PowerProtect Data Manager overview PowerProtect Data Manager is designed to do three things when you use it with the Oracle RMAN agent and Microsoft application agent:

l Automate the configuration of the Oracle RMAN agent and Microsoft application agent lockboxes.

l Create a catalog of backups that are produced by the Oracle RMAN agent and Microsoft application agent, and then monitor that catalog data to determine if retention policies are being adhered to.

l Manage the life cycle of backups that are created by the Oracle RMAN agent and Microsoft application agentthat is, ensure that the backups are marked for garbage collection based on the rules of the retention policy.

PowerProtect Data Manager does not change the way that the Oracle RMAN agent and Microsoft application agent work. DBAs continue to create backups and perform restores as they do today.

Prerequisites Ensure that your environment meets the requirements for a new deployment or upgrade of PowerProtect Data Manager.

Requirements:

l A list of hosts that write backups to DD systems is available.

l DD OS version 6.1 or later and the DD Management Console (DDMC). All models of DD systems are supported.

l Oracle RMAN agent 19.3 (Linux only).

l Microsoft application agent 19.3.

l License: A trial license is provided with the PowerProtect Data Manager software. DPS Applications, Backup, and Enterprise customers can contact Dell EMC Licensing Support for assistance with a permanent PowerProtect Data Manager license.

l Large environments require multiple PowerProtect Data Manager instances. Contact Champions.eCDM@emc.com for assistance with sizing requests.

l The PowerProtect Data Manager 19.3 OVA requires the following:

n ESXi version 6.0, 6.5, 6.7

n 8 vCPUs, 18 GB RAM, one 100 GB disk, and one 500 GB disk.

n The latest version of the Google Chrome browser to access the PowerProtect Data Manager UI.

n TCP port 7000 is open between PowerProtect Data Manager and the database hosts.

l VMware ESXi server that hosts PowerProtect Data Manager meets the following minimum system requirements:

n 10 CPU cores

n 18 GB of RAM for PowerProtect Data Manager

n Five disks with the following capacities:
