Launching Application and Exploring Backups

To open Veeam Explorer for PostgreSQL, you can use either of the following methods:

  • Use the Restore application item option to load PostgreSQL data from a restore point created by Veeam Backup & Replication.

For more information, see the Application Item Restore section of the Veeam Backup & Replication User Guide.

  • Go to Start and click Veeam Explorer for PostgreSQL if you want to, for example, manage ongoing data recovery sessions or check the installed version of Veeam Explorer for PostgreSQL. Note that this method does not load any PostgreSQL data and does not allow you to start new data recovery sessions.

If you open Veeam Explorer for PostgreSQL from the Start menu on a machine that runs the Veeam Backup & Replication console and Veeam Explorers only, specify the following:

  • The domain name or IP address of the backup server to which you want to connect
  • The port number
  • User account credentials

Consider the following:

  • To perform recovery operations, the user account used to run Veeam Explorer for PostgreSQL must be a member of the local Administrators or Users group on the machine where Veeam Explorers Suite is installed.
  • The account must have the Veeam Backup Administrator or Veeam Restore Operator role on the backup server.

To use the account under which Veeam Explorer for PostgreSQL is running, select Use Windows session authentication.

To save the connection shortcut to the desktop, click Save shortcut in the bottom-left corner.
