5 for specific levels of supported Oracle
| databases.

RMAN and Data Protection for Oracle


RMAN provides consistent and secure backup, restore, and recovery performance
for Oracle databases. While the Oracle RMAN initiates a backup or restore, Data
Protection for Oracle acts as the interface to the Tivoli Storage Manager server .
The Tivoli Storage Manager server then applies administrator-defined storage
management policies to the data. Data Protection for Oracle implements the Oracle
defined Media Management application program interface (SBTAPI) 2.0. This
SBTAPI interfaces with RMAN and translates Oracle commands into Tivoli Storage
Manager API calls to the Tivoli Storage Manager server.

With the use of RMAN, Data Protection for Oracle allows you to perform the
following functions:
v Full and incremental backup function for the following while online or offline:
– Databases

2 IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and User’s Guide
– Tablespaces
– Datafiles
– Archive log files
– Control files
v Full database restores while offline
v Tablespace and datafile restore while online or offline

LAN-free data transfer


Data Protection for Oracle supports backup and restore operations in a LAN-free
environment. This environment shifts the movement of data from the
communications network to a storage area network (SAN). Data moves over the
SAN to a SAN-attached storage device by the Tivoli Storage Manager Storage
Agent. Running Data Protection for Oracle in a LAN-free environment avoids
constraints of the network and decreases the load on the Tivoli Storage Manager
server, allowing the server to support a greater number of simultaneous
connections.

Before enabling LAN-free support, you must install the Tivoli Storage Manager
Managed System for SAN Storage Agent on the same system as Data Protection
for Oracle. See the IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for SAN for your operating
environment for more information about LAN-free requirements.

Migration and coexistence


v Existing backups created using Data Protection for Oracle Version 2.2.0 and 2.2.1
are restorable using Data Protection for Oracle 5.5.1.
v Data Protection for Oracle relies heavily on the tdpo.opt file for accuracy in
setup and maintenance. The contents of the tdpo.opt file are different than the
environment variables used with Data Protection for Oracle Version 2.1.
Therefore, Version 2.1 RMAN scripts for environment variables are ignored. For
more information, see Chapter 3, “Configuring Data Protection for Oracle,” on
page 43 or “Scripts” on page 56.
| v Tivoli Storage Manager server Version 5.4.0 (or later) and the Tivoli Storage
| Manager API Version 5.5.0 (or later) are required.

Chapter 1. Introducing Data Protection for Oracle 3


4 IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and User’s Guide
Chapter 2. Installing Data Protection for Oracle
Review these guidelines and requirements before attempting to install Data
Protection for Oracle:
| v Tivoli Storage Manager server Version 5.4.0 (or later) is configured.
| v Tivoli Storage Manager API Version 5.5.0 (or later) is installed. The required
| version of the Tivoli Storage Manager API is included in the Data Protection for
| Oracle product media.
v Determine the appropriate Data Protection for Oracle bit size to use by
identifying the bit size of your Oracle target database. For example, if you are
using a 32-bit Oracle target database, you must use a 32-bit version of Data
Protection for Oracle. If you are using a 64-bit Oracle target database, you must
use a 64-bit version of Data Protection for Oracle. The Data Protection for Oracle
bit size is not determined by the bit size of your operating system.
v Any previous version of Data Protection for Oracle or the Tivoli Storage
Manager API must be uninstalled before installing a new or updated version. If
you are installing a PTF version of Data Protection for Oracle, do not remove the
license file from the previous version. The PTF driver does not contain a license.

Attention: A root user must install the Tivoli Storage Manager API before
installing Data Protection for Oracle on the workstation where the target database
resides.

After Data Protection for Oracle is installed, see Chapter 3, “Configuring Data
Protection for Oracle,” on page 43 for detailed task instructions you must perform
before attempting to back up data..

Note: If you would like to configure Data Protection for Oracle using default
settings, see Appendix A, “Quick configuration guide,” on page 67 for
instructions.

Chapter 2. Installing Data Protection for Oracle 41


42 IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and User’s Guide
Chapter 3. Configuring Data Protection for Oracle
After Data Protection for Oracle is successfully installed, you must complete the
following configuration tasks:
1. Define Data Protection for Oracle options in the tdpo.opt file.
2. Register the Data Protection for Oracle node to a Tivoli Storage Manager server.
3. Define Tivoli Storage Manager options in the dsm.opt and dsm.sys files.
4. Define Tivoli Storage Manager policy requirements.
5. Initialize the password with a Tivoli Storage Manager server.

Note: If you would like to configure Data Protection for Oracle using default
settings, see Appendix A, “Quick configuration guide,” on page 67 for
instructions.

1. Define Data Protection for Oracle options in the tdpo.opt file


The Data Protection for Oracle options file, tdpo.opt, contains options that
determine the behavior and performance of Data Protection for Oracle. The only
environment variable Data Protection for Oracle Version 5.5.1 recognizes within an
RMAN script is the fully qualified path name to the tdpo.opt file. Therefore, some
RMAN scripts may need to be edited to use TDPO_OPTFILE=fully qualified path
and file name of options file variable in place of other environment variables. For
example:
allocate channel t1 type ’sbt_tape’ parms
’ENV=(TDPO_OPTFILE=/home/rman/scripts/tdpo.opt)’

The TDPO_OPTFILE variable must be specified in upper case characters only. See
“Scripts” on page 56 for further information. Note that the allocate channel entry
is divided on two lines after the parms option to accommodate page formatting.

If a fully qualified path name is not provided, Data Protection for Oracle uses the
tdpo.opt file located in the Data Protection for Oracle default installation directory.
If this file does not exist, Data Protection for Oracle fails.

Considerations
v It is strongly recommended that you use the tdpo.opt file exclusively instead of
default parameters.
v RMAN and the tdpoconf and tdposync utilities use the options defined in the
tdpo.opt file.
v By default, the tdpo.opt file is located in the directory where Data Protection for
Oracle is installed.
v Data Protection for Oracle supports options (specified in the tdpo.opt file) in
both upper case or lower case type. However, the TDPO_OPTFILE variable
must be specified in upper case characters only.

Available options
The following options can be set in the tdpo.opt file:
dsmi_log
Specify the directory that contains the Data Protection for Oracle error log
file (tdpoerror.log). Note that if the Tivoli Storage Manager errorlogname
option is specified in the dsm.sys file (for the stanza used by Data
Protection for Oracle), the errorlogname option will override the value
specified by dsmi_log. If the errorlogname option is being used, make sure
that it specifies a file in a path that has write permissions.
For error log files, create a directory for the error logs and have the
dsmi_log option point to that directory. The user performing backups must
have writable rights to this directory.
dsmi_orc_config
Specify the complete path to the Tivoli Storage Manager client user options
file (dsm.opt) used during the Data Protection for Oracle session. If you do
not specify this option, Data Protection for Oracle looks for this options file
in the Data Protection for Oracle installation directory. You must specify
this option if your Tivoli Storage Manager client user options file is located
in a directory other than the Data Protection for Oracle installation
directory.
tdpo_fs
Specify a file space name on the Tivoli Storage Manager server for Data
Protection for Oracle backup, delete, and restore operations. The file space
name can contain a string of 1 to 1024 characters.
v The default file space name is adsmorc.
v When you have more than one Oracle database, use this option to back
up each Oracle target database to its own file space on the Tivoli Storage
Manager server.
v If this option was set during Data Protection for Oracle backup
operations, this option must be set during restore and delete operations.
v The file space name in the include/exclude statement must match the
file space name specified in the tdpo_fs option for include/exclude
processing to function correctly.
tdpo_owner
This option specifies a session-owner name and object owner name. The
value can contain a string of 1 to 64 characters. This value is case sensitive.
For restore and delete operations, this option must specify the same value
that was used during the Data Protection for Oracle backup. Do not set
this option when passwordaccess generate is specified.
tdpo_pswdpath
This option specifies the directory where the TDPO.nodename password
file is located. The default value is the directory where Data Protection for
Oracle is installed. Note that when passwordaccess generate is specified,
Data Protection for Oracle uses the value of the passworddir option
specified in the dsm.sys file and does NOT use the tdpo_pswdpath option.
However, the directory specified by the passworddir option must be a
directory that is writeable by the Oracle user. The Oracle user is the User
ID of the target Oracle database instance.
tdpo_node
Specify the Data Protection for Oracle node name used during operations
with the Tivoli Storage Manager server. The node name can contain a

