Restoring a SQL Server Database in the ServiceNow Commvault Application

You can restore Microsoft SQL Server databases in the ServiceNow Commvault application.

You can perform the following types of database restores:

  • In-place restore, which restores the database to the server from which it was backed up.
  • Out-of-place restore, which does one of the following:
    • Restores the database to the server from which it was backed up, but allows you to rename the database and select a new file location for it.
    • Restores the database to a different server.

Procedure

    The SQL Server Instances window appears.

  2. On the Databases tab, in the Actions column, click the action button for the database that you want to restore, and then click Restore.

    The SQL DB Restore window appears.
