Enabling database access for Oracle operations on Linux servers

You can use the Remote Agent Utility to enable database access for the Linux server after you configure an Oracle instance.

To enable database access for Oracle operations on Linux servers

  1. On the Linux server on which the Oracle instances are installed, open a Terminal window.

  2. Change to the following directory:

    cd /opt/VRTSralus/bin

  3. Start the Remote Agent Utility:


  4. Type 1 to select Configure database access, and then press Enter.

  5. Type the user name that is in the beoper group on the Linux system.

    See About the Backup Exec operators group for the Remote Agent for Linux or UNIX Servers.

    If the authentication fails when the Oracle resources are backed up, the backup job fails. If the authentication fails when you browse the backup sets for a restore job, then the backup sets become unavailable, and you must run a DBA-initiated restore job to restore data.

  6. Type the password for this logon account, and then confirm it.

    The logon credentials are not stored on this computer.

  7. When prompted, specify if you want to use a custom port to connect to the media server communications between this computer and the media server during Oracle operations.

    Port 5633 is used by default. If you change the port number on this computer, you must also change it on the media server, and then restart the Backup Exec Job Engine Service on the media server. If a Windows firewall is enabled, you must add this port as an exception.

    See Setting default backup network and security options.

  8. Do one of the following:

    To commit the Oracle operation settings to the configuration file

    Type Y, and then press Enter.

    To cancel this entry

    Type N, and then press Enter.
