Mount application backups

Contributors netapp-soumikd

SnapCenter does not support restore of Oracle and HANA backups to alternate host. Thus, Cloud Backup for Applications allows you to mount the Oracle and HANA backups to the given host.

What you will need

If you want to mount a backup that was moved to object store from secondary storage, you should add the primary working environment details and set the IP space. For more information, see Set IP space of the primary working environment.

Steps

  1. In BlueXP UI, click Protection > Backup and recovery > Applications.

  2. In the Filter By field, select Type and from the drop-down either select SAP HANA or Oracle.

  3. Click icon to select the action corresponding to the protected application and select View Details.

  4. Click icon to select the action corresponding to the backup and select Mount.

    1. Specify one of the following:

      1. For NAS environment, specify the FQDN or IP address of the host to which alternate volumes restored from object store are to be exported.

      2. For SAN environment, specify the initiators of the host to which LUNs of alternate volume restored from object store are to be mapped.

    2. Specify the suffix that will be added to the alternate volume name.

    3. If the snapshot is in archival storage, specify the priority to retrieve your data from the archival storage.

    4. Click Mount.

This operation mounts only the storage on the given host. You should manually mount the filesystem and bring up the database. After utilizing the alternate volume, the storage Administrator can delete the volume from the ONTAP cluster.
