SnapCenter supports volume-based SnapRestore (VBSR), Single File SnapRestore, and connect-and-copy restore types for automatically discovered SAP HANA databases.

Volume-based SnapRestore (VBSR) is performed in NFS environments for the following scenarios:

  • When the backup selected for restore is taken on releases earlier than SnapCenter 4.3, and only if the Complete Resourceoption is selected

  • When the backup selected for restore is taken in SnapCenter 4.3, and if the Volume Revert option is selected

Single File SnapRestore is performed in NFS environments for the following scenarios:

  • When the backup selected for restore is taken in SnapCenter 4.3, and if only the Complete Resource option is selected

  • For multitenant database containers (MDC), when the backup selected for restore is taken on SnapCenter 4.3, and the Tenant Database option is selected

  • When the backup selected is from a SnapMirror or SnapVault secondary location, and the Complete Resource option is selected

Single File SnapRestore is performed in SAN environments for the following scenarios:

  • When backups are taken on releases earlier than SnapCenter 4.3, and only if the Complete Resource option is selected

  • When backups are taken in SnapCenter 4.3, and only if the Complete Resource option is selected

  • When the backup is selected from a SnapMirror or SnapVault secondary location, and the Complete Resource option is selected

Connect-and-copy based restore is performed in SAN environments for the following scenario:
