Hi All

Pretty new to this.

Have a quick questions regarding DDBoost Oracle Rman Agent.

We have lots of dbs has multiple domains or dbs on one server with different oracle user names.

Re: DDBoost Oracle Rman Agent Installation with multiple dbs on one server

Hello David,

Here is the link to the Administrator guide for RMAN. https://support.emc.com/docu86478_Oracle_RMAN_Agent_4.5_Administration_Guide.pdf?language=en_US&sour... If you look on page 16 it list the following:

The Oracle RMAN agent enables database servers to communicate with Data Domain systems in an optimized way, without the need to use a backup application.

Note

In earlier versions of the product, the Oracle RMAN agent was known as Data Domain Boost (DD Boost) for Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN) or the RMAN plug-in. In version 4.0, the product name changed to Oracle RMAN agent.

The use of the Oracle RMAN agent improves performance while reducing the amount of data that is transferred over the LAN. In the context of Oracle RMAN, the software has two components: l An RMAN agent that you install on each database server. This RMAN agent includes the DD Boost libraries for communicating with the DD Boost server that runs on the Data Domain system. l The DD Boost server that runs on the Data Domain systems. RMAN sets policies that control when backups and replications occur. Administrators manage backup, replication, and restore from a single console and can use all the features of DD Boost, including WAN-efficient replicator software. RMAN manages all the files (collections of data) in the catalog, even those created by the Data Domain system. The Data Domain system exposes pre-made disk volumes called storage units to a DD Boost enabled database server. Multiple database servers, each with the Oracle RMAN agent, can use the same storage unit on a Data Domain system as a storage server. Each database server can run a different operating system, provided that it is supported by Data Domain. The following figure shows an example configuration of the Oracle RMAN agent.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Re: DDBoost Oracle Rman Agent Installation with multiple dbs on one server

Thanks for the reply. But it still does not explain how should it works with multiple users and databases instances on one database server. For example, we have cfg, tst, dev instances on one box with oracfg, oratst and oradev users. And there are 3 different $ORACLE_HOME locations in one server.

So my question is, do I have to install 3 times within these 3 users and databases or just once. If so, how should it work. Or just make 3 different script to run the backups?

In this post, we are going to install and configure the DD Boost for Oracle RMAN module so that our RMAN backups can leverage cleanmaster the performance benefits of DD Boost.
