We have a challenge:
backup some virtual machine (Windows 2008) with Oracle RAC
and disk shared manage by ASM.
The disk shared are .vmdk disk format by ASM.
Could you some idea for "backup" and "restore" this environment?
I have think:
All disk manage by ASM are unable to backup with Veeam (these disk are .vmdk shared in virtual Machine but I think that wouldn't save by Veeam) ...like to have mount point (CIFS/NFS/WEBDAV/...)
Save operative system disk with Veeam.
Create a new disk manage by Windows 2008 for put backup create by RMAN and save this disk with Veeam
In case of restore:
Start by restore VM (I would disk with Operative Systems and disk with backup RMAN
Create a new blank .vmdk shared disk
From disk with backup of RMAN restore entire database
You have some suggest or other idea for backup and restore VM with oracle rac?
Any suggest will be very valued.
