What needs to be backup ?


The PRD Instance
Daily backup should be made for these SAP specific directories:
/usr/sap/
/sapmnt/
/usr/sap/trans on the TMS Domain Controller Server
Any directories containing flat files that are used by the SAP instance
Daily backups should be made for these Oracle specific directories:
/oracle
Directory holding redo logs if not in the /oracle structure
Weekly backup should be made for these OS specific directories:
Root
/etc
/dev
For Oracle, the entire /oracle directory should be backed up daily if there is only one Oracle Instance on the server, and each separate /oracle/ directory if there is more than one instance on the server.
It is also recommended that a full offline image of the entire server be made before the monthly closing cycle.
The DEV and QAS Instances
Weekly backup should be made for these SAP specific directories:
/usr/sap/
/sapmnt/
Any directories containing flat files that are used by the SAP instance
Weekly backups should be made for these Oracle specific directories:
/oracle
Directory holding redo logs if not in the /oracle structure
Monthly backup should be made for these OS specific directories:
Root
/etc
/dev
For Oracle, the entire /oracle directory should be backed up daily if there is only one Oracle Instance on the server, and each separate /oracle/ directory if there is more than one instance on the server.
It is also recommended that a full offline image of the entire server be made at the same time every month.