44 IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and User’s Guide
string of 1 to 64 characters. It is recommended that you use a node name
that is different from the backup-archive client node name.
Be aware that it is the Tivoli Storage Manager API (and not Data Protection
for Oracle) that negotiates which login credentials (nodename, password)
to use with the Tivoli Storage Manager server. As a result, certain option
settings affect password management. For example, when the tdpo_node
option is specified (in the tdpo.opt file) and passwordaccess prompt is
specified (in the dsm.sys file), the Tivoli Storage Manager API uses the
value of the tdpo_node option and ignores the value of the nodename
option (specified in the dsm.sys file). However, when the tdpo_node option
is not specified and passwordaccess prompt is specified, the Tivoli Storage
Manager API attempts to automatically generate a password (by default),
even though passwordaccess prompt is specified. In this situation,
processing ends and an error message displays. To avoid receiving an error
message, make sure you follow these recommendations:
v When passwordaccess prompt is specified in the dsm.sys file, specify the
tdpo_node option in the tdpo.opt file.
v When passwordaccess generate is specified in the dsm.sys file, do NOT
specify the tdpo_node option in the tdpo.opt file.
To restore data from one Oracle server to another Oracle server using Data
Protection for Oracle, be aware of the following tdpo_node considerations:
v The value of the tdpo_node option in the tdpo.opt file on the target
Oracle server must equal the value of the tdpo_node option in the
tdpo.opt file on the source Oracle server.
v If passwordaccess prompt is specified for the backup, then
passwordaccess prompt must be specified for the restore. For example, if
passwordaccess prompt is specified in the dsm.sys file on the target
Oracle server, run the tdpoconf password command to create the
password locally on the source Oracle server.
v If passwordaccess generate is specified for the backup, then
passwordaccess generate must be specified for the restore. Be aware that
if the password for the Data Protection for Oracle node is unknown (due
to the passwordaccess generate setting), you can reset the password for
the production node on the Tivoli Storage Manager server. Then, after
the password is reset, use the new password to run the tdpoconf
password command on both the production machine (to set the
password for the next backup) and the alternate machine (to set the
password for the restore).
v Data Protection for Oracle and the Tivoli Storage Manager API must be
at the same levels on both the source Oracle server and the target Oracle
server.
tdpo_date_fmt
This option specifies the format you want to use to display dates. You can
specify a number between 0 and 5 inclusively. The default value is 1.
0 Use the locale-specified date format.
1 MM/DD/YYYY (Default)
2 DD-MM-YYYY
3 YYYY-MM-DD
4 DD.MM.YYYY
5 YYYY.MM.DD

Chapter 3. Configuring Data Protection for Oracle 45


tdpo_num_fmt
This option specifies the format you want to use to display numbers. You
can specify a number between 1 and 6 inclusively. The default value is 1.
1 1,000.00 (Default)
2 1,000,00
3 1 000,00
4 1 000.00
5 1.000,00
6 1’000,00
tdpo_time_fmt
This option specifies the format you want to use to display time. You can
specify a number between 0 and 4 inclusively. The default value is 1.
0 Use the locale-specified time format.
1 23:00:00 (Default)
2 23,00,00
3 23.00.00
4 12:00:00 A/P
tdpo_mgmt_class_2
This option specifies the second management class used for copy 2 in the
RMAN duplex copy command.
tdpo_mgmt_class_3
This option specifies the third management class used for copy 3 in the
RMAN duplex copy command.
tdpo_mgmt_class_4
This option specifies the fourth management class used for copy 4 in the
RMAN duplex copy command. Four copies is the maximum allowed by
RMAN.

Note: It is recommended that you review “Using the Duplex Copy function” on
page 56 for specific details on using management class options.

2. Register the Data Protection for Oracle node to a Tivoli Storage


Manager server
The Data Protection for Oracle node name and password (if required) must be
registered to the Tivoli Storage Manager server before you can begin requesting
backup and restore services. The process of setting up a node name and password
with the Tivoli Storage Manager server is called registration.

The following information is needed to register Data Protection for Oracle with the
Tivoli Storage Manager server:
v The Data Protection for Oracle node name
This is the node name that identifies the instance on which Data Protection for
Oracle is installed. It is recommended that you use a separate and unique node
name for Data Protection for Oracle. This prevents any confusion with an
existing Tivoli Storage Manager backup-archive client on the same workstation.
v The initial password
This is the password you want to use, if a password is required.

The following information is defined by the Tivoli Storage Manager administrator:

46 IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and User’s Guide
v The policy domain to which your client node belongs.
A policy domain contains policy sets and management classes that control how
Tivoli Storage Manager manages the objects you back up. Rather than binding
Data Protection for Oracle backups to a different management class, it is
recommended that a unique policy domain be defined for Data Protection for
Oracle node names. These backups can be bound to the default management
class within this unique policy domain. Rather than binding a different
management class for Oracle backups, it is also recommended that you specify a
different domain for Oracle backups with a separate management class.
v The authority to enable compression.
The Tivoli Storage Manager administrator can specify the server to compress
files. If the Tivoli Storage Manager administrator specifies that the compression
decision belongs to the client (compression client), you must specify compression
yes in the client system options file (dsm.sys) in order for the Data Protection for
Oracle node to be able to compress objects before sending them to the Tivoli
Storage Manager server.
| v The authority to delete backup data from Tivoli Storage Manager storage.
| The Data Protection for Oracle node can only delete backed up data from Tivoli
| Storage Manager storage if the Tivoli Storage Manager administrator registers
| the node with backdelete authority. Specify the following option to allow
| backdelete authority:
| backdelete yes
| Note that when backdelete no is specified and a deletion request is made, the
| request fails and an error message displays. Therefore, specify backdelete yes for
| the object to be immediately removed from the Tivoli Storage Manager server
| when the next inventory expiration occurs. This expiration also makes the
| previously used storage space available for new use.

