Hi,

i've configured amanda backup server.Now i'm getting below error.

Either oracle-oracle-sids or oracle-sids should be set in amanda-client.conf.
ERROR: 192.168.1.2: Application 'amrman': exited with status 1

Thanks & Regards,
xerox

You need to tell the Amanda configuration which Oracle SIDs to backup. Here's how:

On the Amanda client you must manually add entries to /etc/amanda/amanda-client.conf that define the Oracle SIDs being backed up, as well as the "SID List" that will be used to select the databases in the ZMC Backup What page. The syntax for entries is as follows:

    property "SID-list-name-BACKUP-DIRECTORY" "Backup_path_on_client"
    property "SID-list-name-ORACLE-SIDS" "SID_1" "[SID_2" ...]
    property "SID-ORACLE-HOME" "Oracle_Home_Directory_for_SID"
    property "SID-ORACLE-PATH" "Oracle_Path_for_SID"
    property "SID-ORACLE-CONNECT-STRING" "Connect_string_for_SID"

More details about those properties can be found here.

Thanks ThomasMcA2,

i've configured all entries in amanda.conf file
Now i'm below error msg.
ERROR: 192.168.1.2: RMAN returned error for SID test: please check
/var/log/amanda/client/Oracle-Backup/amrman_rman.18134.log on client for
more details.  
In amrman_rman.18134.log file
ORA-12154: TNS:could not resolve the connect identifier specified

I've followed http://www.dba-oracle.com/t_ora_12154_tns_resolve_service_name.htm page & confirm all entry in tnsnames.ora.
 
Thanks,

It sounds like your backup server can't find (connect to) the "test" server.

What happens when you run tnsping test on the backup server?

Is your Oracle server/database working correctly? Your "could not resolve" error implies that it might not be.
