Required Backup Job Settings

You can create backups of SAP HANA machines using application backup policies managed by Veeam Backup & Replication and backup jobs managed by a standalone Veeam Plug-in for SAP HANA.

  • To create an application backup policy managed by Veeam Backup & Replication, do the following:
  1. Add the source SAP HANA machine to a protection group. For more information, see the Creating Protection Groups section of the Veeam Plug-in for Enterprise Applications Guide.
  2. Create an application backup policy using the protection group. For more information, see the Creating SAP HANA Backup Policy section of the Veeam Plug-in for Enterprise Applications Guide.
  • To create a backup job managed by a standalone Veeam Plug-in for SAP HANA, you can use HDBSQL scripts, or native SAP HANA tools such as SAP HANA studio and SAP HANA Cockpit. For more information, see the Database Protection section of the Veeam Plug-in for Enterprise Applications Guide.

After the backups are successfully created using either of these two methods, you can use Veeam Explorer for SAP HANA to restore your SAP HANA data.
