Hey @Alexzy !  check this out ()link at the bottom):

How do we configure backups on Oracle Exadata Database machines?

In order to backup Oracle Exadata Machines, do the following:

  1. Install the Oracle iDataAgent on all the Exadata nodes.

  2. Create a RAC pseudo client that includes all the Exadata nodes.

  3. Run the backups on the pseudo client. The backups are performed using RMAN scripts.


Hi @Mike Struening,


We are planning to onboard Exadata as well and found this thread.
Do we need to run RMAN compressed backups from the DB end or set with no compression and leave Commvault handle the compression?
And can we still configure backup from individual node without creating RAC pseudo client?

Good day @FM85 


Turn off RMAN compression, leverage commvault level compression for a better performance and savings.


Highly recommend to utilize the RAC Pseduo client for the backups.


Let us know in case of any other questions
