Step 4. Specify Oracle Settings

At this step of the wizard, select a location to which you want to restore databases and launch the restore.

  1. At the Specify Oracle settings field, select one of the following:
  • Restore to the original location: Veeam Explorer for Oracle checks if there are suitable Oracle home directories. If yes, the databases are restored to these home directories. If no, the databases are not restored, and Veeam Explorer for Oracle issues an error that suitable home directories have not been found.
  • Restore to a different location: Veeam Explorer for Oracle restores all databases to the custom location. To specify the Oracle home directory, click Browse and select a folder that you want to use.
  1. Click Restore.


If the account specified in the previous step is not an Oracle home user, you will be asked to provide a password to access the target Oracle home. Applicable to Oracle 12c and later versions.
