Limitations related to Oracle Database

Before you start working with SnapManager, you must know the limitations related to Oracle Database.

The limitations are as follows:

  • SnapManager supports Oracle versions 10gR2, 11gR1, 11gR2 and 12c, but does not support Oracle 10gR1 as the repository or target database.

  • SnapManager will not support the use of a SCAN IP address in place of a host name.

    SCAN IP is a new feature in Oracle 11gR2.

  • SnapManager does not support Oracle Cluster File System (OCFS).

  • Oracle 11g in a Direct NFS (dNFS) environment allows additional mount point configurations in the oranfstab file, such as multiple paths for load balancing.

    SnapManager does not modify the oranfstab file. You must manually add any additional properties that you want the cloned database to use, in the oranfstab file.

  • Support for Oracle Database 9i is deprecated from SnapManager 3.2.

  • Support for Oracle Database 10gR2 (earlier than is deprecated from SnapManager 3.3.1.

Note Identify the different versions of Oracle databases supported by referring to the Interoperability Matrix.
