If a computer protected with Veeam Agent for Linux runs an Oracle, MySQL or PostgreSQL database system, you can enable application-aware processing to create a transactionally consistent backup. The transactionally consistent backup guarantees proper recovery of databases without data loss.
Before you start working on the General tab, check the following at the Guest Processing step of the wizard:
- The Enable application-aware processing check box is selected.
- In the Application-Aware Processing Options window, a necessary protection group or individual computer is added to the list.
For more information, see Guest Processing Settings.
Application Processing Settings
- At the Guest Processing step of the wizard, click Applications.
- In the Application-Aware Processing Options window, select the necessary object, click Edit.
- On the General tab, in the Applications section, specify the behavior scenario for application-aware processing:
- Select Require successful processing if you want Veeam Agent for Linux to process databases. With this option selected, if an error occurs when processing a database, Veeam Agent for Linux will stop the backup process.
- Select Try application processing, but ignore failures if you want Veeam Agent for Linux to process databases. With this option selected, if an error occurs when processing a database, Veeam Agent for Linux will not stop the backup process. Instead, Veeam Agent for Linux will skip this database and proceed to the next one. Information about the skipped database will be displayed in a warning message in the job session statistics. After the backup process completes, you will be able to restore data from the backup and restore databases that were successfully processed during backup.
- Select Disable application processing if you do not want Veeam Agent for Linux to process databases. If you select this option, the Oracle, MySQL and PostgreSQL tabs of the Processing Settings window will become unavailable. You still will be able to specify script settings for the job on the Scripts tab of the window.
