We use a combo of TSM/TDPO/RMAN and a set of home grown scripts that
perform Oracle Hot backups. The scripts create a backup on local disk
which is then pushed to TSM as a BA client backup of the disk area. It
saves a lot of licensing costs for TDPO.

We are backing up Oracle using TDPO + TSM Client for many years under AIX:
- install required TSM Client (do not forget about API modules - it is
important for TDPO);
- install required TDP for Oracle;
- define dedicated node on TSM Server for each Oracle server (for example,
<node> for files, <node>_ORA for all databases on the same node);
- configure TSM Client & TDPO (dsm.opt and dsm.sys);
- create option file for each database;
- configure data compression or/and encryption, if required;
- use tdpoconf to save password for each database;
- link Oracle and TDPO (under AIX "ln -fs /usr/lib/libobk64.a
- create RMAN scripts for full database backup, incremental database
backup, archive redo logs backup, restore database, incomplete restore
database, etc (I can share some RMAN scripts, but not for Windows);
- create required TSM schedules.
Usually it is not easy to do initial setup and build scripts, but it
works fine for years with minimal intervention

Subject: [ADSM-L] Oricle backups
Well, I have now been tasked with backing up our Banner system.
This uses oricle as its back end db.
Seeking the wisdom of the group as to the best way to deal with oricle.
Is there now a tdp for oricle?
Any information / experiences welcome.
