Specifying Oracle Processing Settings

You can enable Oracle database processing settings in the properties of a volume-level backup job configured in Veeam Agent for Linux.

To enable Oracle processing settings for the backup job, use the following command:

veeamconfig aap set oracle --jobid <job_id> <oracle_options>

or

veeamconfig aap set oracle --jobname <job_name> <oracle_options>

where:

  • <job_id> — ID of the backup job for which you want to enable Oracle processing settings. You should look up the job ID in advance, before configuring the schedule, for example, with the veeamconfig job list command. To learn more, see Viewing List of Backup Jobs.
  • <job_name> — name of the backup job for which you want to enable Oracle processing settings.

Specifying Oracle Processing Settings Tip:

To view IDs or names of all existent backup jobs, you can press the Tab key right after you type the --jobid or --jobname option.

Oracle Processing Settings

You can specify the following Oracle processing settings for the backup job:

Option

Description and values

--tryprocess

Defines that Veeam Agent for Linux must continue the backup process if errors occur when processing an Oracle database. If you do not specify this option, Veeam Agent for Linux will stop the backup process if an error occurs when processing an Oracle database.

--prunelogs

The number of hours to keep Oracle archived logs or the size of archived logs to keep.

  • If you want Veeam Agent for Linux to delete archived logs that are older than <N> hours, specify the necessary value in the <N>H format, For example, 10H.
  • If you want Veeam Agent for Linux to delete archived logs that are larger than <N> GB, specify the necessary value in the <N>G format. For example: 10G.

Veeam Agent for Linux will wait for the backup job to complete successfully and then trigger archived logs truncation via Oracle Call Interface (OCI). If the backup job fails, the logs will remain untouched until the next backup job session.

--usroracleos

User account of the Veeam Agent computer OS that Veeam Agent for Linux will use to connect to the Oracle database. The account must have SYSDBA rights on the Oracle database.

You do not need to use this option if you want to use an Oracle Database user account to connect to the Oracle database. Instead, specify the necessary account with the --usroracledb option.

--usroracledb

User account of the Oracle Database system that Veeam Agent for Linux will use to connect to the Oracle database. The account must have SYSDBA rights on the Oracle database.

You do not need to use this option if you want to use a user account of the Veeam Agent computer OS to connect to the Oracle database. Instead, specify the necessary account with the --usroracleos option.

When you run the veeamconfig aap set oracle command with the --usroracledb option, Veeam Agent for Linux will prompt you to specify a password of the specified user account.

For example:

user@srv01:~$ veeamconfig aap set oracle --jobid 29bc2e1a-e35c-4efb-8d37-b7177b8ea75 --tryprocess --prunelogs 10G --usroracledb system
