we have a server with a big Oracle DB (~800GB) on it, which we will take
offline. But we still need to keep the active data around for a few years (but
no copy backup). Since I don't want the accumulated data (~11TB) to occupy
space on the TSM Server i thought this would be perfect for a backupset.
But, as it turns out, backupsets can only be done if the data has been stored
with the BA client, not with the oracle rman client.
I thought about moving the data to a new, exclusive storage pool which will not
be processed by TSM maintenance processes (migration, space reclamation, copy
backup) so that there would be now volume mount calls and I could check out the
volumes. But this seems a bit unorthodox to me.
Does anyone have any other ideas?
