The processes for installing, configuring, integrating, and validating a Data Domain DD6300 system for data protection of databases are based on the specific operating system and DBMS being installed. However, the general concept and flow are similar.
For details about implementing data protection, see your DBMS vendor documentation and DD6300 Appliance on Dell EMC Online Support.
For details about installing and configuring the DD Boost agents for your environment, see the Dell EMC Database Application Agent Installation and Administration Guide.
To set up the Data Domain environment, follow the procedures in this section to accomplish these tasks:
Installing the Data Domain agent involves these steps:
To install the database application agent software on a Linux VM, follow these steps:
You can obtain the software package at https://support.emc.com/downloads/23107?siteLocale=en_US.
# filesys status
# user add <username> password <password>
Create one or more storage units on each Data Domain system to use with the database application agent. Each storage unit name on a single Data Domain system must be unique.
Provide the storage unit name when you configure the operations with the database application agent.
To create a storage unit:
sysadmin@DD6300# ddboost storage-unit create slob_unit_7 user db_backup
sysadmin@DD6300# mtree option set app-optimized-compression oracle1 mtree /data/col1/slob_unit_7
Configure the Data Domain agent as follows:
[root@dbhost1 ~]# cd /opt/dpsapps/dbappagent/bin/
[root@dbhost1 bin]# ./ddbmadmin -L -a LOCKBOX_PATH=/opt/dpsapps/common/lockbox -a LOCKBOX_OWNER_GID=54321
[root@dbhost1 bin]# ./ddbmadmin -G -a LOCKBOX_PATH=/opt/dpsapps/common/lockbox -a LOCKBOX_REMOTE_HOST=c7-tp-vm1 -a VIRTUAL_HOST=yes
[root@dbhost1 bin]# ./ddbmadmin –L
[root@dbhost1 bin]# ./ddbmadmin -P -z <config file>
If your DBMS environment requires script integration (as with Oracle), you can use templates in the agent download that are specific to your environment. You can then customize the scripts accordingly. For further guidance, see the Dell EMC Database Application Agent Installation and Administration Guide.
