A Oracle Secure Backup Directories and Files

This appendix explains the structure and contents of the Oracle Secure Backup directories.

This appendix contains these sections:

Note:

Some of the directories and files listed in this appendix are not created until after a backup has been performed by Oracle Secure Backup.

A.1 Oracle Secure Backup Home Directory

When you installed Oracle Secure Backup, you specified an Oracle Secure Backup home directory for the installation. Oracle recommends the following locations for the Oracle Secure Backup home:

The Oracle Secure Backup home directory is created on every host where you install Oracle Secure Backup, although the contents of the directory vary depending on the roles you assigned to the host.

Each host on which Oracle Secure Backup is installed contains a configuration file that records details of the configuration of Oracle Secure Backup on the host. On Windows, the configuration file is called obconfig.txt in the db subdirectory of the Oracle Secure Backup home. On Linux and UNIX, the file is called obconfig and is located in the /etc directory.

A.2 Administrative Server Directories and Files

An administrative server contains a set of executables and data files for each installed operating system, which are described in the following tables:
