Applies to

  • SnapCenter Plug-in for Oracle (SCO)
  • Oracle DataGuard

Answer

  • Oracle database tablespace files are the primary snapshot target on ONTAP volumes for backups
  • Oracle archive logs, when log backup is included in the full backup, are the secondary target for Snapshot backups, except when (Active) DataGuard is used
  • Oracle redo logs are only targeted for a Snapshot when (Active) DataGuard is in use
  • Oracle control files are copied to the tablespace storage before the main snapshot is created, except in an ASM RAC environment (*)
