MaxDB Backup via ext. Snapshot and Storage Snapshot

Hi all,

I want to write a script to backup MaxDB with an External Snapshot, followed by a Storage System Snapshot.

I found a document showing this process
SAP_MaxDB_Content_Server_Housekeeping.pdf page 33 ff

I understand, that I have to prepare that by creating a backup-template:
backup_template_create <backup_template_name> TO EXTERNAL SNAPSHOT

After that, I can start the backup-snapshot with
backup_start <backup_template_name> data

Following I will create the Storage snapshot and mount that to a backup-server

Then I have to finish the MaxDB-Backup with:
backup_finish <backup_template_name> ExternalBackupID <external_backup_ID>

(the external_backup_ID will be created by me).

Is that process complete or is something missing or wrong?

Thanks for any help

    Hi James,

    my customer provided the SAP note and it shows exact the
    same procedure, I asked for.

    So I know, what to do.

    Thanks for your help

    Sorry I failed to open the pdf you mentioned.
    But we can refer to SAP note ##1612412, which mentions the complete steps.

    Hi James,

    here I found the used document:

    http://maxdb.sap.com/training/expert_sessions/SAP_MaxDB_Content_Server_Housekeeping.pdf

    I cannot send it, because it's the wrong file type and too big.

    I don't have the priviledge to read the note, because I'm just a consultant,
    but not a SAP-customer.

    Regards

    Herbert
