Our SharePoint servers are all virtualized and are being backed up with Veeam BR with application awareness enabled. The SQL server for these SP farms is a physical server which we are backing up with VEB. I can't seem to find a way to perform recovery of SharePoint items.
If I right-click on a an SP VM backup and select "Restore application items->Microsoft SharePoint content," I am presented with a list of SharePoint sites. I select a site and click next, which immediately throws up an error dialog, "Unable to find SQL Server VM hosting the content database... Start File Level Recovery on the required VM and then launch SharePoint item recovery..."
My option then seems to be to right-click on the Endpoint Backup for the SQL server and select "Restore guest files." Clicking through that I can then select "Application Items->SharePoint" But, since this is not a SharePoint server, no content databases are shown. If I select Application Items->SQL Server, I see the database files for recovery but of course no SharePoint content items.
Is there currently any way to connect these two backups so that I can browse the backed up SP content? If the SQL server were a VM, this would work, of course.
This is in reference to my support case 01962015.