3. Define Tivoli Storage Manager options in the dsm.opt and dsm.sys


files
You must define some Tivoli Storage Manager options after the Data Protection for
Oracle node is registered to the Tivoli Storage Manager server:
v These options are defined in the Tivoli Storage Manager client system options
file (dsm.sys by default) and client user options file (dsm.opt by default).
v Note that the Tivoli Storage Manager client user options file (dsm.opt by default)
you must edit for Data Protection for Oracle is located in the directory specified
by the dsmi_orc_config option. If this option is not specified, Data Protection for
Oracle looks for this options file in the Data Protection for Oracle installation
directory.
v The Tivoli Storage Manager client system options file (dsm.sys by default) must
be located in the directory where the Tivoli Storage Manager API is installed.
v Data Protection for Oracle provides sample Tivoli Storage Manager options files
that you can modify for this purpose. These sample files are located in the Data
Protection for Oracle installation directory.
v The Tivoli Storage Manager administrator can provide you with the TCP server
address (tcpserveraddress) and communication method (commmethod) for
connecting Data Protection for Oracle to the Tivoli Storage Manager server.

Chapter 3. Configuring Data Protection for Oracle 47


Required options
Specify these options in the Tivoli Storage Manager client system options file
(dsm.sys by default) located in the directory where the Tivoli Storage Manager API
is installed:
passwordaccess
Specify whether you want to generate your password automatically or be
prompted to enter your password. You can specify one of the following
values:
prompt You are prompted to enter your password during each session.
This is the default value. When specifying passwordaccess prompt
in the dsm.sys file, set the following values in the tdpo.opt file:
tdpo_node <node name>
tdpo_owner <tdpo owner name>
tdpo_pswdpath (optional) <path to password file>

After specifying these values, use the tdpoconf password


command (as root user) to create the password and password file
(TDPO.nodename) on the local machine. Be aware that when
passwordaccess prompt is specified, the user must be aware of the
password expiration date. A backup failure may occur if the
password is allowed to expire. To allow the Tivoli Storage Manager
API to manage the password, specify passwordaccess generate.
generate
The Tivoli Storage Manager API manages all password actions
after the password is created using the tdpoconf password
command. The Tivoli Storage Manager API stores and manages the
password and automatically generates a new password when the
current password expires. This method of password management
is useful when running unattended scheduled backups because it
ensures that the backup never fails due to an expired password.
When specifying passwordaccess generate, set the following values
in the in the dsm.sys file:
passwordaccess generate
passworddir <directory owned and writable by Oracle owner>
nodename <node name>

However, do NOT specify the following options in the tdpo.opt file


when specifying passwordaccess generate:
v tdpo_node
v tdpo_owner
v tdpo_pswdpath
After specifying passwordaccess generate and the other appropriate
values in the dsm.sys file, run the tdpoconf password command
(as the Oracle user) to create the encrypted password in the
TSM.PWD file.
servername
Specify the name you want to use to identify a stanza that contains the
options used for connecting to the Tivoli Storage Manager server. Although

48 IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and User’s Guide
the name does not have to be the actual name of a Tivoli Storage Manager
server, the name must match the name specified by the servername option
in the dsm.opt file.
tcpserveraddress
Specify the TCP/IP address (in the stanza) for the Tivoli Storage Manager
| server to be used for Oracle backups. When the Tivoli Storage Manager
| server that is specified with the tcpserveraddress option uses a non-default
| port for communication, specify the correct port in the stanza with the
| tcpport option.
commmethod
Specify the communication method for Data Protection for Oracle to
communicate with the Tivoli Storage Manager server. Note that this option
requires other Tivoli Storage Manager options, depending on the
communication method you specify.

Specify this option in the Tivoli Storage Manager client user options file (dsm.opt
by default) located in the directory specified by the dsmi_orc_config option:
servername
Specify a Tivoli Storage Manager server stanza name that matches the
name specified by the servername option in your client system options file
(dsm.sys by default) that is used to contact Data Protection for Oracle for
backup services.

Other options to consider


It is recommended that you specify these options in the Tivoli Storage Manager
client system options file, dsm.sys:
compression
Specify whether the Tivoli Storage Manager API compresses data before
sending it to the Tivoli Storage Manager server. You can specify yes or no.
The default value is yes. The value of the compression option for Data
Protection for Oracle is honored only if the Tivoli Storage Manager
administrator leaves the compression decision to the node. Enabling
compression affects performance in three ways:
v CPU utilization is higher on the machine on which Data Protection for
Oracle is running.
v Network bandwidth utilization is lower because fewer bytes are
transmitted.
v Storage usage on the Tivoli Storage Manager server is reduced.
Considerations: It is recommended that you specify yes when any of the
following conditions exist:
v The network adapter has a data overload.
v Communications between Data Protection for Oracle and the Tivoli
Storage Manager server are over a low bandwidth connection.
v There is heavy network traffic.
It is recommended that you specify no when any of the following
conditions exist:
v The machine running Data Protection for Oracle has a CPU overload.
The added CPU usage (as a result of enabling compression) can impact
other applications, including the Oracle server.

Chapter 3. Configuring Data Protection for Oracle 49


v You are not constrained by network bandwidth. In this case, you can
achieve the best performance by specifying compression no and enabling
hardware compaction on the tape drive, which also reduces storage
requirements.
v Hardware compression is in use for the media where Data Protection for
Oracle data resides.
| After a completed backup operation, view the throughput rate and the
| compression status for a backup object in the Tivoli Storage Manager
| server activity log file. Run the Tivoli Storage Manager server QUERY
| ACTLOG command in the Tivoli Storage Manager server administrative
| client window. Be aware that the throughput rate and the compression
| status are not written to the activity log when activity logging is disabled
| on the Tivoli Storage Manager server. See the SET ACTLOGRETENTION
| command in the Tivoli Storage Manager Administrator's Reference for
| complete activity logging information.
enablelanfree
| Specify whether you run backup operations in a LAN-free environment if
| you are equipped to do so. You can specify yes or no. The default value is
| no. You can avoid network constraints by shifting the movement of data to
| a storage area network (SAN). After a completed backup operation, view
| the LAN-free status for a backup object in the Tivoli Storage Manager
| server activity log file. For more information, see the appropriate Storage
| Agent User’s Guide.
include
Add an include statement to the dsm.sys file (used by the Oracle node)
when a management class (other than the default management class) is
defined within an existing policy domain. This include statement binds the
Oracle backup objects to the management class that is defined for
managing these objects. The include statement uses the following naming
convention:
/FilespaceName//ObjectName

The FORMAT parameter in the RMAN script can also be used to assist
with object naming. For example, if the FORMAT parameters (in the
RMAN script) specified the following values for databases and logs:
format ’DB_%u_%p_%c’
format ’LOG_%u_%p_%c’

