Licensing

To use the Veeam Plug-in functionality, you must have a valid Veeam Backup & Replication license. The licenses are installed and managed on the Veeam Backup & Replication instance that is connected to the Veeam Plug-in server. If there are no available license instances or sockets, Veeam Plug-in backup jobs fail.

For details on Veeam licensing terminology and available packages, see:

Licensed Objects

An Oracle server is assumed protected if it has been processed by a Veeam Plug-in backup job in the last 31 days. Servers protected by Veeam Plug-ins can be licensed in two ways:

A socket is consumed from the license only if the hypervisor where protected servers reside is added to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure. If the hypervisor is not added to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure, an instance unit will be consumed from the license. To learn how to add a hypervisor to the Veeam Backup & Replication infrastructure, see the Virtualization Servers and Hosts section of the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

A machine protected by both Veeam Plug-in and Veeam Backup & Replication will consume a license only once. For example, you have an Oracle DB server that you back up using Veeam Plug-in. You also back up this server using image-level backup functionality of Veeam Backup & Replication. In this case, only one license will be consumed.

Important

[For Oracle RAС] The license is required for all cluster nodes, even if Veeam Plug-in is installed only on one of the nodes.

I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:

 

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