Configuring Backup Exec Agente installed on a Linux machine to detect a ORACLE database,
Posted on 2010-11-21
i got 22 servers, 5 of them are Linux machines with oracle installed on them, i bought backup exec agents so i can bakcup everything centralised, all agents installed ok no issues there, both machines LINUX and Widnows, did a backup run and the managment server sees all machines and can backup them up.
I now need to configure the agent to see the oracle database, i am doing this on a test server because of issues and well all other are in production and i dont want to mess with them.
What am i doing:
There is a script backup exec asks you to tun in order to configure the orcale access to the database and to detect the instances of oracle, it can detect all instances the problem starts when it ask me for the password and username for the oracle local system, i used the SYSDBA user and the root users both for linux and oracle, both keep telling me either the user-name is incorrect or is not part of the groups with access to the database, i confirm the groups and they are in the groups for sure.
Well i guess my question is, is there a workaround for the agent to see the instance without having to use the script? been Linux i guess there must be a manual file somewhere i can edit to get past this annoyance.
Thanks for help,
