We are running ADSM 18.104.22.168 on an H50 under AIX 4.3. We backup to a disk pool and then migrate the data to tape later. We use an STK9710 library with DLT7000 tapes drives. We currently backup 60+ servers and aprox 200GB a night. The majority of the data backed up is full backups of Oracle data bases. Most of our Oracle data bases are v7.3.X. We also have a couple that are V8. We have two servers with large Oracle databases(aprox 200GB each- V7.3.5) we want to add to ADSM. When/if that happens under our current environment we will no longer meet our backup window. We have been discussing doing incremental backups on the Oracle data bases(do a full backup on Sunday and then backup the logs during the week). I'd like to hear from anyone who has experience(good & bad) doing incremental Oracle backups. I'd also be interested in your method of doing them.
