Application Item Restore from Cloud Repository

Veeam Logoby Sand » Tue Nov 14, 2017 1:57 pm

Hi

We cannot restore single application items (exchange, AD, SQL) from an agent backup located on a cloud repository - the opiton "restore application items" is greyed out.
Restore guest files works.

In veeam cloud connect guide the point "Application items restore" has no further explaination nor is it a hyperlink as the others.

https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backup/cloud/cloud_connect_use_cloud_repo.html?ver=95

Are there any limitaions regarding app items restore for agents on cloud repositorys?

Thanks

I am also having this issue. Trying to work out if its a design limitation or if I'm missing something

Hi folks,

Try to run a file level recovery via B&R console, then find the desired database, right click it and you should see the corresponding Explorer option

Hi

There is no such option when I open the "restore guest files" browser. In fact, the whole restore option is greyed out (but I think this is a known limitaion when restoring agent cloud backups from a B&R Server). I can only "copy to" the files.

We have a B&R Server, a Cloud Connect Server and a Veeam Agent. The agent previously backed up to a local repository on the B&R Server. Now we changed the target of the Agent to Cloud Connect. The Agent Backup files (now stored on the cloud repo) appear on the B&R Server, and this is where I start the restore session from.

When starting the restore from the Agent side I have no option either - but I think the agent does not have an exchange explorer so this is expected.

Or did you mean restoring the database file and then opening this file with the exchange explorer?

Will there be an application item restore option in yesterday launched Veeam Availability Console?


Thanks

Hi

So, is there a way to restore Application Items (Exchange, AD, SQL) from Agent Backups made to a Cloud Repository?

Thanks

Sand,

True, Agent does not have Explorers with it, try to start File Level Recovery via Backup and Replication console instead (your backup server should be connected with service provider repository used by agent).

Hi Dima

I am not looking for file level recovery, I am looking for application item recovery.
I can start guest file restore via backup and Replication console,but I can not start application items restore via backup an replication console.
I also cannot start appliaction items restore from inside the file level recovery (when choosing the sql database for example).

What is the correct way to restore application items (exchange/sql/active directory) from agent backups made to a cloud repository?

Thanks

According to the Veeam Agent documentation, you will go through the same process as performing the application restore from the Veeam B&R console. https://helpcenter.veeam.com/docs/backu ... tml?ver=95