The include statement in the dsm.sys file (used by the Oracle node) would
be as follows:
INCLUDE /adsmorc/.../DB* mgmtclassnameforDBs
INCLUDE /adsmorc/.../LOG* mgmtclassnameforLogs

| Make sure the FORMAT parameter specifies a unique name for the
| backup. If the object name already exists on the Tivoli Storage Manager
| server, the backup might fail with a RC=8 error recorded in the sbtio.log
| file.
enableclientencryptkey
When enableclientencryptkey is set to yes, Data Protection for Oracle
provides 128-bit transparent encryption of Oracle databases during backup
and restore processing. One random encryption key is generated per
session and is stored on the Tivoli Storage Manager server with the object
in the server database. Although Tivoli Storage Manager manages the key,
a valid database must be available in order to restore an encrypted object.
50 IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and User’s Guide
You can specify the databases you want encrypted by adding an include
statement with the include.encrypt option in the dsm.sys file.
For example, to enable transparent encryption, set the following options in
the client system options file, dsm.sys:
1. Specify enableclientencryptkey yes.
2. Specify encryptiontype AES128 (recommended) or DES56.
3. Specify the objects to encrypt. This example encrypts all data:
include.encrypt /adsmorc/.../*
Thus, the encryption options in this client system options file, dsm.sys
would be as follows:
enableclientencryptkey yes
encryptiontype aes128
include.encrypt /adsmorc/.../*
| After a completed backup operation, view the encryption status for a
| backup object in the Tivoli Storage Manager server activity log file. Run
| the Tivoli Storage Manager server QUERY ACTLOG command in the
| Tivoli Storage Manager server administrative client window. A message
| similar to the following will be available:
| 02/04/08
| 16:23:08
| ANE4991I (Session: 7, Node: ANDREW) TDP Oracle AIX
| ANU0599 TDP for Oracle: (426106): =>() ANU2526I Backup
| details for backup piece /dp_oracle//2jj7sk9s_1_1 (database
| "testdb"). Total bytes sent: 770703360. Total processing
| time: 00:00:48. Throughput rate: 15680.00Kb/Sec.
| Compressed: Yes, 68%. Encryption: None. LAN-Free: No.
| (SESSION: 7)
||

See IBM Tivoli Storage Manager Using the Application Program Interface for
more details regarding the enableclientencryptkey option.

4. Define Tivoli Storage Manager policy requirements


RMAN uses the format parameter (in the RMAN script) to generate unique
backup file names. Because all backup objects inserted into the Tivoli Storage
Manager backup storage pool have unique file names, they never expire on the
Tivoli Storage Manager server. As a result, Data Protection for Oracle requires
these special Tivoli Storage Manager policy domain settings:
Backup copy group values
Data Protection for Oracle provides the tdposync utility to remove
unwanted backup objects from the Tivoli Storage Manager server. It is
recommended that the following Tivoli Storage Manager backup copy
group options be set:
v verdeleted 0
v retonly 0
Then, when Data Protection for Oracle marks a backup object inactive, that
object is deleted from the Tivoli Storage Manager server the next time
expiration processing occurs. A backup object is marked for immediate
expiration when you delete it through RMAN using the Data Protection for
Oracle interface or with the tdposync utility. Note that an inactive backup
object cannot be restored through RMAN using the Data Protection for
Oracle interface.

Chapter 3. Configuring Data Protection for Oracle 51


Notes:
| 1. The Tivoli Storage Manager administrator must also register your node
| by specifying backdelete yes in order for backup objects to be deleted.
| However, be aware that a backup object is marked for immediate
| expiration when backdelete yes and you delete it through RMAN using
| the Data Protection for Oracle interface or with the tdposync utility.
| Also note that when backdelete no is specified and a deletion request is
| made, the request fails and an error message displays.
2. The following backup copy group options are not applicable to Data
Protection for Oracle:
v frequency
v verexists
v retextra
v mode
v serialization
Data Protection for Oracle accepts default values for these options.
Management class
Tivoli Storage Manager uses management classes to manage backups on
the Tivoli Storage Manager server. When you back up a database, the
default management class for your node is used. Because the policy
requirements for Data Protection for Oracle may be different from the
desired settings for the regular Tivoli Storage Manager backup-archive
clients, you must have a different management class defined for Data
Protection for Oracle. It is recommended that you define a separate policy
domain where the default management class has the required settings and
then register all Data Protection for Oracle nodes to that domain.
If you choose to define a new management class within an existing policy
domain (not the default management class for that domain), then you must
add an include statement to the Data Protection for Oracle options file to
bind all objects to that management class.
The following steps assign a management class name orcbackup to all
Oracle backups with a default file space name adsmorc:
1. Add this inclexcl entry under the server stanza you use in the dsm.sys
file:
inclexcl /u01/oracle/include.def
2. Add this include entry to the /u01/oracle/include.def file:
include /adsmorc/.../* orcbackup

Note: The file space name in the include/exclude statement must


match the file space name defined with the tdpo_fs option. If a
file space name other than the default value (adsmorc) is used:
a. You must specify the file space name with the tdpo_fs option.
b. You must specify the file space name defined in the tdpo_fs
option in the include/exclude statement.
All the files backed up with a default file space name of adsmorc are
assigned to management class orcbackup.

Note: Data Protection for Oracle stores all objects as backup objects on Tivoli
Storage Manager storage, so an archive copy group is not required, although
it can exist.

52 IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and User’s Guide
See your Tivoli Storage Manager administrator or see the Tivoli Storage Manager
Administrator’s Guide for more information on defining or updating Tivoli Storage
Manager policy domains and copy groups.

5. Initialize the password with a Tivoli Storage Manager server


The administrator must run the tdpoconf utility program to set the password
before using Data Protection for Oracle. See “TDPOCONF” on page 60 for more
information.

Chapter 3. Configuring Data Protection for Oracle 53


54 IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and User’s Guide
Chapter 4. Using RMAN and Data Protection for Oracle
You can perform full or partial, offline or online backups with Oracle. Once you
identify which database to back up, Oracle locates all necessary files and sends
them to the Tivoli Storage Manager server through Data Protection for Oracle. As a
result, Data Protection for Oracle provides an interface between Oracle Media
Management API calls and Tivoli Storage Manager API routines.

Invoking RMAN
Invoke RMAN to back up and restore an Oracle database. In this example, the
catalog database contains a registered target database. Invoke RMAN with this
command:
$> rman target xxx/yyy@target rcvcat aaa/bbb@catalog
cmdfile bkdb.scr msglog bkdb.log

This starts RMAN in the sequence shown.


target xxx/yyy@target: connect to target database
using user xxx and password yyy with connect string target
rcvcat aaa/bbb@catalog: connect to catalog database
using user aaa and password bbb with connect string catalog
cmdfile bkdb.scr: run bkdb.scr script
msglog bkdb.log: log the output messages in bkdb.log

Note: In the above example, RMAN creates a log file (bkdb.log) in the current
working directory. If an error occurs, you will see the error stack in the log
file.

Attention: For backup and restore operations in a Linux environment, Oracle

Scripts
Data Protection for Oracle does not recognize environment variables specified in
an RMAN script. The only environment variable Data Protection for Oracle Version
5.5.1 recognizes within an RMAN script is the fully qualified path name to the
tdpo.opt file. Therefore, existing RMAN scripts may need to be edited to use
TDPO_OPTFILE=fully qualified path and file name of options file variable in place of
other environment variables. The TDPO_OPTFILE variable must be specified in
upper case characters only.

Script example
This backup script allocates two parallel connections to the Tivoli Storage Manager
server. The Tivoli Storage Manager server views these connections as two separate
sessions:
run
{
allocate channel t1 type ’sbt_tape’ parms
’ENV=(TDPO_OPTFILE=/ora91/scripts/tdpo.opt)’;
allocate channel t2 type ’sbt_tape’ parms
’ENV=(TDPO_OPTFILE=/ora91/scripts/tdpo.opt)’;

backup
filesperset 5
format ’df_%t_%s_%p’
(database);

Note: To back up to Tivoli Storage Manager using Data Protection for Oracle, you
must specify type ’sbt_tape’ in the RMAN script or within the global
RMAN configuration settings.
This restore script allocates one parallel connection to the Tivoli Storage Manager
server:
run
{
allocate channel t1 type ’sbt_tape’ parms
’ENV=(TDPO_OPTFILE=/home/oracle/tdpo.opt)’;
restore database;
recover database;
alter database open;
}
Notes:
1. The allocate channel entry is divided on two lines after the parms option to
accommodate page formatting.
2. The Oracle database must be in mount mode for the restore to succeed.

