    RMAN retention and networker

    Hi All,

    I have multiple RMAN backups running using NMDA 1.2 on Networker.
    In networker itself, the retention is set to 4 weeks. Most RMAN backups do expire after 4 weeks.
    On the RMAN side, the...

    Your steps look ok to me. Since you don't have replication, you need to copy (backup stgpool) the data from the VTL. You can either do that before or after you've migrated the data to tape_pool.

    yeah, exactly it doesn't give me the WWNs of the drives.. I still don't get why they won't show the WWNs or at least the SN of the tape drives on the data movers. That seems like basic info to me.
