Retrieving Tenant Data from Archive Tier
The SP can retrieve tenant data from the archive tier. This operation is required if the tenant needs to restore data from a restore point that was offloaded to the archive tier: it is not possible to restore data from such restore points immediately. To perform the retrieve operation, the SP must use Veeam PowerShell cmdlets.
To retrieve the tenant data, follow these steps:
- Obtain the restore point ID from the tenant.
If the tenant is unsure which restore point to use, or if you manage the tenant Veeam Backup & Replication environment, ask the tenant to provide you with information about the point in time to which the tenant wants to restore data. Then, you can use the Get-VBRCloudArchiveRestorePoint PowerShell cmdlet to get a list of restore points located in the archive tier and obtain the restore point ID. For detailed instructions, see the Get-VBRCloudArchiveRestorePoint section in the Veeam PowerShell Reference.
- Run the Publish-VBRCloudArchiveRestorePoint PowerShell cmdlet. This cmdlet retrieves tenant data from archive storage and places them in the capacity tier of the scale-out backup repository.
Use the restore point ID as a parameter value when performing the operation. For detailed instructions, see the Publish-VBRCloudArchiveRestorePoint section in the Veeam PowerShell Reference.
- After the data is retrieved, notify the tenant that the data is ready. The tenant can then restore the data from the specified restore point.
