backup to disk using db13

Hi,

We already take online backup to tape using third party software and we want to change this backup. We want to backup oracle database and archive logs on a disk on another server using db13 (without third party software). We want to take an online backup.

We have created a mapped network drive (Z: is the drive letter) on sap database server (windows) that points to a shared folder on a remote server disk (windows).

We have changed the following parameters in init<SID>.sap file:

backup_mode = all

restore_mode = all

backup_type = online

backup_dev_type = disk

backup_root_dir = z:\

compress = yes

do we have to change some other parameter in init<SID>.sap file before we configure db13 to backup Whole database online + redo log backup?

do we have to change any of the following parameters in init<SID>.sap file?

stage_root_dir

compress_cmd

uncompress_cmd

compress_dir

archive_function

archive_copy_dir

archive_stage_dir

Thanks in advance.

Hi Stilianos,

Please update this into initSID.sap file following entry.

backup_root_dir = \\<IP address of server where backup folder is create>\PRD_backup

Deepak Kori
