We  have issues with the overall time direct to Netbackup RMAN backups take; it's considerably longer than writing to disk and letting the nightly server Netbackup  process run.  It was a show-stopper for  us so we use the 'write to disk and let the O/S Netbackup process take them to tape' approach.   David Fitzjarrell Primary author, "Oracle Exadata Survival Guide" On Tuesday, April 22, 2014 6:11 PM, Chris Grabowy <> wrote: Today RMAN sends its backups and archive log files to disk and then Netbackup backs up the database backup directories.  I linked Netbackup with Oracle and I did some simple backup and restores using RMAN with Netbackup.  Everything seems to be working.  I have been reviewing the Netbackup 7.5 for Oracle Admin Guide.    About one third of our databases are still on but being upgraded to soon.  We are currently hosted on HPUX and glacially being migrated to RHEL.   I was wondering if anyone has any words of advice, pointers, links, gotchas when switching RMAN to use Netbackups.   TIA!!   Chris
