Restoring the Entire Instance

You can browse and restore backed up data for an entire instance.

Before You Begin

Perform a backup operation.


  1. From the navigation pane, click Protect > Big data.

    The Instances page appears.

  2. In the Restore column for the instance that you want to restore, click Restore.

    The Backup content page appears.

  3. To select all the data, select the Name check box, and then click Restore.

    The Restore dialog box appears.

  4. Complete one of the following tasks depending on the type of restore operation you are running:
    • To perform an out-of-place restore operation, select the Out of place tab, and then select destination instance for the restore operation.
    • For an in-place restore operation, the destination instance remains the same as the source instance.
  5. To have the software invoke the sstableloader to stream data across the cluster nodes, select the Use SSTableLoader tool check box.

    Select a staging path that has enough free space to hold the sstables for the instance that you want to restore.

    Note: It is mandatory to select the Use SSTableLoader tool check box while performing an out-of-place restore operation.

  6. You can enable or disable the Recover database option depending on one of the following tasks that you want to perform:
    • To restore the data and update the data directory with the restored data, enable the Recover database option.
    • To copy the files to the nodes and not update the data directory, disable the Recover database option, and then provide a staging path.
  7. In the Number of streams box, type the number of streams the software uses to run the restore operation.
  8. Click OK.
