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

Post by n.paul.. » Wed, 08 Mar 2000 04:00:00


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?




1. Importing Networker 5.5 tapes into Solstice Backup 6.1


  I have been given a Legato Networker 5.5.2 backup spread across 2
DLT-4 tapes and am trying to import this set into Solstice Backup

  Running "scanner -i /dev/rmt/0cbn" reports no errors and its output
seems to indicate that the save sets were successfully imported.  If I
now run nwadmin I can see the save sets under "recover save sets" and
under "volumes" but the nwrecover utility does allow me to browse
contents even though their status is described as "browsable" under
the "volumes" screen.

  I have followed the information in the Administrators Guide under
the section for scanner but this does not appear to have worked.  I
have made sure my copy of Solstice Backup has been patched up to date
and have found no solutions from the Sun website or from previous
posts to this newsgroup.

  Could someone please offer advice?
