Oracle backup settings

Oracle server access

Enter access details for the Oracle server. You require an administrator account (SYSDBA). The Server field is the TNS alias.

Backup folder access

  • If Backup Manager is located on the same machine with your Oracle server, the backup folder is available on a local drive. Format for Linux servers: /export/home/app/oracle/backup. Format for Windows servers: D:\Export\Home\App\Oracle\Backup.
  • If Backup Manager is installed on another machine, specify the path to the network drive that was mounted in step 3 of the pre-backup settings.

Retention control settings

You can specify how often the backup folder must be cleaned up.

  • Retention in backups count – the number of backup sessions that should be completed before the files are deleted.
  • Retention in days – the number of days that should pass before the files are deleted.
