Restore from Backup Copy

In this article

    You can restore from backups and backup copies. To restore from backup copies, you must enable the restore from backup copy option in the Veeam Plug-in wizard.

    If the restore from backup copy option is enabled, you cannot back up databases using Veeam Plug-in, and you cannot restore from backups created by primary Veeam Plug-in backup jobs. You can restore only from backup copy files until you disable the restore from backup copy option.

    Important

    Mind the following:

    • You can restore from Veeam Plug-in backups using Veeam Explorer for Oracle, even if the restore from backup copy option is enabled.
    • If you want to restore from a backup copy to another server, see Restore from Backup Copy to Another Server.
