Oracle Database Backup Question
you are correct. Bacula does not have a specific
backup agent for Oracle, and the only way to back up
an Oracle database is the good old BEGIN BACKUP/END
I wrote a piece about the way I run such a backup at
my workplace. You can read it in
I run hot backups every day and delete archived redo
logs, rock solid. Did several successful restores.
Last time I looked, my server uptime was 32 days.
I know, commercial products offer great backup agents
for Oracle, but as a free solution, Bacula works

I have checked out the FAQs and the documentation,
but perhaps I missed
something or haven't looked closely enough. I was
wondering if it is
currently possible for Bacula to backup an Oracle
database. This is a
production database and I am running Bacula 1.38.11.
From what I have
found, it seems my only choice is to use Oracle's
tools to grab a
snapshot and back that up. Are there any other
options that I may be
missing? Thanks in advance for any advice.
