Renaming or relocating a database

The plug-in lets you restore a database to a different name during restore. The renaming of a database can be useful if you do not want to overwrite the existing version and want to create a copy of the database. You can also relocate the database to a different directory while restoring it with the plug-in.

1
In the Navigation pane, click Create Restore Job, select Plug‑in for SQL Server from the Plugin Type list, select the applicable saveset, and click Next.
2
With the database selected on the Create Selection Set page, select Rename from the context menu.
3
In the Rename/Relocate dialog box, enter the applicable information:
Rename: Enter the new name.
Relocate: Enter the new path.

Restoring a database to an alternate instance

With the plug-in’s VDI-based backup method, you can restore a database to an alternate instance of SQL Server running on the database server. The procedure for performing this type of a restore is outlined in the following topic. This process does not support the use of AlwaysOn Availability Groups.

IMPORTANT: If you intend to restore a database to an alternate instance that resides on the same server and the original database still exists, use the Rename/Relocate option described previously in Renaming or relocating a database. Use this option to rename or move the datafiles to ensure that they do not overwrite or conflict with the same files in the original database.

Same version of SQL Server: Both the source instance from which the data was backed up and the target instance to which the data is to be restored must be running the same version of SQL Server.
Instance configured for access: The instance to which the database is to be restored must be accessible to the plug-in. To set up the instance for access, see Configuring authentication details.
2
In the Navigation pane, click Create Restore Job, select Plug‑in for SQL Server from the Plugin Type list, select the applicable saveset, and click Next.
3
On the Create Selection Set page, click Edit Plugin Options, and configure the restore options by following the instructions outlined in Restoring data from Online VDI backups.
4
In addition, set the Target Instance parameter.
To do so, specify the name of the instance to which the selected database is to be restored. You can either specify the fully qualified name, that is, <HostName>\<InstanceName> — for example, WIN2K3\SQLINSTANCE2 or the instance name, for example, SQLINSTANCE2, in this field.

Restoring data to an alternate SQL Server

Similar to the plug-in’s ability to restore databases to a different SQL Server Instance on the same database server, you can target a different SQL Server during the restore process. This process does not support the use of AlwaysOn Availability Groups.

This functionality is useful during disaster recovery operations. You can restore a database to a different SQL Server by using the steps provided in the following topics. You can also use this process to restore a NetVault Backup Virtual Client to a standalone NetVault Backup Client.

IMPORTANT: Microsoft’s VSS backup method does not support restoring a VSS-based backup to an alternate instance; therefore, restoring VSS-based backups to an alternate instance with Plug‑in for SQL Server is not supported.

In a disaster recovery scenario, use this procedure to restore the master and the msdb database backups. After restoring the master database, restart the server. Restore and recover each individual database.
Same version of SQL Server installed: The SQL Server version must be the same as the version running on the existing database server.
NetVault Backup software and the Plug‑in for SQL Server installed: The same version of NetVault Backup software and the plug-in must be installed and configured on the new restore target.
Client added to the NetVault Backup Server: The target machine must be added to the NetVault Backup Server by using the Manage Clients page of the NetVault Backup WebUI.
Instance of SQL Server must exist on the new restore target: An instance of SQL Server must exist on the new restore target. This instance serves as the target of the relocation restore. Not only must this instance be properly set up and configured in SQL Server, it must also be accessible to the plug-in on the new restore target. To set up the instance for access, see Configuring authentication details.
2
Restore the master and the msdb database backups.
IMPORTANT: When you perform a restore to an alternate server, you cannot modify the name or destination of the restored master database. The master database is restored to the location of the current master database in the target for the restore.
3
After restoring the master database, restart the server.
a
In the Navigation pane, click Create Restore Job, select Plug‑in for SQL Server from the Plugin Type list, select the applicable saveset, and click Next.
b
On the Create Selection Set page, click Edit Plugin Options, and configure the restore options by following the instructions outlined in Restoring data from Online VDI backups.
c
In addition, set the Target Instance parameter.
d
Click OK to save the settings, and then click Next.
e
In Job Name, specify a name for the job if you do not want to use the default setting.
f
In the Target Client list, select the new restore target.
g
Use the Schedule, Source Options, and Advanced Options lists to configure any additional required options.
h
Click Save or Save & Submit, whichever is applicable.
You can monitor progress on the Job Status page and view the logs on the View Logs page. For more information, see the Quest NetVault Backup Administrator’s Guide.
