  • Oracle Restore - How do you set the Media Agent
    Posted: 01-05-2011, 2:10 PM

    Our Oracle DBA's kick off restores from within Oracle.  The clients have CV Simpana 8.0 Sp4 File system, Oracle iDataagnet, and Media agent installed.

    Is there a way to define what media agent it should use?  The Storage policy assigned has several datapaths for other media agents so it would always just use the default path when kicked off.

    Here's a sample parameters entry

    Hi OttoHD,


    Currently there is no way to specify which media agent to use when invoking a backup or restore from RMAN command (Outside of the CommCell Console).  We have an enhancement request already in place with our developers to add this feature in a future release, but I can't say when that might happen.  In the mean time the only way would be to trigger the restore through the GUI, reset the default path in the GUI to the specified media agent before invoking the restore, or temporarily take the other media agents off line before invoking the restore.

    Thanks for the response.  I thought that might be the answer.

    I was able to do another work around.  I killed the running job, set the default path in the storage policy to the one I wanted it to run on and then restarted the job.  That worked like a champ.
