EMC Integration with OB II 3.0 and SAP

Jump to solution
Im looking for clarification from a setup option in a SAP configuration file:
===================================================
BRBACKUP calls the program /opt/omni/lbin/ob2emcsplit to
split mirror disks. If the split_cmd option has ?$? sign then, at run time
BRBACKUP replaces the optional sign ?$? with the name of the text file
containing names of the files to be backed up. Use the following
parameter to set this option in the SAP Parameter File:
split_cmd = ?/opt/omni/lbin/ob2emcsplit $?
===================================================

Currently we have our split_cmd = "/opt/omni/lbin/ob2emcsplit /opt/omni/lbin/file_list"

My problem is that a few days ago a SAP admin dropped a few tablespaces which affected our backup. There are a number of files pointing to mount points for SAP. He nor I did not set this machine up as far as the backup goes, so we did not know about this "file_list". When he dropped the tablespaces, the files being referenced in this "file_list" errored out saying "No such file or directory", which in turn failed the whole backup. We would like to avoid this in the future but are trying to figure out a way to do it.

My question is what would happen if we changed the
split_cmd = "/opt/omni/lbin/ob2emcsplit $" ? What does the $ represent?

Once the backup is started brbackup takes the control and takes care of bringing down the database or putting the tablespaces online and get the list of all the files dynamically. It will generate a .lst file in the /oracle/$SID/sapbackup directory and pass on this list to backint. This is the list file that will be replaced with $ in the "/opt/omni/lbin/ob2emcsplit $" which will then be resolved for the volumes with SYMAPI utility within Omniback.
You can replace $ with the file so that you will have a full consistent database backup.

Hope this helps.

I have heard that it will not mount all of the filesystems if it does not have data files on them. Is this true?
