I'm about to automate a database snapshot as a backup of a large (24 TB) SAP/Oracle database system. We really could NOT recover this database from tape so on to disk it goes. It looks like the SAP tool brbackup will do the heavy lifting with some simple scripts provided by me to do the pairresync/pairsplit part.
Any advice/tips/tricks or "OMG! DON'T do that" would be welcome.
