RMAN not detecting Veeam plugin for Oracle RMAN

Post by mdiver »

Oracle 19c on Windows. We were able to install and configure the plugin as expected.

Code: Select all

show all
in RMAN list the expected values. Especially SBT_TAPE ist set correctly.

Trying to do a backup using:

Code: Select all

allocate channel sbt1 type 'SBT_TAPE' PARMS 'ENV=(SBT_LIBRARY=C:\PROGRA~1\Veeam\VEEAMP~1\ORACLE~2.DLL FORMAT=xxxxxxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxx-xxxxxxxxxxxx/RMAN_%I_%d_%T_%U.vab)';
backup database;
release channel sbt1;
Directly flags an error:

Code: Select all

ORA-19554: error allocating device, device type: SBT_TAPE, device name:
ORA-27211: Failed to load Media Management Library
Small detail: legacy plugin of different vendor ( was used before.
Until this plugin was uninstalled, RMAN still pushed its backups through the legacy plugin EVEN with Veeam plugin for RMAN already being installed and configured and specified in the channel allocation.
Once the legacy plugin was uninstalled, the job fails as described.

It seems the legacy plugin is still registered somewhere underneath inside RMAN/Oracle with higher priority.
Anyone had something alike before?

Let's wait for the reply from our support engineers, I believe they will find the root cause soon.
