Backing up a clustered SAP database on Microsoft Cluster Server

The Backup Exec for SAP Agent supports backup and restore jobs in a clustered environment for Oracle with the help of Microsoft Cluster Server (MSCS) and Oracle Failsafe.

To use the SAP Agent in a clustered environment, do the following:

See your Oracle Failsafe documentation for additional information on configuring and installing Oracle Failsafe.

See your Microsoft documentation for additional information on installing and configuring MSCS.


In a cluster environment, if a job created through BACKINT or RMAN is processing and the node fails over, the job operation does not restart from the point when the node went down.
