Scheduling database backups
SnapManager (3.2 or later) for Oracle enables you to schedule database backups to occur on a regular basis during off-peak hours to maintain high performance. To schedule a backup, you can create a profile, which includes the database information and retention policy, and then set schedules for the backup.
|You must schedule the backups as either a root user or an Oracle user. If you try to schedule the backups as a non-existing user, SnapManager displays an error message: Invalid user: username: Cannot create schedule backup for a given user|
The following are some of the schedule-related tasks:
Schedule a database backup to occur on an hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, or one-time basis.
View a list of scheduled backups associated with a profile.
Update a scheduled backup.
Suspend a schedule temporarily.
Resume the suspended schedule.
Delete a schedule.
|The Run Now Menu Operation check box is disabled when a scheduled backup is running for that schedule.|
