Question: Sharepoint Restore in B&R v8 with remote SQL DB

Veeam Logoby taurus1978 » Mon May 11, 2015 12:00 pm

Hello

i have a customer who has a SQL and Sharepoint Installation in their environment.
The Content Databse of the Sharepoint Server is located on a dedicated SQL 2008 Server.

Both VMs (SQL + Sharepoint) are backed up by VEEAM v8.

So here is my question:
How can i restore Sharepoint Items from the remote SQL DB during restore.?
Is it possible to attach the SQL DB on the other VM by using the sharepoint explorer ?
I know that there is a "Attach Databse" Button within the Sharepoint Explorer. But i dont know if i can attach a DB which is located on another VM than the sharepoint Server itself.


Thank you for any good tips on this.

regards
Patrick

Patrick, Veeam B&R should automatically locate the VM hosting SQL Server instance with the SharePoint content database during auto-discovery, provided that application-aware backup was performed successfully. If the database cannot be located, you can do that manually, using FLR.