Using the Duplex Copy function


Data Protection for Oracle supports the Oracle Server Duplex backup feature. This
feature allows you to make up to four exact duplicate copies of a backup that can
be stored on different backup media. A different management class is required for
each backup copy. By default, the primary management class is the default
management class on the policy domain defined for the Data Protection for Oracle
node.

Note: It may be necessary to define the Oracle parameter value


(BACKUP_TAPE_IO_SLAVES=TRUE) in the init.ora file of the target

56 IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and User’s Guide
database for Data Protection for Oracle to use the duplex copy feature. Refer
to your Oracle documentation regarding the use of this Oracle parameter.

For example, to create four backup copies:


1. Specify the following option in the RMAN backup script:
set duplex 4
2. Define the following options in the tdpo.opt file:
v tdpo_mgmt_class_2
v tdpo_mgmt_class_3
v tdpo_mgmt_class_4
3. Run the RMAN backup script.
The following backup behavior occurs:
v The first backup copy is bound to the default management class to which the
node is registered.
v The second backup copy is bound to the management class defined by the
tdpo_mgmt_class_2 option.
v The third backup copy is bound to the management class defined by the
tdpo_mgmt_class_3 option.
v The fourth backup copy is bound to the management class defined by the
tdpo_mgmt_class_4 option.

Considerations
The duplex copy feature does not use include statements. It only uses the
management classes specified in the tdpo.opt file.
You will receive an error message if you specify set duplex 4 in the RMAN
backup script and do not define a sufficient number of tdpo_mgmt_class
options in the tdpo.opt file.
In order to place duplicate copies on different media:
– Make sure the storage pool information for each backup copy group within
the management classes is not the same.
– Make sure backups from these different storage pools are not migrated to the
same storage pool at a later time.
Be aware that duplicate data will be sent across the network.
Be aware that if you specify set duplex 4 and allocate one channel in the RMAN
backup script, RMAN will start four sessions to the Tivoli Storage Manager
server. Likewise, if you specify set duplex 4 and allocate two channels in the
RMAN backup script, RMAN will start eight sessions to the Tivoli Storage
Manager server.
The duplex copy feature sends the backup copies simultaneously. If the backup
destination is tape, the number of sessions will be multiples of the duplex
value. As a result, make sure RMAN does not start more sessions than the
maximum mount points allowed by the Tivoli Storage Manager server. The
node definition option on the Tivoli Storage Manager server (maxnummp)
determines the maximum number of mount points a client node is allowed to
use on the Tivoli Storage Manager server during a backup operation. You can
view the maximum mount points allowed by the Tivoli Storage Manager server
for a particular node by entering the query node command from a Tivoli
Storage Manager Administrative Client prompt:
q node f=d

See the appropriate Tivoli Storage Manager Administrator’s Reference for more
information regarding this option.

Chapter 4. Using RMAN and Data Protection for Oracle 57


It is highly recommended that you review your current Oracle documentation
regarding the duplex backup function.

Removing old backups


Data Protection for Oracle uses the Tivoli Storage Manager backup repository. Each
database backup creates a new object with a unique name. Since these objects have
unique names, they always remain active and never expire. This allows the
Database Administrator (DBA) to control and coordinate copies removed from the
Tivoli Storage Manager server with RMAN. The Tivoli Storage Manager
administrator must specify backdelete=yes when registering your node in order for
you to be able to delete backup objects.

Note: Make sure to use the same tdpo.opt file that was used for the original
backup. This enables the backup objects to be found on the Tivoli Storage
Manager server.

Example
To remove an old backup, issue this command from the RMAN prompt:
run
{
allocate channel for delete type ’sbt_tape’ parms
’ENV=(TDPO_OPTFILE=/orc91/scripts/tdpo.opt)’;

change backupset backupset number delete;

See the Oracle RMAN manual for more information on the change command and
its options.

58 IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and User’s Guide
Chapter 5. Using the utilities
This chapter describes how to use the Data Protection for Oracle utilities (tdpoconf
and tdposync) from the command line interface. These utilities are located in the
directory where Data Protection for Oracle is installed.
v The tdpoconf utility is used for password maintenance and general Data
Protection for Oracle setup and maintenance.
v The tdposync utility is used to delete the Oracle backups on the Tivoli Storage
Manager server which are not in the RMAN catalog. This occurs when backups
have inadvertently not been deleted from the Tivoli Storage Manager server.

Command line syntax and characteristics


The Data Protection for Oracle utilities use the following command line syntax:
tdpoconf <command> <0 or more optional parameters>
tdposync <command> <0 or more optional parameters>

The command line parameters have the following characteristics:


v Minimum abbreviations for keywords are indicated in upper case.
v Optional parameters begin with a dash (-).
v Optional parameters can appear in any order.
v Some keyword parameters require a value separated by the equal sign (=).
v If a parameter requires more than one value, the values are separated with
commas.
v A space separates the invocation from the command and the command from any
optional parameters.
v Each parameter is separated from others by a space.
v If a parameter value includes spaces, the entire parameter must be enclosed in
double quotes.

TDPOCONF
This utility provides setup tasks to ease the configuration of Data Protection for
Oracle. The utility uses the tdpo.opt file in the installation directory to centralize
information for setup purposes.

Two commands are available using the tdpoconf utility:


v PASSWord
v SHOWENVironment
A description of these two commands and their parameters follows.

Password command
Use the password command to create a new password or change an existing
password on the Tivoli Storage Manager server. You are prompted to enter both
the old and new passwords when you invoke this utility.

Be aware of the following requirements based on the value of the passwordaccess


setting in the dsm.sys file:
passwordaccess prompt
Run the tdpoconf password command as the root user. This command
creates an encrypted password file, TDPO.Nodename. The Nodename value
will be the value specified by the tdpo_node option in the Data Protection
for Oracle options file specified with the TDPO_OPTFILE variable. This
file is located in the directory specified by the tdpo_pswdpath option. If
the tdpo_pswdpath option is not specified, the TDPO.Nodename file is
placed in the Data Protection for Oracle installation directory. Make sure
that the TDPO.Nodename file can be read by the Oracle user that performs
the backup.
passwordaccess generate
Run the tdpoconf password command as the Oracle user. The password is
placed in the file, TSM.PWD, and is owned by the Oracle user. This
TSM.PWD file is created in the directory specified by the passworddir
option defined in the dsm.sys file. Do not specify the tdpo_node option in
the tdpo.opt file. Data Protection for Oracle uses the value of the nodename
option specified in the dsm.sys file. If the tdpo_pswdpath option is
specified in the tdpo.opt file, it is ignored. See the description of the
tdpo_pswdpath option in “Available options” on page 44 for more
information.

Syntax
 TDPOCONF PASSWord 
installed tdpo.opt
-TDPO_OPTFILE=
pathname

Optional parameters
-TDPO_OPTFILE=pathname
This parameter specifies the fully qualified path name to the tdpo.opt file.
If you choose not to specify this option, the default path is used.

