Thanks for sharing, Gabriel!
That’s our concern - what happens if it fails... who do we call?!

Yes, we tested it. We create a protected databases and a policy with 1 day
disk retention and 5 days tape retention. After 5 days we did a point in time
recovery 3 days ago. ZDLRA restored all backup pieces from Tivoli and send it
to the protected database host.
ZDLRA did it automatically, as expected.

Wow, that’s interesting. Is this supported by IBM? Have you tried a restore

You are right, there's no backup agent for zdlra.
Backup team installed the backup agent for oracle.
We are not backing up the disk groups.
We created the media manager library, like below, and created the
It backups the backuppieces as it should be.
Edit the Media Manager and configure it to use the libobk.so library.
Like these one:
Another caveat: LanFree did not work and is not supported using the oracle
agent. If you want to plug in your backup devices directly into the compute
nodes using fiber channel, you have to use OSB.

Ooh, how are you doing this? Is there something like Tivoli backup agent
As far I know, the backuppieces are in Zdlra which are in turn stored in
ASM. How are you interfacing with zdlra to get the backuppieces onto
Or are you backing up the Asm dikgroups directly from the zdlra compute
nodes to tivoli?
Yeah, any customization on zdlra has to be redone after patching...

We have TSM Tivoli installed on both compute nodes sending backups to the
We are using it directly, without osb.
We have a problem in the last patching. Linux was upgraded and all TSM
packages were deinstalled before patching.
We had to reinstall it after the patching.

We’ve got commvault backing up the file system on zdlra. But we are
sending backuppieces on zdlra to osb.
I would be interested to hear if anyone are sending the zdlra
backuppieces to anything other than osb, eg. Commvault, and how is this

For those of you with ZDLRA, are you running a third party backup
agent on the compute nodes? If so, what products are you using?
