Veeam Plug-in on Linux for Oracle RMAN working with Veeam Agent for Linux

Post by davide.defeo »

Hi all,

i have a simple question/doubt.. on a Linux machine with Oracle instance on-board, if i install RMAN Plug-in and Linux Agent both, can i use the Linux Agent to schedule RMAN's backups or they don't communicate each other? I have already search on the Help Center but i have not found anything on this..

Thanks in advance! :D

Veeam Plug-in for RMAN has in current version no scheduler or Job Management.
So you need to create a RMAN script and run it by a scheduler.
You can backup a small file or the Oracle config files with the Veeam Agent for Linux and run the RMAN script as pre or post script.
If the processing takes long you maybe need to increase the timeout for the pre/post job scripting processing.
As well you need to handle error levels in the script. Everything higher than 0 will mark the script as failed.

Hi Andreas and thank you for your quick response! Perfect, you have confirmed what i'm thinking. :)
So will proceed to schedule RMAN backups via crontab.

Have a great day ahead!

Please have a look as well into the v12 (and the upcoming beta for it).
