The dbed_update command creates SFDB repository, which stores information used by the SFDB tools. The repository contains Storage Checkpoint information, tablespace and datafile information, Database FlashSnap information, and Database DST parameters. If the repository already exists, the command will refresh it. To use dbed_update, the database must be up and running, and the ORACLE_SID and the ORACLE_HOME variables must be specified with and -S and -H options.
The following options are supported:
-S ORACLE_SID Specifies the name of the Oracle database whose information will be retrieved. -H ORACLE_HOME The ORACLE_HOME setting for the ORACLE_SID database. -G SERVICE_GROUP This option is ignored. It is accepted for backwards compatibility. -P ORACLE_PFILE Specifies the fully qualify path of the Oracle pfile if it is not located under ORACLE_HOME/dbs directory. -C PACKAGE This option is ignored. It is accepted for backwards compatibility. -R REPOSITORY_PATH Specifies a user-defined location for the repository. In a RAC(*) or HA situation, it should be located on shared storage. The default location is on the mountpoint of the SYSTEM tablespace of the Oracle database. This way it is shared easily among cluster nodes. If REPOSITORY_PATH is slash (/), the repository location is switched back to the default path. -I An integrity check of the repository is performed, without refreshing from the Oracle database . If successful, the string ok is printed to stdout. In addition, the full path of the repository file is shown. Whenever refreshing from the database, an integrity check is automatically performed. -o list The list of hosts and their internal ID is shown. -o rename,old_node=old_name,new_node=new_name This option is ignored. It is accepted for backwards compatibility. -h Prints this help text.
dbed_update must be run as Oracle DBA user to retrieve information from an Oracle database.
* Real Application Clusters (RAC) Considerations
RAC is not supported on some SF products/configurations. For details please refer to the Veritas Storage Foundation: Storage and Availability Management for Oracle Databases Guide
