Extracting Application Databases

Before you start restoring application items with Veeam Explorer, you need to extract application databases from a storage snapshot. You can do it in two ways:

  • You can use the wizard. In this case, Veeam Backup & Replication will automatically extract application databases from a storage snapshot and open it in Veeam Explorer. For more information, see Using Application Item Extract Wizard.
  • You can restore VM guest OS files from a backup of a virtualized application server, manually locate application databases in Veeam Backup browser, double-click the database file, click Application Items and then select the application on the ribbon. For more information on performing guest OS file restore, see section Guest OS File Restore.
