Using the Oracle Restore Wizard

When you run the Oracle Database Restore wizard, Veeam Backup & Replication automatically extracts an Oracle database from the storage snapshot and opens it in Veeam Explorer for Oracle.

As part of this procedure, Veeam Backup & Replication performs the following actions:

  1. [For snapshots created by a snapshot-only job with VSS]: Veeam Backup & Replication opens the database in Veeam Explorer for Oracle.
  2. Veeam Backup & Replication creates a clone/virtual copy of the storage snapshot and mounts the clone/virtual copy to an ESXi host.
  3. Veeam Backup & Replication accesses the configuration file of the virtualized Oracle server (VMX) on the snapshot clone/virtual copy and uses this configuration file to register a temporary VM on the ESXi host.
  4. Veeam Backup & Replication mounts disks of the Oracle server to the temporary VM.
  5. Veeam Backup & Replication locates the Oracle database and attaches the database to a staging Oracle server.
  6. [For snapshots created in other ways than by a snapshot-only job with VSS]: Veeam Backup & Replication opens the database in Veeam Explorer for Oracle.

Before you restore an Oracle database from the storage snapshot, check prerequisites. Then use the Oracle Database Restore wizard to restore the Oracle database.

  1. Launch the Oracle Database Restore wizard
  2. Select a VM
  3. Select a restore point
  4. Select an ESXi host for snapshot mounting
  5. Specify a restore reason
  6. Open the database in Veeam Explorer for Oracle
I want to report a typo

There is a misspelling right here:

 

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