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.
- From the ServiceNow navigation pane, go to SQL Servers.
The SQL Server Instances window appears.
- 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.
- To perform an in-place restore, on the Inplace restore tab, click the Submit button.
Caution: During an in-place restore, the existing production database is overwritten by the version that you are restoring.
- To perform an out-of-place restore, complete the following steps:
- Click the Out of place restore tab.
- In the Destination Server list, select the server where you want to restore the database.
