    Return Type

    Example 1

    This example shows how to create Oracle processing settings for a Veeam Agent job that backs up Linux computers.

    1. Run Get-VBRCredentials to specify the credentials to connect to the Oracle database. Save the result to the $creds variable.
    2. Run New-VBROracleProcessingOptions with the $creds variable.

    $creds = Get-VBRCredentials

    New-VBROracleProcessingOptions -Credentials $creds

    Example 2

    This command creates Oracle processing settings for a Veeam Agent job that backs up Windows computers. The job will run with the following options:

    • Veeam Backup & Replication will trigger the truncation of the logs if they exceed 17 GB.
    • Veeam Backup & Replication will back up the archived logs every 25 minutes.

    New-VBROracleProcessingOptions -ArchivedLogAction DeleteBySize -ArchiveLogDeletionSize 17 -ArchiveLogBackupPeriod 25 -ArchiveLogRetainAction -EnableArchiveLogBackup