Example
This is an output example of the tdpoconf password command:

***************************************************************

Please enter current password:

Please enter new password:

Please reenter new password for verification:

ANU0260I Password successfully changed.

Showenvironment command
Use the showenvironment command to query the Tivoli Storage Manager server
using the options set in –TDPO_OPTFILE, the tdpo.opt file in the default
installation directory, or the default values set by Data Protection for Oracle. The
screen output displays information about the Tivoli Storage Manager API and
Tivoli Storage Manager server. This command is useful when troubleshooting Data
Protection for Oracle setup. If, for example, the password file is not initialized
properly, tdpoconf showenvironment reports this error immediately and prevents
complications that can arise if this error were to go undetected.

Note: For initial setup, it is recommended that you direct the output to a file with
the –outfile option to ensure that the desired environment is set correctly
before using RMAN.

Syntax
 TDPOCONF SHOWENVironment 
installed tdpo.opt
-TDPO_OPTFILE=
pathname

 
-OUTfile= pathname

Optional parameters
-TDPO_OPTFILE=pathname
This parameter specifies the fully qualified path name to the tdpo.opt file.
This is the options file that is used by the utilities and the Data Protection
for Oracle library.
-OUTfile=pathname
This parameter specifies the fully qualified path name to the output file.
The formatted text of this file is the same content that appears as output to
the screen.

Example
Below is an output example of the tdpoconf showenvironment command:
| DATA PROTECTION FOR ORACLE INFORMATION

| Compression: YES

Note: The Server Name: value above identifies the Tivoli Storage Manager server
stanza in the dsm.sys file, not the actual name of the Tivoli Storage Manager
server.

TDPOSYNC
Attention: Deleted files and inactive files cannot be restored! When using this
utility to delete files, ensure that you do not log on under the wrong node name,
query a different database than intended, and delete files in error. Double-check
the node name listed at the top of the PICK window. See “Optional parameters”
on page 64 and “PICK Window” on page 65 for further details.

The tdposync utility checks for items on the Tivoli Storage Manager server that are
not in the RMAN catalog. This utility allows you to repair such discrepancies
between the Tivoli Storage Manager server and the RMAN catalog. By thus
removing unwanted objects in Tivoli Storage Manager storage, you can reclaim
space on the server.

When an RMAN deletion script is run, RMAN deletes entries in the recovery
catalog before confirmation from the Tivoli Storage Manager server. In cases where
objects are not found on the Tivoli Storage Manager server, RMAN tries to delete
backup sets from the Tivoli Storage Manager server and fails. However, the entries
in the RMAN catalog for these objects are still removed. When this happens,
RMAN can no longer identify these backups through the catalog even though the
file still exists on the Tivoli Storage Manager server. This utility therefore
synchronizes the contents of the servers.

Be aware that when the RMAN catalog contains backups marked as expired,
RMAN still considers these objects as existing. If tdposync is invoked against these
objects, it will recognize these objects in the RMAN catalog and on the Tivoli
Storage Manager server and consider them to be in sync. Therefore, it is necssary
to delete these objects from the RMAN catalog in order for them to be deleted
from the Tivoli Storage Manager server. Use the Oracle crosscheck command to
verify whether the backups exist. Then, use the Oracle delete expired command to
remove their record from the RMAN catalog.

When you invoke tdposync, the utility does the following:


| 1. Prompts you for the RMAN catalog owner ID, password, and connect string
2. Gathers information for the Oracle server(s)
3. Queries the Oracle backup catalog and the Tivoli Storage Manager server
4. Displays formatted output to the screen (files that exist on Tivoli Storage
Manager but not in the RMAN catalog)

62 IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and User’s Guide
5. Prompts you to do one of the following:
v Delete any files found causing the discrepancy.
v Delete all files.
v Exit the program without deleting files from the Tivoli Storage Manager
server.

Considerations
The following information must be considered before using the tdposync
command:
v Resynchronize Oracle catalogs with the target databases before running the
tdposync syncdb command. First, connect to the target database and the catalog
database. The following is an example:
$ rman target xxx/yyy@targetdb rcvcat xxx/yyy@catalogdb

When you are connected to both databases, type resync catalog at the RMAN
prompt.
| v If the information for sqlplus that you provide to tdposync is incorrect (such as
| logon, password, or connect string information), sqlplus stops at its logon
| screen. You will need to log on again at the prompt using the RMAN catalog
| owner ID, password, and connect string. For example:
| login/password@connectstring

| where connectstring represents the Oracle database in which to connect. The


| connectstring is also sometimes referred to as the Transparent Network
| Substrate (TNS) alias. When the correct input is entered, tdposync proceeds.
v By default, Data Protection for Oracle prompts you to synchronize with one
Oracle catalog at a time. However, if you use multiple Oracle catalogs to back
up multiple target databases to the same file space, the same node name, and
the same owner name on the same Tivoli Storage Manager server, you must use
–numcatalogs=number. This is necessary so that tdposync has all the information
to correctly query both Oracle and Tivoli Storage Manager.
If, for example, you back up only one target database using two catalogs, you do
not need to specify this option. However, if you back up two target databases
using two catalogs (one catalog for each) to the same Tivoli Storage Manager
server under the same file space, node name, and owner name, you must specify
numcatalogs. If you fail to provide information for the second target database
(by not specifying two catalogs), that database will be displayed as eligible for
deletion.For more information , see “Optional parameters” on page 64.
Attention: Failure to provide all pertinent and correct information can result in
erroneous output. To prevent this, see the next consideration.
v If you have more than one Oracle database, back up each Oracle target database
to its own file space on the Tivoli Storage Manager server. To do this, use the
tdpo_fs option in the tdpo.opt file. In addition, it is highly recommended that
you use a separate Data Protection for Oracle options file for each database that
you back up to Tivoli Storage Manager. In this way, it is only necessary to
synchronize one catalog at a time (once for each target database), thus
minimizing the display of wrong information in the PICK window.
v Make sure to use the same tdpo.opt file that was used for the original backup.

Chapter 5. Using the utilities 63


Syncdb Command
This is the only command available to tdposync utility.

Syntax
 TDPOSYNC syncdb 
installed tdpo.opt
-TDPO_OPTFILE=
pathname

 
1
-NUMCATalogs=
number

Optional parameters
-TDPO_OPTFILE=pathname
This parameter specifies the fully qualified path name to the tdpo.opt file.
This is the options file that is used by the utilities and the Data Protection
for Oracle library. This file contains the information for the Tivoli Storage
Manager server name and address that tdposync needs for synchronizing.

Note: For syncdb TDPO_OPTFILE, you must specify the same options file
values that were used to perform the original backup operations.
-NUMCATalogs=number
This parameter specifies the number of Oracle catalog databases that you
want to synchronize and prompts you for information for each catalog that
exists on your node. Specify this option only when you use multiple Oracle
catalogs to back up multiple target databases to the same Tivoli Storage
Manager server under the same file space, node name, and owner name.
According to the number you specify for -numcatalogs, you are prompted
for the user name, password, and connect string for each. If you do not
specify -numcatalogs, the default is 1, and you are prompted only once.

