Purpose

This article documents how to disable the processing of Oracle instances by Application-Aware Processing without disabling Application-Aware Processing processing for other applications running on the same machine.

Solution

Disable Oracle Processing for a VM Protected by Veeam Backup & Replication

Windows OS

Add the following registry value within the Guest OS of the protected VM:

Key Location: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication
Value Name: DisableOracleProcessing 
Value Type: DWORD (32-bit) Value
Value Data: 1

A value of 1 enables the registry settings, which disables oracle processing.
 

Linux OS

Create a file named VeeamOracleAgent.xml in the folder where the oracleagent is located in the guest (/tmp by default) with the following string:

<config DisableOracleProcessing="true"></config>

 

Disable Oracle Processing for a Machine Protect using Veeam Agent for Microsoft Windows

Add the following registry value within the guest OS:

Key Location: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Endpoint Backup
Value Name: DisableOracleProcessing 
Value Type: DWORD (32-bit) Value
Value Data: 1

A value of 1 enables the registry settings, which disables oracle processing.

More information

  • There is no way to exclude specific Oracle databases from being processed by Application-Aware Processing.
  • As an alternative to completely disabling Oracle processing, it is also possible to force Veeam Backup & Replication to skip NOARCHIVELOG mode databases without warnings. To enable this behavior, create OracleSkipNoArchiveLogDB (DWORD) registry value under the HKLM\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication key on the processed VM. For VMs running Linux, add OracleSkipNoArchiveLogDB="true" to the VeeamOracleAgent.xml config file instead.
