Configuring Veeam Plug-in for Oracle RMAN

By default, RMAN sends backups to a native RMAN location on disk (DEFAULT DEVICE TYPE TO DISK). When you configure Veeam Plug-in, the default device type is changed to SBT_TAPE, which gives control over backup media management to Veeam Plug-in. Thus, after you deploy Veeam Plug-in on an Oracle server, you can perform all backup and restore operations in the Oracle RMAN console. Veeam Plug-in compresses, deduplicates database backups and transfers them to a backup repository connected to Veeam Backup & Replication.

To use Veeam Plug-in you must configure the connection between the Oracle server, Veeam Backup & Replication server and backup repositories where backup files will be stored.
