Importing Backups

If you have lost the Veeam Backup & Replication database or want to import backup files on another Veeam Backup & Replication server, do the following:

  1. Copy the backup file folder to a Veeam backup repository or create a new Veeam backup repository with this folder as a subfolder.
  2. On the Veeam backup server, log in to the Veeam Backup & Replication console.
  1. Open the Backup Infrastructure view.
  1. In the inventory pane, select the Backup Repositories node.
  1. In the working area, select the required backup repository and click Rescan Repository on the ribbon. Alternatively, you can right-click the backup repository and select Rescan repository.
  1. On the SAP HANA server, set the new repository as target in the Veeam Plug-in settings:

sudo SapBackintConfigTool --set-repository

Available backup repositories:

1. serv10_repo

2. serv07_repo

Enter repository number: 1

Configuration result:


SID SH2 has been configured

  1. Start the Veeam Plug-in configuration wizard with the following parameter:

sudo SapBackintConfigTool --map-backup



  • If backup files are not imported according to instructions given above, the backup and restore jobs might fail.
  • [For backups of scale-out clusters and servers with the сustomServerName option] To avoid mapping failure, the cluster name must be the same as the name used before importing backups.
I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:


I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
