RMAN configuration on RAC

We are using RAC 9.2.0.6 and we have configured RMAN as follows:
RMAN> show all;
RMAN configuration parameters are:
CONFIGURE RETENTION POLICY TO REDUNDANCY 7;
CONFIGURE BACKUP OPTIMIZATION OFF;
CONFIGURE DEFAULT DEVICE TYPE TO DISK; # default
CONFIGURE CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP ON;
CONFIGURE CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP FORMAT FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO 'D:\eemp_backup\EEMP\Control files\eEmp_CTL%F';
CONFIGURE DEVICE TYPE DISK PARALLELISM 2;
CONFIGURE DATAFILE BACKUP COPIES FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO 1;#default
CONFIGURE ARCHIVELOG BACKUP COPIES FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO 1; # default
CONFIGURE CHANNEL 1 DEVICE TYPE DISK CONNECT '[email protected]';
CONFIGURE CHANNEL 2 DEVICE TYPE DISK CONNECT '[email protected]';
CONFIGURE CHANNEL DEVICE TYPE DISK FORMAT 'D:\eemp_backup\EEMP\Rman files\emp_files_%t_Bk_Set%s_Piece%p';
CONFIGURE MAXSETSIZE TO UNLIMITED; # default
CONFIGURE SNAPSHOT CONTROLFILE NAME TO 'D:\EEMP_BACKUP\CONTROLFILE\SNAPCF_V9232
1.F';
RMAN configuration has no stored or default parameters ,'D:\eemp_backup\EEMP\Rman files\emp_files_%t_Bk_Set%s_Piece%p' while i found it in this destination when i fire list backup of database command : C:\ORACLE\APP\PRODUCT\9206\DATABASE\ATHA8I5F_1_1
and tried many times to solve this problem and put the backup set as where i want to put it on but i couldn't
PLEASE help,
Regards
and then i have taken backup as:
rman> backup database plus archivelog;
then when I check the destination of backup set i didn't see them on the configued one which is :

You should place the archivelogs either on the shared storage or the archive logs of all instances at all the nodes.
Actually the concept is, in case of recovery, RMAN should be able to look the archive logs from all the instances.

  • RMAN configuration in ORACLE RAC database

    Hi there,
    We are using RMAN backup strategy for taking backups from one node(eg.node1).Database is RAC database, version 9.2.3. and OS is Solaris 5.10.
    this is the configuration which we use, as follows:
    Connecting to Prod.Database using catalog database.
    rman catalog=rman/[email protected] target=sys/[email protected](node 2).
    RMAN> show all;
    RMAN configuration parameters are:
    CONFIGURE RETENTION POLICY TO REDUNDANCY 30;
    CONFIGURE BACKUP OPTIMIZATION ON;
    CONFIGURE DEFAULT DEVICE TYPE TO DISK; # default
    CONFIGURE CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP ON;
    CONFIGURE CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP FORMAT FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO '/rmanback/_%F';
    CONFIGURE DEVICE TYPE DISK PARALLELISM 5;
    CONFIGURE DATAFILE BACKUP COPIES FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO 1; # default
    CONFIGURE ARCHIVELOG BACKUP COPIES FOR DEVICE TYPE DISK TO 1; # default
    CONFIGURE CHANNEL DEVICE TYPE DISK FORMAT '/rmanback/CMWPROD_%s.bak';
    CONFIGURE CHANNEL 2 DEVICE TYPE DISK CONNECT 'SYS/[email protected](node2)';
    CONFIGURE MAXSETSIZE TO 7 G;
    CONFIGURE SNAPSHOT CONTROLFILE NAME TO '/oracle/9.2.3/dbs/snapcf_CMWPROD1.f';
    As the above config shows RMAN is connecting to PROD DB (node 2). But we need to take backups (datafiles and as well as archive logs) from two nodes (i.e from node 1 and as well as node 2).
    Is there any possibility for taking backups from two nodes?
    Thanks,
    Balu.

