Any comment or info regarding why the Oracle VSS snap integration disappeared in NOS 1.4.9?
Yes, the oracle snap support was discontinued from 1.4.9 due to the following issues
Currently we are looking at couple of alternatives to support Oracle backup’s.
Please do let me know what is your typical environment and your req’s around Oracle backup
I found another reference to this in another post. Seems it wasn't being used and the Oracle DBA's are sticking to their scripts. Shame. Would be handy for snap and replication once a day
Correct - many DBA's will simply script this in order to take a consistent backup. There is a great sample script from Tom Dau here
Create Nimble snapshot for Oracle DB
Hi Walter, it's Mark with a "k" by the way. We are using Commvault IDA's for Oracle so we are Ok. Just wish the replication part was really here. Nimble have done their bit but still waiting for the replication piece.
