Creating the repository database instance

The repository database instance is an Oracle database in which you create the SnapManager repository. The repository database instance must be a stand-alone database and cannot be the target database.

Before you begin

You must have an Oracle database and a user account to access the database.


  1. Log in to SQL *Plus: sqlplus '/ as sysdba'
  2. Create a new tablespace for the SnapManager repository: create tablespace tablespace_name datafile ′/u01/app/oracle/oradata/datafile/tablespace_name.dbf′ size 100M autoextend on;
    tablespace_name is the name of the tablespace.
  3. Verify the block size of the tablespace: select tablespace_name, block_size from dba_tablespaces;
    SnapManager requires a minimum 4-K block size for the tablespace.
