Backup Job in Veeam Backup & Replication

Tip

If you want to configure or manage an application backup policy for Veeam Plug-in operating in the managed mode, see Working with Application Policies.

After you start a backup process with BRBACKUP, Veeam Backup & Replication creates a backup job object. You can use this job to view the statistics on the backup process, generate backup job reports or you can also disable the backup job.

You cannot launch or edit SAP on Oracle backup job objects in the Veeam Backup & Replication console. You can manage backup operations only on the SAP on Oracle side using BR*Tools.

Consider that Veeam Backup & Replication generates the backup job name based on names of the SAP on Oracle server and selected repository.

Note

Due to specifics of the SAP on Oracle backup process, the progress bar of a running SAP on Oracle backup job is not available.

To view details of a backup job process, do the following:

  1. Open the Veeam Backup & Replication console.
  2. In the Home view, expand the Jobs node and click Backup.
  3. In the list of jobs, select the BR*Tools backup job to see details of the current backup process or the last backup job session.
