Importing Backups

In this article

    Importing backup files can be helpful if the Veeam Backup & Replication configuration database is corrupted or if you want to import Veeam Plug-in backup files to another backup repository.

    To import Veeam Plug-in backup files to another backup repository, do the following:

    1. Copy the folder that contains backup files to the target backup repository connected to Veeam Backup & Replication.
    2. Use the Veeam Backup & Replication console to log on to target Veeam Backup & Replication.
    1. Open the Backup Infrastructure view.
    1. In the inventory pane of the Backup Infrastructure view, select the Backup Repositories node.
    1. In the working area, select the required backup repository and click Rescan on the ribbon. Alternatively, you can right-click the backup repository and select Rescan.

    Importing Backups 

    1. On the SAP on Oracle server, change the target backup repository in the Veeam Plug-in settings:

    sudo SapOracleBackintConfigTool --set-repository

    Available backup repositories:

    1. serv10_repo

    2. serv07_repo

    Enter repository number: 1

    Configuration result:


    SID SH2 has been configured

    1. Run the --map-backup command:

    sudo SapOracleBackintConfigTool --map-backup



    If backup files are not imported according to instructions given above, the backup and restore processes can fail.

    I want to report a typo

    There is a misspelling right here:


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