    You will need to setup an NFS share such that both nodes can access each other's archived redo logs area. You also need to ensure your LOG_ARCHIVE_DEST_n parameter settings are properly set. Once setup correctly, either node will be able to run the backup and include each other's archived redo log files. Since this is RAC, the data files are shared by design and either node can already backup these files.
    Multiple channels would allow 'simultaneous' backup of the archived redo logs.
    I would highly recommend using a CFS (single shared file system where all nodes store their archived redo logs distinguished by thread) to store the archived redo logs, this reduces administration and configuration especially when you get ready to scale.
    Hope this helps.

  • RMAN backup on RAC

    Hi,
    DB=10.2.0.4 OS=RHL (RAC with 2 nodes db01,db02). Following are the types of automated RMAN backups taken on db01.
    - OCR
    - Voting Disk
    - Talespaces Snapshot
    - Archivelog (every hour)
    - Backup Incremental level 0 (SUNDAY)
    -- backup incrementa level 1 (Mon-SAT)
    - Autobackup of Control file and SPFILE (CONTROLFILE AUTOBACKUP ON)
    Two main questions please. First, are these backups/backup types are enough FOR FULL RESTORE when talking about RMAN backup on RAC environment with 2 nodes? If not please suggest what else I need to backup?
    Secondly, backup home location is /rman which I can see on db01 ONLY. This /rman directory I cannot see on db02. My question is that In case of db02 failure can I restore from this /rman directory? or do I need to automate backup schedules also on db02 separately?

    Hi,
    THanks alot for your feedback. Makes my life easier :) . But actually I started studying this all subject because of the following error message in the log file. I found out about this error that doesn't seem to harm. Just wait for the job to finish or it will sort out automatically. Here are the lines from the log file.
    Fehler in Backuplogs gefunden:/oracle/log/fcp11-backup-2300.log: RMAN-00571:

    06:10:41brORA-00230: operation disallowed: snapshot control file enqueue unavailableI studied few important lines from one of my book, Oracle 11g RMAN backup and recovery (Roberg G Freeman) that I am going to write after the following MAIN ISSUE:
    Node 1
    RMAN> show all;
    CONFIGURE SNAPSHOT CONTROLFILE NAME TO '/oracle/product/10.2.0/db/dbs/snapcf_fp11.f'; # default

    RMAN> show all;
    CONFIGURE SNAPSHOT CONTROLFILE NAME TO '/oracle/product/10.2.0/db/dbs/snapcf_fp12.f'; # default
    Thing which I just noticed regarding the above RMAN error is that snapcf_fp11.f can be seen on the Node 1 on todays date but snapcf_fp12.f was only on 10th jan.

    [[email protected]]$ ls -lrth
    -rw-r----- 1 oracle oinstall  20M Jan 10 13:28 snapcf_fcp12.fTHe few lines from the book which I mentioned above are: (Though you might not need to read those lines):
    "You need to move the snapshot control file to a shared location if you plan to run backups from more than one node. If you do not move the snapshot control file to a shared file system such as OCFS or an ASM disk group, then you must make sure that the local destination is identical on all nodes."
    My question is of course, how to sort out the above log file error. Becuse in our case, backups are run only from one node, and snaphost control file is not being moved to ASM disk groups. Local destination is also same on both the Nodes, isn't it (with different names). Why on Node 2 last snapshot was taken on 10th jan while on Node 1 it is todays date which seems fine.
    Control file and SPFILE which I noticed are stored on ASM disk groups also, so being shared between the two Nodes.
    (Sanme names/same location for control file and SPFILE on Node 1 and Node 2)
    Control file:

  • How to RMAN backup in RAC with OCFS

    hi,
    Iam using RAC 10.2.0 in windows 2003 server with OCFS .. i want to take backup using RMAN utility. can any sugest me how take RMAN backup..
    Thanks
    harish

    The only real consideration in RMAN on RAC is a one-off configuration issue as to whether the snapshot controlfile is written to the shared disk or not (it needs to be on the shared disk, or on a location that is common to all nodes, otherwise a backup that includes the control file will fail at the point a node tries to write it to a destination directory that only made sense to another node).
    Otherwise, there's not a lot that's different about an RMAN backup in RAC versus non-RAC.
    Simple answer, as a result: open a DOS window, type rman target /, then type backup database;

