Netbackup 7.1 to 7.5 differences.

Does 7.5 write to tape differently than 7.1?

Trying to import a tape written in 7.5 to our master server using 7.1

If it is an RMAN backup, I think you can still extract the backup file sets with tar,
of cause you then need to restore these file sets with RMAN

If it was an RMAN backup tar probably won’t help.    RMAN backups are controlled by a repository on the Oracle side so what you see as file list in the backup isn’t really a file but rather something that make sense to that repository.[u][/u][u][/u]
[u][/u] [u][/u]
I was saying if it is NOT an RMAN backup tar might help.   Note the tar I’m talking about is a modified GNU tar that comes with NetBackup.[u][/u][u][/u]

Checking with the creator of the tape as to method of rman backup that was used.  Once I find out I will test a couple tar versions,  I only have the tar32.exe from 7.1 in the windows world but we have centos machines and Solaris machines I can test their tar version on the tape if it want an rman-NetBackup add-on that did the backup.[u][/u][u][/u]

Was the original image written using RMAN?  If so your server requires the Oracle plugin.  If you don’t have that on 7.1 you might want to get it and retry.   (Note it is an additional cost for that license.)[u][/u][u][/u]
[u][/u] [u][/u]
If it is just a filesystem backup you may not be able to “import” if there are NetBackup headers for 7.5 on it that 7.1 doesn’t recognize but you MIGHT be able to get the data off the tape using the “tar” command that comes with NetBackup (typically /usr/openv/netbackup/bin/tar on UNIX/Linux).[u][/u][u][/u]
[u][/u] [u][/u]
Typically UNIX can be restored to Linux and vice-versa from a NetBackup standpoint.   There IS a difference in big endian/little endian between UNIX on RISC and Linux on Intel though and Oracle has an issue with that so even if you get the tar to work you might not be able to use the datafiles in Oracle.  If the backup was a “dump” from Oracle to flat files that were then backed up to tape the dump can probably be imported by Oracle on Linux.[u][/u][u][/u]

I think I am going to have a lot of trouble importing this tape.[u][/u][u][/u]
Not only am I on 7.1 but my master server is Windows and theirs was Solaris[u][/u][u][/u]
Anyone have a possible way for me to read this tape without installing Solaris and creating a new master server?[u][/u][u][/u]
