Installing Plug-in on Linux

In this article

    Veeam Plug-in for Oracle RMAN is an additional component of Veeam Backup & Replication, and the installation package of the plug-in is included in the Veeam Backup & Replication installation ISO file.

    Veeam Plug-in for Oracle RMAN must be installed on a machine where the target Oracle Database is deployed.


    To install Veeam Plug-in, the /opt/veeam directory must be writable.

    To install Veeam Plug-in on a Linux machine, perform the following steps.

    1. Mount the Veeam Backup & Replication installation disk.

    If you deploy Veeam backup infrastructure for the first time, you can download Veeam Backup & Replication at:

    1. In the installation disk folder, go to Plugins\Oracle RMAN\Linux.
    2. You can install the plug-in using the RPM package or .TAR.GZ bundle. Do one of the following, depending on the type of package suitable for your OS. Note that operations in the terminal of the Linux machine require root privileges.
    • To install from the RPM package:
    1. Upload the VeeamPluginforOracleRMAN-X.X.X.XXXX.x86_64.rpm package to the Oracle server. If you need the 32-bit version, choose the i386 package.
    2. To install Veeam Plug-in, run the following command:

    rpm -i VeeamPluginforOracleRMAN-X.X.X.XXXX.x86_64.rpm

    • To install from the TAR.GZ bundle:
    1. Upload the VeeamPluginforOracleRMAN.tar.gz file to the Oracle server.
    2. Create the /opt/veeam directory.

    mkdir /opt/veeam

    1. Unpack the bundle to the /opt/veeam directory:

    tar -xzvf -i VeeamPluginforOracleRMAN.tar.gz -C /opt/veeam

    I want to report a typo

    There is a misspelling right here:


    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
