Problem with acrserve 2000 oracle backup agent?

Hi everybody,

I use Arcserve 2000 Advanced to do my tape backups on server1 and have just purchased a oracle backup agent to backup my oracle database. Now the oracle database is on server2 which does not have a tape drive.

Once the oracle agent has been installed on server2 I am unable to see it from arcserve manger on server1. I installed arcserve on to server2 which allows me to see the oracle database on it.

But I have still unable to see if from server1.

You must be able to backup an oracle agent over a network. I must be doing something wrong.

Can someone tell me what?

Many thanks

Watch Question

Make sure the backup agent rpc service is running on the Oracle system.
Is the Windows Client Agent installed on the Oracle system?
In the backup window did you try viewing this system via both client agents (if applicable) and via network?


hi dovidmichel,

I have just checked and found that my version of arcserve 2000 is workgroup and not Advanced

Backup agent rpc service is up and running on server2

Windows client agent is installed on server2

I have installed advanced on another server, and that can see the database.

Unfortunately I do not have the reg codes for arcserve 2000 advanced ed.

Is there a reason why advanced can see the database while workgroup can not ?

Hi davidmichel,

Install the update on Arcserve 2000 workgroup still could not get the oracle database to apply.

Ended up uninstalling it and then installing Arcserve 2000 advanced which works fine.

Thanks for all your help
