Manually added databases will be displayed in the navigation tree under the Other SQL Servers Databases node.

Adding Database Files to Veeam Explorer Scope Manually 

To add multiple databases to the application scope having another database(s) being already opened, run the same command from the menu bar, or right-click any item in the navigation tree and select Add database from its shortcut menu.

Having your database successfully added to the Veeam Explorer scope, you can browse through the server instances and databases, view their properties, export and restore the databases, as well as their schema objects.

Adding Database Files to Veeam Explorer Scope Manually Important!

Keep in mind that the restore point you have selected when restoring SQL server VM becomes a reference point for the database recovery scenarios (it will be referred to as current restore point).

You can also remove database that you have manually added to Veeam Explorer scope. For that, select it in the navigation tree and click Remove Database on the toolbar, or use the shortcut menu command. If the database was added automatically (by using Microsoft SQL Item Restore wizard), this command will not be available.

Adding Database Files to Veeam Explorer Scope Manually Note:

If you plan to add a database manually, make sure the staging Microsoft SQL server is configured as described in the Staging SQL Server section.
