Type the following commands in a terminal window pressing Enter after each line.
cd / mkdir -p /stage/12.1.0 chown -R oracle:oinstall /stage chmod -R 775 /stage mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/product/12.1.0/dbhome_1 mkdir -p /u01/app/oracle/product/12.1.0/grid chown -R oracle:oinstall /u01 chmod -R 775 /u01 mkdir /tape chown -R oracle:oinstall /tape chmod -R 775 /tape
We can use the /tape directory to simulate a tape drive for use with rman. After the Oracle Database is installed, running the following command within rman will give you a virtual tape device:
configure channel device type sbt parms=’SBT_LIBRARY=oracle.disksbt,ENV=(BACKUP_DIR=/tape)’;
When you do a backup to this location, rman will act as if this was a backup to tape.
