Restore SharePoint Online to OnPremise

Post by CKESSLER » Oct 30, 2018 6:52 am

Dear All,

I wonder if Veeam Backup for Office365 supports the restore of sites FROM SharePoint Online TO a SharePoint OnPremise.

I'm currently in a test phase of the O365 agent and backed up several SharePoint Online sites.
Now when I try to restore them, the only option is to restore again to a Online site.

Does anyone know if that is supported?

Thank you,
Christoph

Christoph,

It is not. Due to the differences. In the background we are investigating if this can be solved, but at this moment the way the templates and such work, it is not directly possible I'm afraid

Mike,
Thank you for the quick response.

So the only way to extract data from a SharePoint Online backup is to export it to file system?
This would only be possible for document libraries and I guess it causes the loose of SharePoint specific metadata and permissions.
And SharePoint lists can not be exported.

Yes, that is correct I'm afraid. While it is said that O365 runs a version of SharePoint on-premises in the cloud, the truth is that it is a modified version and not everything is matching

Hi all,

will this feature be added in the future? I have an customer who would like to have some kind of an exit strategy to migrate his o365 sharepoint content back to on premise.

Patric,

I can't answer that yet. Some parts certainly will be possible but not all data will be possible. Think certain metadata that doesn't exist on 1 side and vice versa. Also certain layout features can be different.

One thing is certain, you will always be able to keep your documents and lists

My customer is considering to backup the Sharepoint online with VBO and restore to on-pre Sharepoint.
According to this forums's thread, it`s impossbile to restore from Sharepoint online backup to on premise Sharepoint.


Is item-by-item restore possible using Veeam explorer from Sharepoint online backup to on premise Sharepoint? or impossible?

Best regards,

Hideto,

Not at this moment. Our DEV's have investigated this, and there are certain possibilities as I described above but I can't say yet when this will come to the product

Hi Mike-san,

I understand -:)
BTW, I understand that VBO supports the restore of sites FROM Exchange Online TO Exchange OnPremise. Is this correct?

I am also worried about Exchange, knowing that Sharepoint doesn't support the restore from online to onpremise.

Hi Hideto-san,

Correct, you can restore from Exchange Online to On-prem but that on-prem organization has to be added to VBO so it can be reached
