4.11 Can the Repository be Backed Up?

An Oracle VM Server can be configured to enable third party applications to perform a back up of the contents of a storage repository. To enable this, an Oracle VM Server is configured to provide an NFS share that a third party back up tool can use to access the contents of the repository. The Oracle VM Server must be in a clustered server pool and have the OCFS2-based storage repository presented to it.

When you have created a repository export, use the Repository Path (displayed in the management pane table) and the Oracle VM Server hostname or IP address to connect to the NFS mount point from the third party back up software.

To enable third party backup tools to access the contents of a storage repository, see Repository Exports Perspective in the Oracle VM Manager User's Guide.