  • Please help with RMAN dup for RAC db

    Happy Holidays!! All,
    I need help with the following issue:
    Both target and auxiliary databases are:
    Database version is 10.2.0.3 with 2-node RAC db
    Servers are MS 2003
    Oracle Clusterware 10.2.0.3
    Oracle ASM for storage
    I have run the rman dup from RAC to a single instance db for a while. This is the first time I ran from RAC to RAC. This auxiliary db was refreshed before and was up for a while and was managed by server control tool. Now I am trying to refresh it with new backup files from production. I did the following as people suggested:
    1)     shutdown instance in the second node.
    2)     Startup nomount mode in the first node
    3)     Run RMAN dup
    It failed in the same place with slightly different errors. I pasted error messages at the bottom. I already created a TAR with Oracle but would like to know if anybody has any info related to this. Also I have several questions to ask:
    1)     Should I stop all services related to Oracle in node-2
    2)     Should I stop all clustware related services in node-1 except oracleCSServie since ASM uses it?
    3)     Is there any way I can finish the dup manually from the place I failed? What going to happen if I don’t finish the rest of the dup and go ahead with “alter database open resetlogs”?
    4)     How do I remove the database from under Server control – I already run “srvctl remove database -d atlrac” successfully. Is this all?
    Thanks a lot for your help and have a great holiday season!!!

    1) Should I stop all services related to Oracle in node-2
    No, you just need to stop the second instance.
    2) Should I stop all clustware related services in node-1 except oracleCSServie since ASM uses it?
    No, you don't need to stop anything. Just have the instance startup nomount.
    3) Is there any way I can finish the dup manually from the place I failed? What going to happen if I don’t finish the rest of the dup and go ahead with “alter database open resetlogs”?
    You have not shown enough information. Did the restore succeed ? Did the recover succeed ? What was it doing when it failed ?
    4) How do I remove the database from under Server control – I already run “srvctl remove database -d atlrac” successfully. Is this all?
    Yes, srvctl remove database is all you need. (unless you also want to remove from listener.ora, tnsnames.ora, oratab etc)

  • Showing RMAN configuration parameters 8.1.7

    Hi group
    What is the RMAN command in 8.1.7 to show RMAN configuration parameters, I know (SHOW ALL;) command is used in 9i version but it doesn't work on 8.1.7.
    Thanks you very much

    If I remember correctly, you could NOT configure and preserve parameters in 8.1.7 (so CONFIGURE and SHOW are not present in 8.1.7 RMAN).
    You could create scripts with all the required commands and save them to the OS or to the Catalog -- preferably at the OS level so that they can be viewed and edited if the Catalog becomes unavailable.

    i have a database about 175 gb which is as usual growing day by day as data entry is taking place.
    Untill now we have a cold backup strategy in the midnight 3 am a script down the database and make abc.tar.gz file of 25 gb approx. . This process takes about 100 minutes. But now due to new sales system we want our database up 24/7 .
    So we want to configure RMAN hot backup.
    I want to take backup on disk.
    daily full hot backup.
    backupsets
    currently database is in no-archivelog
    plz help me to proceed with this .

    that ?Without seeing the output that rman generated from running the above block, and without seeing all of the persistent rman settings, it is impossible to diagnose anything. I will say that your script looks overly complex.

  • RMAN-configure compatible

    Hi all,
    I've found in docs, that I can use the following statement:
    Raise the compatibility of the catalog to the desired level. For example, enter:
    RMAN> configure compatible = 8.1.5;
    but in my database (8.1.7) there is a message:
    RMAN-03022: compiling command: configure
    RMAN-06456: command not supported
    after raising such statement.
    Anyone met such error?
    James

    The recovery catalog schema version must be greater than or equal to the RMAN client version.
    http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B28359_01/backup.111/b28273/compat003.htm
    RMAN Catalog version - 10.2.0.2
    Target Database - 11R2
    So, you need to upgrade you RMAN catalog database version.

