Creating the repository database instance

Contributors NetAppZacharyWambold Download PDF of this page

The repository database instance is an Oracle database in which you create the SnapManager repository. The repository database instance must be a stand-alone database and cannot be the target database.

You must have an Oracle database and a user account to access the database.

  1. Log in to SQL *Plus: sqlplus '/ as sysdba'

  2. Create a new tablespace for the SnapManager repository: create tablespacetablespace_name datafile ′/u01/app/oracle/oradata/datafile/tablespace_name.dbf′ size 100M autoextend on;

    tablespace_name is the name of the tablespace.

  3. Verify the block size of the tablespace: select tablespace_name, block_size from dba_tablespaces;

    SnapManager requires a minimum 4-K block size for the tablespace.
