How can I do a raw backup of a disk device using Networker?

How can I do a raw backup of a disk device using Networker?

How can I do a raw backup of a disk device using Networker?

Does anyone know how to raw backup a disk device using Networker 5.1/Solstice Backup 5.1?

I have raw Oracle partitions that I need to backup.  I am currently using a script to put Oracle into hot mode and dd'ing it to tape.  

Thanks a head of time.

RE: How can I do a raw backup of a disk device using Networker?

Put a .nsr file in the directory containing the raw devices.
Ours looks like this:-

nsr file

<< /dev/vx/rdsk/datadg >>