  • RMAN cloning from RAC to Non-RAC

    Hi Gurus,
    I had successfully cloned my DB from RAC to Non-RAC environment via RMAN. Below was the configuration
    RAC
    - 2 nodes
    - 11gR2 (Compatible 11.0.1.6 as per Application Requirement)
    - ASM (2 diskgroups DATA and FRA)
    - OS RHEL 6.3
    Non - RAC
    - 1 node
    - Stand alone11gR2 (Compatible 11.0.1.6 as per Application Requirement)
    - ASM (2 diskgroups DATA and FRA)
    - OS RHEL 6.3
    My approach was to clone DB and then change SID with nid utility. My understanding was that nid utility will also replace ASM file paths from CRAMPRD to CRAMSIT but that didnt happen.
    So issue is when I am checking my file paths on CRAMSIT it still refelect CRAMPRD eg - +DATA1/CRAMPRD. Is there any way to rename this directory paths in ASM so that it should reflect my SID.
    Regards,
    Nikhil Mehta.

    No, NID wouldn't change the ASM paths.
    I presume that you did set the ORACLE_SID to CRAMSIT on the non-RAC server before the restore.
    What you should have done is to set DB_UNIQUE_NAME='CRAMSIT'   (even with DB_NAME='CRAMPRD') on the non-RAC server before the restore.  Oracle would have used the DB_UNIQUE_NAME to set the ASM PAth  (note that during the restore it would have shown "restoring to +DATA1/CRAMPRD" but would have actually been restoring to "+DATA1/CRAMSIT").
    You will now have to use Oracle Support Note
      How to rename/move a datafile in the same ASM diskgroup [ID 564993.1]
    to rename the paths in ASM.

  • Rman Error on RAC

    Hi all I have a problem. We have a 2 node rac with ASM. The archives goes to ASM. I would like to backup the archives from ASM to a filesystem. But i was given a filesystem that is only mounted on one node and it is not accessbile to the other node. When i run the following rman command i get the error on one of the channel that connect to node 2.
    My question:
    Can i use on channel that is connecting to node1 to backup all the archivelogs generated by node1 and node2 aswell since both the nodes have access to archive logs.
    Please assist.

    Thanks

    Thanks. But i'm not able to understand why rman fails with the error, because i ran the script from node 1 which has access to the filesystem, so the channel to makes a tns connection to node2 and get the data via net services... why does it complain that the file or folder doesn't exist...

  • RMAN/Dataguard 32bit RAC on OCFS2 primary to 64bit standby on ASM

    Hi,
    I would like to know if RMAN backup and dataguard standby can be created/configured for primary RAC db on OCFS2 32bit to standby RAC db on ASM 64bit?
    This is for migration purposes as opposed on ongoing to minimize downtime.
    Thanks,
    Gareth

    You have neither an OS nor database version? This is answer for 10g:

  • RMAN restore in RAC

    We are running two nodes in Oracle RAC environment and try to use RMAN to do the restore.
    Case 1
    First, we try to stop both instance using sqlplus
    SQLPLUS>shutdown immediate;
    Then, we connect using RMAN
    RMAN>connect target sys/[email protected]
    and receive error "listener does not currently know of service requested in connect descriptor"
    Case 2
    We also try to stop one instance in SQLPlus and then use RMAN to connect the other instance. Then, issue shutdown immediate under RMAN. After that, issue startup nomount. It then return "not connected"
    Is there anything that I missed ??
    Thanks !

    and receive error "listener does not currently know
    of service requested in connect descriptor"Have you checked to see whether or not the Oracle listener is up and running?
    RMAN will fail if it cannot connect to the listener and database.
    In RAC, each node must be able to access the listener or RMAN will not work.
    What kind of backup are you taking? It sounds like a cold backup.
    use RMAN to connect the other instance. Then, issue
    shutdown immediate under RMAN. After that, issue
    startup nomount. It then return "not connected"
    and receive error "listener does not currently know of service requested in connect Again- please check the status for the Oracle listener. RMAN will fail to work if it cannot access the database connection from the TNS connection with the Oracle listener services. Also please review the configuration of your Oracle listener.ora, sqlnet.ora and tnsnames.ora file for any possible errors with the Oracle listener network configuration.
