Creating a Subclient for Oracle RAC Selective Online Full Backups

Create a subclient for selective online full backups.

By default, selective online full backups are enabled on the Default subclient for newly created or discovered instances.

Before You Begin

  1. Create a Selective Copy.
  2. Optional: Run the script from the Commvault install base directory on the CommServe computer, to copy a full cycle of jobs to selective copy.

    Qscript -f SelectAdditionalJobs [storage policyName] [copy name] [backup types]

    The following are valid values for the backup types:

    • 0, disable selection of additional jobs
    • 2, include all non-full jobs


    qoperation execscript –sn SelectAdditionalJobs.sql –si storage_policy -si storage_policy_copy -si 2

  3. Optional: Decide if you want the software to force the parallel log backup to use the data storage policy. For more information, see Configuring the Storage Policy for a Parallel Log Backup.


  1. From the CommCell Browser, navigate to Client Computers | <RAC Client>.
  2. Right-click the <Instance>, point to All Tasks, and then click New Subclient.
  3. In the Subclient Name box, type the subclient name.
  4. On the Content tab, select the Selective Online Full check box.
  5. Click OK on the warning message dialog box.
  6. On the Storage Device tab, from the Data Storage Policy list, select the storage policy name.
