RMAN Backup Copy

Post by ferrus » May 20, 2019 1:49 pm

Sorry if this is the wrong subforum - I'm not sure which is the correct one to use for the Enterprise Application Plug-ins, but I am backing up to a physical server :wink:

I have a three physical linux servers, each hosting a number of Oracle databases.
With the release of Update 4, we now have the ability to back these up using Veeam.
Our Oracle DBA has expressed a preference for keeping RMAN as the primary backup tool, and using the RMAN plugin for Veeam integration (which seems to reflect Veeam's recommendation here).

We've successfully created the first backup, on our local Veeam server storage - but I'd like to have these backups copied to our Data Domain, as with all of our VM backups.

I can't find a way of editing the auto-created Backup job, to create a secondary Backup Copy job, or a way to create a new BCJ and reference the RMAN backup.
I even looked at the Capacity Tier, in the SOBR setup - but that appears to be for Cloud services only.

Is there any way of setting up the equivalent of a BCJ to secondary storage, which removes the processing from the source server?

After posting this, I've just seen the Multiple Repository Deployment setup.

Presumably, that would keep the task open a lot longer however, for de-duplicating appliances?
And rely on the same GFS rotation?