For each catalog, you are prompted for the following information:
v Catalog # User Name:
v Catalog # Password:
v Catalog # Connect String:
You are also prompted for the following date information to narrow your search:
v From Date: (MM/DD/YYYY)
v To Date: (MM/DD/YYYY)
If no dates are specified, Data Protection for Oracle displays all objects that are not
in sync.

Example
This is an output example of the tdposync syncdb command:
Catalog 1 User Name: rman

Catalog 1 Password: rman

Catalog 1 Connect String: rman

64 IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and User’s Guide
From Date (MM/DD/YYYY): 01/01/2007

To Date (MM/DD/YYYY): 01/11/2007

PICK Window
The PICK window provides the following useful information to help you decide if
the files displayed are indeed out of synchronization with the Oracle catalog:
v The node with which you are querying the Tivoli Storage Manager server
v The date of the file backup
v The size of the backup
v The backup name (/fs//backup file name)

Attention: Use caution when selecting files for deletion. If you are unsure that
the files in question are really out of synchronization, do further research before
deleting them. Once you delete files, they cannot be restored.

Example: This is an example output of the PICK window:

68 IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and User’s Guide
Appendix B. Using the Tivoli Storage Manager scheduler
This section describes how to use the Tivoli Storage Manager scheduler with Data
Protection for Oracle to automate online backups of Oracle server databases. The
example illustrates the use of the Tivoli Storage Manager Version 5.5
backup-archive client scheduler.

Considerations
The Tivoli Storage Manager backup–archive client must reside on the same
machine as Data Protection for Oracle for the Tivoli Storage Manager scheduler
to function.

After Data Protection for Oracle has been registered to a Tivoli Storage Manager
server and installed on the Oracle server, perform these steps:
1. On the Tivoli Storage Manager server:
a. Define a schedule to run an AIX, HP-UX, Linux, or Solaris scheduler
backup script (schedbkdb.scr) in the policy domain to which Data
Protection for Oracle is registered.
b. Associate the Data Protection for Oracle node to the defined schedule.
2. On the machine where Data Protection for Oracle is installed:
a. Create a single dsm.sys file from which to associate nodes for your client,
Data Protection for Oracle, and scheduled backups.
b. Create the scheduler backup script (schedbkdb.scr). This is the script that
the Tivoli Storage Manager scheduler invokes directly.
c. Create a command script (mysched.scr). This is the script that contains the
Oracle environment information and invokes the RMAN backup script.
d. Create the RMAN backup script (bkdb.scr). This is the script that actually
performs the Oracle RMAN backup.
e. Start the scheduler.

Setting up a schedule
For consistency, this procedure uses specific information. However, you can define
a command file with any set of commands you choose. This allows you to use the
same command file to define schedules on other Tivoli Storage Manager servers.
All command information is presented as command-line interface entries.

This schedule in this procedure contains the following settings:


v The Data Protection for Oracle node name is NodeA1.
v The password for node name NodeA1 is PasswordA1.
v The policy domain to which node name NodeA1 is registered is PolicyA1.
v The schedule is a daily backup of an online Oracle database.
v The scheduled backup begins between 9:00 and 9:15 PM.

© Copyright IBM Corp. 1997, 2008 69


Part I: On the Tivoli Storage Manager server
1. Define the following schedule on the Tivoli Storage Manager server. You can
enter the command on the Tivoli Storage Manager server console or on an
Administrative Client. The Administrative Client does not have to be running
on the same system as the Tivoli Storage Manager server.
define schedule PolicyA1 daily_orcbkup description="08Daily Online DB Backup"
action=command objects="/usr/tivoli/tsm/client/oracle/sched/schedbkdb.scr"
starttime=21:00 duration=15 durunits=minutes period=1 perunits=day
dayofweek=any
The following message must display before proceeding to Step 2:
ANR2500I Schedule daily_orcbkup defined in policy domain PolicyA1.

2. Issue the following command to associate the Data Protection for Oracle node
to the backup schedule defined in Step 1:
define association PolicyA1 daily_orcbkup NodeA1
The following message must display before proceeding to Part II:
ANR2510I Node NodeA1 associated with schedule orc_dailybkup
in policy domain PolicyA1.

Summary:
v A backup schedule is now defined on the Tivoli Storage Manager server.
v The backup schedule will run the scheduler backup script (schedbkdb.scr),
which will run the command script (mysched.scr), which will run the RMAN
backup script (bkdb.scr) located in the /home/oracle/sched directory.
v The backup is performed once a day around 9:00 PM.
v The backup schedule can start on any day of the week.
v You can run the Tivoli Storage Manager query schedule and query
association commands to confirm that the schedule and node association are
set correctly.

Part II: On the client machine (NodeA1)


This example assumes:
v The Tivoli Storage Manager backup-archive client is installed on NodeA1 in the
/usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin directory.
v Data Protection for Oracle is installed on NodeA1 in the /usr/tivoli/tsm/
client/oracle/bin64 directory.
v An AIX operating system is used.

It is recommended that the password expiration for the Data Protection for Oracle
node (NodeA1) be set to not expire. Otherwise the password will become out of
sync between Data Protection for Oracle and the scheduler. This can be done by
specifying passwordaccess generate. However, if passwordaccess prompt is already
specified, you can prevent password expiration by issuing the following command:
update node NodeA1 passexp=0

Scheduling Data Protection for Oracle backups with the Tivoli Storage Manager
scheduler requires special configuration issues to be addressed. This procedure
addresses this issue by creating a dsm.sys file from which to associate nodes for
your client, Data Protection for Oracle, and scheduled backups:
1. Create a dsm.sys file in the /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin directory (if one
does not already exist) and add the following servername stanzas:

70 IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and User’s Guide
a. Add a servername stanza for the file system backups associated with your
Tivoli Storage Manager backup-archive client.
For example:
servername TSMbackup
commmethod tcpip
tcpserveraddress site.xyzinc.com
tcpport 1500
nodename client
passwordaccess generate

The servername TSMbackup setting must be specified in the dsm.opt file


associated with the Tivoli Storage Manager backup-archive client. The
default directory location is /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/ba/bin.
b. Add a servername stanza for the backups associated with Data Protection
for Oracle.
For example:
servername TSMOracle
commmethod tcpip
tcpserveraddress site.xyzinc.com
tcpport 1500
nodename NodeA1
passwordaccess generate
passworddir /home/<oracle user>

Replace <oracle user> with the Oracle User ID of the target Oracle database
instance.The servername TSMOracle setting must be specified in the dsm.opt
file associated with Data Protection for Oracle. The default directory
location is /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/oracle/bin64. This dsm.opt file can
have a unique name, such as dsmoracle.opt. Make sure the dsmi_orc_config
option specifies the user options file (dsmoracle.opt in Step 1b) associated
with Data Protection for Oracle. For example:
dsmi_orc_config /usr/tivoli/tsm/client/oracle/bin64/dsmoracle.opt
c. Add a servername stanza for the scheduled backups associated with Data
Protection for Oracle.
For example:
servername DPSched
commmethod tcpip
tcpserveraddress site.xyzinc.com
tcpport 1500
nodename NodeA1
passwordaccess generate
passworddir /home/<oracle user>

