Re: SAP B1 HANA Support?

Post by mheckel » Apr 18, 2018 7:24 am

Hello everybody,

1) Storage: Should I enable the exlucsion of swap file blocks?
2) Storage: I think it´s a good idea to backup from storage snapshots, isn´t it?
3) Guest processing:Is there a need to activate apllication-aware processing, if I backup SAP hana with pre-freeze / post-thaw scripts?
3.1) If yes, should I let veeam backup / truncate the SQL logs?

Thanks.

I can't speak to the rest of your questions, but in general any job containing Windows VMs using NTFS will take advantage of this feature. I don't see any reason not to enable swap file exclusion.

Yes, otherwise you wouldn't be able to specify pre-freeze/post-thaw scripts.

Log truncation settings apply to Exchange/SQL only.

Pre / Post scripts is part of the storage section, noch appliaction awareness?!

Additional info: It´s a Linux Red Hat VM.

Scripts in the storage section are pre/post-job. Pre-freeze/post-thaw script settings are located in the Guest Processing settings.

Hi

I read "THE WORD FROM GOSTEV" today.
He mentioned SAP Native plug in. I wonder this plug in is SAP certified or use BACKINT Api?
"Finally, something we didn't talk about before! Another enterprise application we had LOTS of requests from you to support natively is SAP HANA. We've actually been working on Veeam Plug-in for SAP HANA for a while now, and based on the results of the recent alpha testing with select customers, we've decided to shoot for including one in the Update 4 as well. Even if we didn't plan on including this one into the Update 4 originally, we decided it will be a shame not to at least try our best to ship it sooner, given the very positive feedback so far. Both Oracle and SAP HANA plug-ins are currently in private beta, so if you want to test them out and provide your feedback – as always, check with your Veeam sales rep if they have any private beta spots available (note that these are typically limited to just a few per sales region to control load on our sales engineers – so thank you for understanding in advance)."

Yes, it does use BACKINT and we will certainly be certifying one with SAP once it is shipped. Thanks!
