Restoring PostgreSQL Items

To restore instances from a backup or replica of an PostgreSQL system, Veeam Backup & Replication uses Veeam Explorer for PostgreSQL.


Before you restore PostgreSQL instances, check requirements and limitations listed in the Planning and Preparation section in the Veeam Backup Explorers User Guide. One of the main requirements is that the backup or replica must be created with application-aware processing enabled.

To launch Veeam Explorer for PostgreSQL from Veeam Backup & Replication:

  1. Open the Home view.
  2. In the inventory pane, select the Backups or Replicas node.
  3. In the working area, select the necessary machine in the backup or VM replica and click Application Items > PostgreSQL on the ribbon. Alternatively, right-click the machine or VM replica and select Restore application items > PostgreSQL instances.
  4. In the opened PostgreSQL Server Database Restore wizard, select a restore point from which you want to restore instances.
  5. Specify the restore reason.

Then Veeam Backup & Replication opens Veeam Explorer for PostgreSQL. In this explorer, you can view, restore instances and so on. The detailed information is provided in the Veeam Explorer for PostgreSQL main section of the Veeam Backup Explorers User Guide. For example:

  • Information about the data restore process is in the Data Restore section.
  • Information about the instances publishing is in the Data Publishing section.
