In this post, I will demonstrate how to set up Data Domain as a backup target for RMAN using NFS.
This is a basic process that involves creating the storage unit on the Data Domain, configuring NFS and then testing the backup. The post will serve as a basis for future posts where we will cover Mtree replication in Data Domain, and the acceleration option called DD Boost.
In this post, we will explore how to set up a YUM repository using the RPMs available on the Linux install media.
There are already a great number of good blogs on setting up YUM repositories so this is nothing especially new. But every time I install Oracle I find I have to track down one or two that cover what I need, so this is my brain dump on how to do it.
