Step 3. Choose Restore Mode

At the Restore Mode step of the wizard, do the following:

  1. Choose whether you want to restore Cloud SQL instances to the original or to a new location.


Due to technical limitations in Google Cloud, Veeam Backup & Replication does not support restore to the original location if the source Cloud SQL instance is still present in the location, if it has been recently deleted (less than a week ago), or if its name is reserved.

  1. Click Pick account to use to select a service account whose permissions will be used to perform the restore operation. For more information on the required permissions for service accounts, see the Veeam Backup for Google Cloud User Guide, section Service Account Permissions.

For a service account to be displayed in the list of available accounts, it must be added to the Veeam Backup for Google Cloud appliance as described in the Veeam Backup for Google Cloud User Guide, section Adding Service Accounts.


By default, to perform the restore operation, Veeam Backup & Replication uses permission of the service account that has been used either to protect the source SQL instance, or to update information on restore points created for the instance while rescanning Google Cloud infrastructure.
