To present Oracle database hierarchy to user, Veeam Explorer uses different ways of retrieving application-specific information from image-level backup:
- If application-aware image processing is enabled in the Guest Processing settings of a backup job, then Veeam Explorer can obtain application-specific Oracle database information from Oracle VM backup metadata. For that, Veeam Explorer communicates with Veeam backup server that keeps this information in the configuration database.
- If application-aware image processing is disabled in the Guest Processing settings of a backup job, then Veeam Explorer will need a staging Oracle server to mount selected image-level Oracle VM backup (with the databases and redo logs) to that staging server and collect the necessary information through guest scan and Oracle infrastructure analysis.
Using application information retrieved from backup, Veeam Explorer displays Oracle database hierarchy in its navigation pane where you can select the database to be restored and start 1-Click Restore or use the Restore wizard.
