Backup Job in Veeam Backup & Replication

In this article

    After you start a backup process in Oracle RMAN, Veeam Backup & Replication creates a backup job. 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 start or edit Oracle RMAN backup jobs in the Veeam Backup & Replication console. You can manage backup operations only on the Oracle side using RMAN.

    Note

    The progress bar of a running Oracle database backup job is available only for backups of standalone Oracle databases. It is not available for Oracle RAC backups.
