Order of performing operations

Contributors NetAppZacharyWambold akseldavis

SnapManager enables you to perform various operations such as creating profiles, performing backups, and cloning backups. These operations must be performed in a specific order.

  1. Create a profile on an existing repository by using the smo profile create command.

    The Oracle user specified for the target database must have sysdba privileges.

    The following example shows the command to create a profile:

    smo profile create -profile prof1 -profile-password prof1cred
    -repository -dbname HR1 -login -username admin -host server1 -port 1521
    -database -dbname dedb -login -username db_oper2
    -password dbpw1 -host server1 -port 1521
  2. Create a backup on an existing profile by using the smo backup create command.

    The following example shows the command to create a backup:

    smo backup create -profile prof1 -full -offline -label full_backup_prof1 -force
  3. Restore and recover a database backup on primary storage by using the smo backup restore command.

    The following example shows the command to restore a backup:

    smo backup restore -profile prof1 -label full_backup_prof1
    -complete -recover -alllogs
  4. Create a clone specification by using the smo clone template command.

    You can use the Clone wizard in the graphical user interface (GUI) to create a template clone specification. You can also create the clone specification file by using a text editor.

  5. Clone a database with an existing backup by using the smo clone create command.

    You must have an existing clone specification or create a clone specification to specify the storage and database specifications for the clone.

    The following example shows the command to create a clone:

    smo clone create -profile prof1 -backup-label full_backup_prof1
    -newsid clone1 -label prof1_clone -clonespec C:\\clone_spec\\prof1_clonespec.xml
