BCV as I know it is an EMC term and refers to replicating one set of disks to another (i.e. mirroring them) then breaking the mirror so the second set can be mounted independently of the first set.

We do that for our large ERP database (except now we use Hitachi's Shadow Image rather than EMC's BCV). Conceptually the steps are:
1) Run your database on SAN storage (first set of disks).
2) Start a synchronization of first set of disks to a second set of disks.
3) Once the synchronization is at 100% (i.e. fully mirrored) put the database into hot backup mode (or shut it down for a cold backup).
4) Break the synchronization/mirror so the data files on the second set are all at a set point in time. (The hot backup mode essentially sets the database to log updates rather than committing them.)
5) Take the database out of hot backup mode (at which point it commits what it logged to the first set of disks).
6) Mount the second set of disks (usually on a separate server) and backup the mounts there.

Exact steps vary depending on the disk array you're using, the database software you're using, the OS you're using and the filesystem and other layers (e.g. Veritas Volume Manager on HP-UX or Solaris or LVM on HP-UX or Linux).

Thanks a lot Jeff for ur prompt help.

This reply quite helped me in understanding the whole BCV process, yet I am looking for instructions (steps wise) on how to set up the whole netbackup environment for oracle databases.

Please let me know if u require any more information from my side.

Again, thanks a lot. :D

Hi Jeff,

Where should I start if I have to configure Netbackup for BCV backups.

Master server : (NBU 7.5.0.6) Solaris 10 Sparc
Media Server : (NBU 7.0.1) Solaris 10 Sparc

EMC VNX disk arrays are hosting the Orcale databases. Please help.

Thanks.

I've not worked with the VNX.

On a quick search I found this white paper that would seem to be a starting point for replication on the VNX for Oracle:
