What gets imported to SnapCenter

You can import profiles, schedules, and operations performed using the profiles.

From SnapManager for Oracle and SnapManager for SAP To SnapCenter
Profiles without any operations and schedules A policy is created with default backup type as Online and backup scope as Full.
Profiles with one or more operations Multiple policies are created based on a unique combination of a profile and operations performed using that profile.

The policies created in SnapCenter contain the archive log pruning and retention details retrieved from the profile and corresponding operations.

Profiles with Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN) configuration Policies are created with the Catalog backup with Oracle Recovery Manager option enabled.

If external RMAN cataloging was used in SnapManager, you must configure the RMAN catalog settings in SnapCenter. You can either select the existing credential or create a new credential.

If RMAN was configured through control file in SnapManager, then you do not have to configure RMAN in SnapCenter.

Schedule attached to a profile A policy is created just for the schedule.
Database A resource group is created for each database that is imported.

In a Real Application Clusters (RAC) setup, the node on which you run the import tool becomes the preferred node after importing and the resource group is created for that node.

Note: When a profile is imported, a verification policy is created along with the backup policy.
When SnapManager for Oracle and SnapManager for SAP profiles, schedules, and any operations performed using the profiles are imported to SnapCenter, the different parameters values are also imported.

Retention

SnapManager for Oracle and SnapManager for SAP uses both Days and Counts to set the retention. In SnapCenter, there is either Days OR Counts. So, the retention is set with respect to days as the days get preference over counts in SnapManager for Oracle and SnapManager for SAP.
