In this IBMAr RedbooksAr publication, we give an overview of different data management topics related to a typical SAPAr data center. The intrinsic functionality of SAP is not designed to completely handle all the tasks of a data center by itself, but the SAP system offers several interface possibilities to attach external tools to it to accomplish this task We explain SAP basic concepts and the issues with SAP data management. We introduce TivoliAr Storage Manager and all of its products that are related to SAP data management. We provide some comparison between database backup and recovery tools. Finally, we discuss data archiving using IBM DB2Ar CommonStore for SAP, and discuss high availability requirements and disaster recovery considerations. The second part of this book discusses a practical implementation of SAP backup and recovery with Tivoli Storage Manager. We implement this setup on two separate SAP systems: one running DB2 and the other running OracleAr database. We also implement LAN-free backup and FlashCopyAr scenarios. In the sample implementation section, we show many different tasks, such as backup and restore, database recovery, backup monitoring, and tuning. We also cover some advanced backup/availability considerations, such as split mirror backup and standby databases. This book helps individuals that operate an SAP environment to devise a strategy for a sound and comprehensive data backup solution using the IBM Tivoli Storage Management product family.Example 12-4 shows how a backup is listed in queries from DB2 after an offline backup of a DB2 SAP database from the production system to the Tivoli Storage Manager server has occurred. We use the db2 list history backup all for QASanbsp;...
