About recovering a SQL Server database

You can use the on-host Quick Recovery snapshot set to quickly recover a database after logical corruption.

You can also use a snapshot set to recover a database after production volumes are lost due to hardware failure. This recovery assumes that the failure does not affect the disk or disks where the snapshot set volumes are located.

You can use either the VSS SQL Restore Wizard from the Veritas Enterprise Administrator (VEA) console or the vxsnap restore command. Both of these methods integrate with VSS to notify the SQL VSS Writer to prepare for the restore before the snapback operation and then to complete post-restore processes afterwards.

After completing the recovery, you refresh the snapshot set.
