Simultaneously backup to Tape and Veeam Plugin backup to Veeam server


Hi Veeam,

Currently one of our customer using RMAN to backup there oracle database to the tape. They want to use Veeam RMAN plugin backup to the Veeam repository but the problem is they don’t want to completely stop the backup to tape.

They are requesting there is any possible way to simultaneously backup their  Oracle database  to tape and also to RMAN plugin backup.

They are having huge concern on RMAN plugin configuration. Because below RMAN configuration parameters will get updated automatically after plugin installation .

CONFIGURE DATAFILE BACKUP COPIES FOR DEVICE TYPE SBT_TAPE TO 1; # default

CONFIGURE ARCHIVELOG BACKUP COPIES FOR DEVICE TYPE SBT_TAPE TO 1; # default

CONFIGURE CHANNEL DEVICE TYPE 'SBT_TAPE' PARMS 'ENV=(OB_DEVICE=tape1)';

which will lead them interupt in current Tape backup.

The DBAs should save a copy of their original script before installing the Veeam Plug-in. The thread referenced should answer their questions.
