Backing up a clustered SAP database on Microsoft
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
To use the SAP Agent in a clustered environment,
do the following:
Install both MSCS and Oracle along with Oracle
Failsafe on both nodes of a two-node cluster environment.
Install the database that you want to back up on
the shared disk to ensure that the database is properly failed over
to the other node.
Ensure that the cluster has a virtual cluster name
Ensure the Is Alive poll
interval of the Oracle database resource is more than the average
time needed to back up the full database.
See your Oracle Failsafe
documentation for additional information on configuring and
installing Oracle Failsafe.
See your Microsoft
documentation for additional information on installing and
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.
