Best Practices for SAP MaxDB Backup and Recovery Using IBM Tivoli Storage Manager
This paper is intended to help SAP MaxDB administrators to implement database backup, restore and recover scenarios using IBM Tivoli Storage Manager. The instrument which enables SAP MaxDB for transferring data from or to IBM Tivoli Storage Manager is the interface program IBM ADINT/TSM. With that utility the management of backup storage, e.g. tapes is separated from SAP MaxDB related backup and restore functions which facilitates the administration of SAP MaxDB backup and recover work flows significantly.
