Disaster Recovery For SAP ECC 6.0 On Oracle

Hi All,
This is our infrastructure
Windows 2003 Server
SAP ECC 6.0
Oracle 10
Legato Networker Client / Library
Actually our Backup Strategy is to do an Online Backup Every Night from monday to saturday. We want to test our backup by doing a Restore. We are assuming a complete loss of the system including hardware.
What we do:
1. Install the SAP System on a new host with the same hardware characteristic of the source system.
2. Install & Configure the legato utility.
3. Copy the E:\oracle\MIS\sapbackup\ directory from the source system to the test system.
4. Them we put the database in mount mode.
5. Execute the command: brrestore -b bdyxwoqv.fnf -m full  (bdyxwoqv.fnf-> Full Online Backup that was executed without problems).
It gives the following errors:
BR0386E File 'F:\ORACLE\MIS\SAPDATA2\SR3_10\SR3.DATA10' reported as not found by
backup utility
BR0386E File 'F:\ORACLE\MIS\SAPDATA3\SR3700_9\SR3700.DATA9' reported as not foun
d by backup utility
BR0280I BRRESTORE time stamp: 2008-10-01 17.45.19
BR0279E Return code from 'backint -u MIS -f restore -i E:\oracle\MIS\sapbackup\.
rdyybrzp.lst -t file -p E:\oracle\MIS\102\database\initMIS.utl': 2
BR0374E 0 of 63 files restored by backup utility
BR0280I BRRESTORE time stamp: 2008-10-01 17.45.19
BR0231E Backup utility call failed
BR0406I End of file restore: rdyybrzp.rsb 2008-10-01 17.45.19
BR0280I BRRESTORE time stamp: 2008-10-01 17.45.19
BR0404I BRRESTORE terminated with errors
Since this is a new SAP system it never will find the SAPDATA files because they where on the source system and this is a new test system.
We found the following note:
96848 Disaster recovery for SAP R/3 on Oracle
But this note is for SAP R/3 no for SAP ECC!
It explain that you have to install your SAP system with the System Copy Method (is this the only way??).
2.) Installation of the R/3 System
The installation of SAP software contains the software installation of the database. The initial SAP database should be created again but the SAP data should not be loaded.
Install the SAP system with the Oracle-specific system copy method, which is based on backup/restore. This method is described in the system copy guide for your Product/Release. Refer to Note 659509 for products that are based on Web AS.
3.) Modification of the installation
Above all, you must take into account the mounted file systems at the time of the loss. If necessary create new SAPDATA directories (mount points). These generally identify a disk or a logical storage area (logical volume).
Are we working in the right way? maybe there is a formal procedure to do a Restore from an Online backup when you complete loss your system.
Please some tips.
Best Regards,
Erick Ilarraza
Hi Eric,
Thanks a lot for your reply, I will follow the Note 96848 Disaster recovery for SAP R/3 on ORACLE point 5.
5.) Restore profile and log files, as you sayed in case of disaster we will lost our "source" system.
On the other hand to configure the legato client we take care of the name of the server, we configured the .sap, .cfg and .utl files so in theory the restore will be done on the new test system since we run the brrestore command from that system.
Officially there is not a documentation from SAP to do a Restore from a Online Backup with SAP ECC, SAP Netweaver (ABAP / ABAP + Java). You only have the 96848 note??? I found the following information:
http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw70/helpdata/en/65/cade3bd0c8545ee10000000a114084/frameset.htm
But there is not a official procedure like a System Copy Guide or Installation Guide.
Best Regards,
Erick Ilarraza
