Data Restore

With the configured Veeam Plug-in for Oracle RMAN, you can restore Oracle databases from Veeam Plug-in backups that reside on Veeam backup repositories.

You can use the built-in Oracle functionality or Veeam Explorer for Oracle to restore databases. Restore operations are performed on the Oracle side.

Tip

For details on how to use Veeam Explorer for Oracle for restore operations, see the Restoring Oracle RMAN Backups section of the Veeam Explorers User Guide.

Depending on the available type of Veeam Plug-in backups that will be the source for the restored databases, you can perform the following restore operations:

  • Restoring from backup.

Restore Oracle databases from a Veeam Plug-in backup to the original server by using the built-in Oracle functionality. For details, see Restore to Original Server.

You can also restore Oracle databases from a Veeam Plug-in backup to another server. For details, see Restore to Another Server.

  • Restoring from a backup copy.

Restore Oracle databases from backup copies created for Veeam Plug-in for Oracle RMAN backups. For details, see Restore from Backup Copy.

Depending on the location of Veeam Plug-in backups that will be the source for the restored databases, you can also perform the following restore operations:

  • Restoring a control file from autobackup.

Restore the Oracle database control file if you want to restore the database to a new location where the control file does not exist, or if the database control file is lost or corrupted. For details, see Restore of Control File from Autobackup.

  • Restoring from hardened repositories.

Restore Oracle databases from hardened repositories by creating new backup job metadata files (.VACM) with data from available backup metadata files (.VASM). For details, see Restore from Hardened Repository.
