Tape backup

Post by Mike Rod » Mon, 02 Dec 1996 04:00:00



Hi,

I'm going to buy a tape drive to do backups but I'm not sure what kind
to get, does anybody have any advice.  I'm looking at the Iomega Ditto
tape drives which I think plug into the floppy controler and run about
$100.

Thanks,

Mike

        Mike, do yourself a favor and get the largest DAT drive
        you can afford.  I believe there are some 2GB ones for
        around 300-400, you won't regret it.  I have gone from
        a 120MB to a 400MB drive and now I wish I had taken the
        time to get a 2GB minimum.  That way you can do a full
        BU and several incremental on the same tape.  Also the
        tapes are less expensive.  $10 vs. $25 for a TR-1.

The TR3 drive from Exabyte seem to be fine with me, and it is quiet too

1. Solstice Backup 5.1 / DMO 2.1/Oracle 8.1.5: Tape backup failed : Need of 5.5 Upgrade ?

Hi,

we have the following installation:

Backup Server with

Solaris 2.5.1
Solstice Backup  Server 5.1

Backup client with

Solaris 2.6
Solstice backup Client 5.1

DMO (Database modules for Oracle) 2.1 with the last Patches, which
should give the possibility of scheduled backups

Oracle 8.1.5

Our Problem is:

we cant make a tape-backup with allocate ...'sbt_tape'  startet over
rman. backups to disk are running fine.

Starting a backup over nwadmin we get an error, because there is no
given a user.

Has anybody made a tape-backup from rman or nwadmin, without upgrading
to Solstice Backup 5.5?

TIA,

Nele
