I have a server running Oracle that is primarily supported by a vendor. They currently do a scripted cold backup. I also have been having Veeam doing a hot backup as well. I think at times when a backup window gets skewed it will attempt to hot backup the database when they have it offline and it will actually prevent their process form restarting the required services to put the database back online. They also state their Oracle licensing does not allow a hot backup. So in short they have asked us to stop the hot backup. My questions is if I just tell Veeam to skip the volume with the Oracle database on it, will it stop trying to put Oracle in hot backup mode? I hate to stop backing up the other volumes on the box as it has tons of other installed apps and processes which would take forever to set back up on that box is something happened to it.
