change Oracle SID for Veritas Back-up exec agent
Posted on 2006-05-16
we run an Oracle database version 10g which we want to back-up with the (Veritas) Symantec back-up exec Oracle agent.
The Oracle database has an SID of 10 characters, the problem is that the back-up exec agent can only fit 8 characters for the database SIDthat we want to back-up.
Any suggestions on how to solve this problem? (change SID name, install patch for Symantec, create an Alias) Please include step by step instructions.
