My experience is I’ve had to install the SSO license on media servers any time I setup the tape library.    Are you saying we only have to pay for it once no matter how often it is installed? 


The machine is standalone with no RAC.   Enterprise client is correct.   My question isn’t whether I can backup “generally” from an Enterprise client but rather whether I can specifically Enterprise client as the “media server” for RMAN on the same host.   That is use the Oracle type backup for a live DB with RMAN rather than a type “standard” backup as we would for a quiesced DB on which we were just backing up the filesystem directly.    We do the latter all the time but this would be first time we’re attempting the former.

You can install and use  media server at the server with the oracle database. This is something common.

For the licenses you need:


Enterprise client (media server option that back up only himself)

SSO license (if you will use shared drives). You do not need SSO if you already share the drive(s) with other systems. The SSO license goes with the drive, not the server.

Database license for the oracle database. If you already have, its ok.


Is the oracle server a standalone server, cluster or RAC ?


Please pay attention that if you are using inline copy (two copies at the time of backup), both copies must use the same media server (the oracle server).  In order to do that the deduplication hashing will be performed at the oracle server.
