Backup repository naming scheme?

How are you naming your backup repositories (or extents in SOBR) today?

I have at least for my primary and copy Backup repositories the prefix PRI_REPO_ and COPY_REPO in the names. And if there are “special” data in this repo for example RMAN oder something like this. I don’t like to search :sunglasses:

@JMeixner: What about the repo used for your configuration backup? Do you have a repo for replication metadata?

Vendor Name + Conceptual name + Number in production.

Could you share an example, even if fictional?

It depends, I have an own repo for the config in one environment. And this is the one where the naming schema I have described does not exist… :joy::joy::joy:

Mhh… CONF_REPO_ would be my spontaneous and uncreative idea for this….

Normally we use something like “HOSTNAME_PATH/DRIVELETTER(_STORAGE)(_TYPE)”. For example:

  • MyServer_E
  • MyServer2_G_Config
  • MyServer2_G_SANLUN001

This mainly goes for Windows repos; Linux or other Storage Devices would be similar.

 

@haslund Perhaps I can add something to your question? :wink: How do/would you name the repository folder in the filesystem? → I don’t have a standard here, bit thought about including the VBR name so it’s easier to find the corresponding VBR server.

server name_ExtentNumber

svg1sbcka001_01

svg= project name

1 = number of Datacenter

s = host type = server

bck= role/type

a= network area

001= number of server

specific backup repo for configuration backup and RMAN => server name
