Metalogix Backup for SharePoint 6.9 - User Guide

Product Overview Managing licenses Upgrading Metalogix Backup for SharePoint Configuring Metalogix Backup for SharePoint Backing up and restoring farm components Restoring granular objects

Mounting and Linking a Content Database

There are two ways to restore SharePoint objects - by mounting a content database that contains the object(s) to restore, and by creating a link to an already-mounted content database. From there, components can be granular-restored. Older versions of Metalogix Backup for SharePoint enabled users to create their own granular backups. These backups can be used to restore objects as well.

Mounting or linking content databases is done through the use of the Mount and Link Content Database Wizard. The wizard mounts content databases from BAK files, MDF/LDF files, Metalogix Farm Backups or SharePoint Full Farm Backups, or creates a link to a content database that has already been mounted. This operation allows you to copy the selected files to a staging location if the Backup Service does not have permission to access these files. The following are the mount source types:

·Metalogix Full Farm Backup

·SQL Server Backup (BAK) File - including full, differential, and transaction log

·SQL Server Data and Log (MDF/LDF) File

·SharePoint Full Farm Backup

·Link to Content Database

If you use a staging path while mounting a content database, the staging path used must be located on a machine where the Backup Service user is a local administrator, otherwise you cannot mount the database.

info

NOTE: The SQL server Backup Service is used to mount content databases by default. To allow other Backup Services (such as the primary or secondary Backup Service) to perform the mount instead, reorder the preferred mounting services using the "priorityMountOperation" key in the PBManagementService configuration file accordingly.
