Backup Oracle Database 11g Release R2

Hi,

Is it possible to protect a VM with Oracle Database 11g Release R2?

I found only documentation for Oracle Database 12g.

Thank you.

Hi,

Unfortunately Azure Backup does not support backing up Oracle databases directly.

Support matrix for Azure Backup
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/backup/backup-support-matrix

You may however make use of the Application-consistent backup of Azure Linux VMs:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/backup/backup-azure-linux-app-consistent

For backing up Oracle databases, please refer to the below documentation:

Back up and recover an Oracle Database 12c database on an Azure Linux virtual machine
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/virtual-machines/workloads/oracle/oracle-backup-recovery


Best regards,
Leon

Hi,

That makes 12g I know.

My doubt is if it is version 11g?

Tks

Azure Backup supports application-consistent backup of Azure Linux VMs, you may configure your Linux VM hosting the Oracle Database 11g to become application-consistent, and then you may take a backup of the entire VM as mentioned in the documentation for backing up the Oracle Database 12c.

Hi,

I am concerned about not being able to get back just the database using a procedure that is for a version above.

Or the Oracle DBA will need to adapt the procedure to version 11g using the same concept.

I believe it is more reliable to backup using RMAN inside the VM, to store on a disk.

Is it possible to back up only one volume or file from a Linux VM?


Thank you.

you can now exclude data disks and only backup selected volumes (in preview), see https://azure.microsoft.com/en-us/updates/excludediskpreview/
