Mounting backups

Contributors Download PDF of this page

SnapManager automatically handles the mounting of a backup to make it available to the host. You can also mount backups in scenarios where you use an external tool, such as Oracle Recovery Manager (RMAN), to access the files in the backup.

If you are using RMAN, you must use the mount operation to change the state of a backup (which allows access) and the unmount operation to change the state of a backup (which removes access).

The smo backup mount command displays a list of paths where the Snapshot copies consisting of the backup have been mounted.

Note You can optionally collect the dump files after a successful or failed backup mount operation.
  1. To Mount a backup enter the following command: smo backup mount -profile profile_name {labellabel [data | -archivelogs] | -idid} [-host-host] [-dump] [-quiet | -verbose]
