I am trying to backup a linux VM with an oracle DB but I am not an Oracle DBA and I need some advices. I have found some information but in some cases it was written more than a year ago and I think there could be some changes and improvements in VBR since there.
I have found this article and it explains in a very simple way what I need to do but I want to confirm. https://erth111.wordpress.com/2014/06/2 ... -veeam-br/
1.- I must have VMware Tools installed.
2.- Create the pre-freeze-script.sh (ALTER DATABASE BEGIN BACKUP) in /usr/sbin (what permissions should I give to this file?).
3.- Create the post-thaw-script.sh (ALTER DATABASE END BACKUP) in /usr/sbin (what permissions should I give to this file?).
4.- If the DB is not running in Archivelog Mode I need to change it (What hapens if I do not do this step?).
5.- Enable VMware Tools quiescence in the backup job.
6.- Specify the pre-freeze-script.sh and post-thaw-script.sh in the job application aware section (here I have a question, If I put the scripts in /usr/sbin, how can I specify the path in the backup job?).
7.- Finally the credentials (Here I have another question, what credentials I need to use? oracle admin or root?)
