Do you use the VEEAM RMAN Pluin in your environments?

What are your experiences with it?

Do you have one or more than one Oracle database instances on a system?

in current deployment for us for Oracle and Sap, we did some tests before. We don’t have enough experiences to provide some review at the moment :sweat_smile:

Our database administrators don’t believe in Veeam BR but we need to this experience for our LTR project. Our customer needs keep backups for one year and restore it for checking financial records. I guess that RMAN plugin and native tape support will good choice for us.

Hi Davoud,
as far as I have seen you cannot select a tape reprository as a target for RMAN backups. You have to use a disk repository and copy the backup files to tape afterwards.

This would be a nice feature to get direct tape suport with the plugin jobs...

Hi JMeixner,

We actively use the RMAN Plug-in. On the SAP side, we have integrated veeam directly with SAP HANA hardware. Performance and backup tasks are all successfully.Is there anything you are particularly curious about?

Hello @bynalbant ,
are you using the brtools for backup of the SAP database? Or are you doing a “pure” RMAN backup?

@JMeixner We do not use brtools. rman plugin is successful enough, we don't need an extra copy.

Hi there,

we use brtools with Oracle RMAN Plugins cause we used Tivoli Storage Manager before and all backup and SAP guys are used to it. Works fine.
Any specific question here?

We also use SAP Hana Plugin without greater issues.

 

Only thing is: B&R Server needs a lot of CPU cores to handle normal VM backups and all our SAP Hana (~25) and Oracle RMan (~10) backups. And we got to a point where backups could not be handled and ran into a timeout.

Used couple of times with SAP HANA… not difficult to install but the biggest challenge was to convince SAP admins to install the plugin in their “toy”…

Now SAP recommend veeam for backuping Hana, things changes hehe. Can’t wait to play with hana, it will at the beginning of 2021 for us.

Like we’r talking Oracle things, we are impatient to try instant recovery oracle on production. Little bit affraid by how our backup repo will support the load during the total recovery.
