a few weeks ago I started to include the Oracle database of one of our SAP developement systems in the Veeam bacup. So far we backed up the Oracle Database and its logfiles using brbackup (SAP).
I configured a daily Incremental, weekly full and Log backup every 15 minutes. Logs older than 24h are deleted after the Full/inc backup:
Everything is going well so far. VSS is working flawlessly, the backup is fast and relyable. Haven't tested a restore yet, but will soon.
My only Problem so far: How the hell can I get the logs back? I can see that .vlb files are created regulary:
I guess I would be able to restore the database to any point covered by the logs using Veeam in case of trouble. But what if I needed a log for another purpose, like a database recovery? Is there any way to get the logs back as a file
? This would really put my mind at rest...
