OAC-Classic Essbase: New Backup Scripts for Failures if Backup Exceeds 2 Hour Time Limit (Doc ID 2627836.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 01, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Analytics Cloud - Classic - Version 18.3.3 to 105.2.0 [Release 18 to 105.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In OAC-Classic Essbase 18.3.3 to 105.2, the backup logic would run for two hours and if there was a failure, it will restart from beginning. The backup is retried two more times. This backup logic has been changed in OAC 105.3 where if a backup fails and restarts, it will start the new backup from the point of failure and not from the beginning.  

If still running OAC 18.3.3 to OAC 105.2, new backup scripts are available but not implemented.  These can be used without upgrading to OAC 105.3 patch or higher.
