Update Veeam RMAN plugin

Post by mrholm »

Hi
I install the RMAN plugin using the VeeamBackup&Replication_10.0.1.4854 ISO file.
So when updating the Veeam centrally when and how will the RMAN plugin be updated?
Will the update for Veeam server find that the RMAN plugin is installed and update it or do I need to update locally on each Oracle server?

Thanks, but how do we know when there's an updated package?
From the link: "Periodically, Veeam releases a new version of Veeam Backup & Replication that contains new features and bug fixes. The release package also contains a new version of Veeam Plug-ins."

Are the plug-in always updated in an updated version of B&R?

Correct, they share the same version. So whenever there is a new Veeam Update (e.g. v11a) or release (e.g. v12 will be next) we are updating the Plug-in along with it.

Thanks Andreas, any upcoming improvments having central Veeam to recognize the RMAN installed on servers?

If you mean plug-in distribution and job management from Backup & Replication then this is not in v11, but it is on top of the customer feature request list which we usually address in one of the next versions.
