RMAN catalogue maintenance with Netbackup [message #228430] Tue, 03 April 2007 00:35 Go to next message

I consult to a site that uses Veritas Netbackup which calls RMAN scripts to backup the database to tape.

The RMAN catalog has a redundancy set to 1, but since no catalog maintenance is done there are entries going back to 2005.

I want to tidy up the catalog but don't want to conflict with the Netbackup records. If I do a 'delete obsolete' or remove the expired backups the RMAN catalog and Netbackup will be out of whack.

Does anyone know the best way to keep these in sync? For example, if Netbackup keeps daily, weekly, monthly and yearly backups, how do I reflect that in RMAN?

Now that is a good question (one that I've been struggling with as well).

I guess the easy solution would be to get Netbackup (and other vendors) to expire RMAN records when it expires a backup.

In the mean time, some manual cleanup would be required.
