Quality and Testing Security Security Research. Auto-suggest helps you quickly narrow down your search results by suggesting possible matches as you type. Database is cbv on an EMC symmetrix. We want to implement split BCV backups, but are unsure of the process. None of the documentation seem to provide you with a clear understanding on how it works. Is there anyway I can script this myself. I’ve used symmtools before to create and split bcv’s but in those cases i unmounted the filesystems so all the buffers were flushed.

How do you safely split a bcv bacmup an on-line backup without screwing up the filesystem on the bcv?

Solved: Split BCV Backups – Micro Focus Community

I was thingking of scripting the following 1 alter all tablespaces backup 2 switch oracle logs this takes care of oracle, but not the filesystem buffers 3 split nackup bcv 4 mount the disks under temp filesystems 5 do a filesystembackup of the temp filesystems 6 unmount and re-create the bcv Any ideas?

Hi John We have this implemented acroos the same server, now here is what we do 1. Merge them to the PV groups.

Take the database into backup mode. Split the BCV’s 5.

Take the backup out of backup Modes. I have detailes scripts for the same ,in case you want I can help you with the issue. John, Sure you can script it yourself The advantage of the off-the-shelf solutions is that they integrate in a much tighter way with your enterprise backup product, and are therefore easier to support.

HI You surely can create your own scripts to split-mount-sync bcvs. You will have to do error checking at each step to make sure all bcvs are split and mounted before backup starts. If you use readymade packages or integrations this might be part of package.

Take it as it comes.

IMS Recovery Expert – Creating an EMC BCV backup profile

Hi Here is the process I use when setting up BCV backups, we always usually script this as it saves using the integration packages to Omniback or Legato which do virtually exactly the same, but for a bzckup price. Hope this help regards Chris. Scripting everything is not a problem. I’ve done this before, but when i do it manually i umount the filesystem before i split it. How can i guarantee the the filesystem im splitting off will be in a usable state and not in the middle of a massive write.


It doesnt matter is the datafile is inconsistent within the database, as i can use redologs to fix that up, but the filesystem is another problem all together. It seems splitting a mounter filesystem is looking for trouble as you have no way of making sure that your buffers a flushed. HI Your bcv file systems will not be mounted when syncing. So either shutdown database or switch to backup mode and then split the bcvs. While syncing back use fuser command to make sure bcv file system is not in use.

Hican you please provide me with the detailed commands of spliting the bcv device and how i could remount them on the same host but under another mount point?