Replace <oracle user> with the Oracle User ID of the target Oracle database
instance.
2. Make sure there is a symbolic link to this dsm.sys file so that the file is
available to the Tivoli Storage Manager API directory (/usr/tivoli/tsm/
client/api/bin64).
3. Create the scheduler backup script (schedbkdb.scr) in the /usr/tivoli/tsm/
client/oracle/sched/ directory. This is the scheduler backup script that was
defined for the scheduler in Step 1 in “Part I: On the Tivoli Storage Manager
server” on page 70. This scheduler backup script will run the command script
(mysched.scr), which will run the RMAN backup script (bkdb.scr). This is an
example of the scheduler backup script (schedbkdb.scr):
#!/bin/ksh
su - OracleUser -c /home/oracle/sched/mysched.scr

Appendix B. Using the Tivoli Storage Manager scheduler 71


4. Create the command script (mysched.scr) in the /home/oracle/sched/ directory.
This is an example of the command script (mysched.scr):
#!/bin/ksh
export ORACLE_HOME=/orc91/app/oracle/product/912
export PATH=$ORACLE_HOME/bin:$PATH
rman target agnttest/agnttest@target rcvcat rman/rman@rman
cmdfile /home/oracle/sched/bkdb.scr msglog /home/oracle/sched/bkdb.log

You must place the command text, rman target agnttest/agnttest@target


rcvcat rman/rman@rman and cmdfile /home/oracle/sched/bkdb.scr msglog
/home/oracle/sched/bkdb.log, on the same line in this command script. The
command text is placed on two lines in this example to accommodate page
formatting.
5. Create the RMAN backup script (bkdb.scr) in the /home/oracle/sched/
directory. This is an example of the RMAN backup script (bkdb.scr):
run {
allocate channel t1 type ’sbt_tape’ parms
’ENV=(TDPO_OPTFILE=/home/oracle/sched/tdpo.opt)’;
allocate channel t2 type ’sbt_tape’ parms
’ENV=(TDPO_OPTFILE=/home/oracle/sched/tdpo.opt)’;

backup
format ’df_%t_%s_%p_%u_%c’
(database); }
6. Login as the root user to the machine where Data Protection for Oracle is
installed as node name NodeA1.
7. Start the scheduler in the inittab. Use the servername parameter to specify the
correct stanza to use in the dsm.sys file:
dsmc sched -servername=DPSched

Data Protection for Oracle is now enabled for scheduled backups.

Appendix C. Support information
If you have a problem with your IBM software, you want to resolve it quickly. This
section describes the following options for obtaining support for IBM software
products:
v “What to do when you encounter a problem”
v “Searching knowledge bases” on page 75
v “Obtaining fixes” on page 75
v “Receiving weekly support updates” on page 76
v “Contacting IBM Software Support” on page 76

What to do when you encounter a problem


If you encounter a problem while using Data Protection for Oracle or if you cannot
start Data Protection for Oracle, do the following:
1. Run the tdpoconf utility showenvironment command to collect information on
your options file (–TDPO_OPTFILE=) and specified output files (–outfile=).
2. If the above command ran successfully, check its output to see if the setup
worked as expected.
3. If the above command failed, check the tdpoerror.log and dsierror.log files. The
tdpoerror.log is a log file created in the installation directory by default. The
dsierror.log is generated by the Tivoli Storage Manager API when a problem
occurs with the Tivoli Storage Manager API setup.
4. Fix the problem and run the tdpoconf utility again.
5. Verify that the Oracle target database instance is symbolically linked with Data
Protection for Oracle:
a. Log in as the Oracle user.
b. Run the following command:
$ ls -al $ORACLE_HOME/lib/libobk.a

Look for the libobk link(s) in the system's respective 32-bit or 64-bit library
directory.
c. Verify that the link points to a file that exists. For example:
$ORACLE_HOME/lib/libobk.a -> /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/oracle/bin64/libobk64.a

or
$ORACLE_HOME/lib/libobk.so -> /usr/lib/sparcV9/libobk.so
/usr/lib/sparcV9/libobk.so -> /opt/tivoli/tsm/client/oracle/bin64/libobk64.so

Make sure that the final link destination is the correct bit level and points to
a file that exists.
6. If the problem persists, gather the following information:
v A problem description file that includes the command you used and the
session output you received when the problem occurred.

© Copyright IBM Corp. 1997, 2008 73


v The tdpo.opt file specified by TDPO_OPTFILE variable in the RMAN script
v The dsm.opt file specified by dsmi_orc_config in the tdpo.opt file
v The dsm.sys file
v The Data Protection for Oracle error log file (tdpoerror.log) in the following
location (listed from highest to lowest precedence):
– The value of the Tivoli Storage Manager API errorlogname option
specified in the dsm.sys file.
– The value of the dsmi_log environment variable. Make sure dsmi_log
(specified in the tdpo.opt file) specifies a directory with Read/Write
permissions for the Oracle user. By default, the dsmi_log environment
variable specifies a directory owned by root.
– If a failure occurs during option processing for the initialization, the
tdpoerror.log file may be located in $ORACLE_HOME/bin.
v The Tivoli Storage Manager API error log file (dsierror.log) in the following
location (listed from highest to lowest precedence):
– The value of the Tivoli Storage Manager API errorlogname option
specified in the dsm.sys file. Make sure errorlogname specifies a directory
and file name with Read/Write permissions for the Oracle user.
– The value of the dsmi_log environment variable.
v The RMAN log file
v The Tivoli Storage Manager API trace file
To generate the Tivoli Storage Manager API trace file, add the following lines
in your dsm.opt file:
tracefile /home/oracle/rman/tsmapi.out
traceflag service
v The node information on the Tivoli Storage Manager server. To obtain this
information, enter:
query node <nodename> format=detail
v The Tivoli Storage Manager server activity log. To obtain this information,
enter this Tivoli Storage Manager administrator command:
query actlog

Note that this command provides one previous hour of activity. Since the
activity log should be obtained for the time period immediately prior to the
failed operation until a few moments after the failed operation, you can
specify the following settings to obtain activity for the exact time of failure:
query actlog begindate=MM/DD/YYYY begintime=HH:MM:SS
v The Data Protection for Oracle trace file
To generate the Data Protection for Oracle trace file, add the following lines
in your tdpo.opt file:
tdpo_trace_flags orclevel0 orclevel1 orclevel2
tdpo_trace_file /home/oracle/rman/tdpo.out

where:
orclevel0
Traces out function exit points when errors occur.
orclevel1
Traces out normal function entry and exit points.
orclevel2
Traces out more detailed information.

74 IBM Tivoli Storage Manager for Databases: Data Protection for Oracle for UNIX and Linux Installation and User’s Guide
Note: Any path and file name can be specified for the tdpo_trace_file and
tracefile options. However, the directory must exist and have writable
rights.

2. “Describing problems and gathering information” on page 78
3. “Submitting problems” on page 78

Determining the business impact


When you report a problem to IBM, you are asked to supply a severity level.
Therefore, you need to understand and assess the business impact of the problem
that you are reporting. Use the following criteria:
Severity 1
The problem has a critical business impact. You are unable to use the
program, resulting in a critical impact on operations. This condition
requires an immediate solution.
Severity 2
The problem has a significant business impact. The program is usable, but
it is severely limited.
Severity 3
The problem has some business impact. The program is usable, but less
significant features (not critical to operations) are unavailable.
Severity 4
The problem has minimal business impact. The problem causes little impact
on operations, or a reasonable circumvention to the problem was
implemented.

Appendix C. Support information 77
