Opening Oracle Database Manually

If Veeam Backup Free Edition fails to locate an Oracle database automatically for some reason, you can use the file-level restore functionality to restore an Oracle database from the storage snapshot. You can then open the database in Veeam Explorer for Oracle.

To restore an Oracle database:

  1. Restore VM guest OS files from a backup of a virtualized Oracle server. For more information, see Restoring VM Guest OS Files (Microsoft Windows).
  2. In the Veeam Backup browser, locate the database file and double-click it or select the file and click Application Items > Oracle databases on the ribbon.

Veeam Backup Free Edition will attach the restored database to a staging server and open the database in Veeam Explorer for Oracle. After that, you can restore the database to the necessary Oracle server.

Detailed information about Veeam Explorer for Oracle is provided in documentation for Veeam Explorer for Oracle. To access the documentation, do one of the following:

  • Open Veeam Explorer for Oracle and press [F1].
  • Open Veeam Explorer for Oracle. From the main menu of Veeam Explorer for Oracle, select Help > Online Help.
