2 Backup and Recovery Locations

Oracle recommends creating all the initial backups of all the components, excluding the Exalogic Repository, on the local ZFS storage appliance. These backups can then be moved to an external storage device or to tape depending on existing backup policies.

To create a project and shares on the local ZFS storage, do the following:

  1. Log in to the BUI of the storage appliance as the root user

    https://storage_appliance_IP:215

  2. Under Shares click Projects to bring up the Projects page.

  3. Click the plus button next to Projects.

  4. Enter the name of the new project.

    Example: Exalogic_Backup.

  5. From the list of projects, select the Exalogic_Backup project.

  6. Navigate to the general properties page and update the mount point.

    Example: /export/Exalogic_Backup.

  7. Click Apply.

  8. Navigate to the Protocols properties page and add NFS exceptions by clicking the plus next to NFS Exceptions.

    Enter the following information:

    Type Entry Access Mode Charset Root Access

    Network

    CIDR for the IPoIB default

    Read/Write

    Default

    Network

    CIDR for the IPoIB storage partition

    Read/Write

  9. Click Apply to save the settings.

  10. Navigate to the Shares page to create shares for each component. This is the location for the initial backup of each component.

  11. Create the following shares by clicking plus symbol next to file system and providing a name for the share.
