Database Instance Rollback

Last updated: 2019-08-14 16:14:17



TencentDB for SQL Server provides a rollback tool for rolling back an instance. Historical data can be re-constructed using periodical image backup and real-time transactions to roll back the instance to a specified time where the time slices of all data are guaranteed to be identical. The full and log backups in TencentDB for SQL Server are retained for 7 days. Therefore, you can roll back the instance data to any time point within the past 7 days. This document describes how to roll back an instance in the console.


  1. Log in to the TencentDB for SQL Server Console, click the instance name to enter the instance details page, and click Rollback in the top-right corner.
  2. Select the database to be rolled back, set the rollback time, decide if the original database should be overwritten, and click Next.
  3. After confirming that the parameters are correctly set, click Rollback to start the rollback task.
  4. Return to the instance list. You should see the instance status change to task in progress. You can view the rollback progress in the task list.
  5. The rollback task is successful. As "Overwrite Original Database" was not selected, you can see the generated duplicate database on the database management page.
  • Rollback is currently only supported for local instances, and you can choose to overwrite the original database or generate a duplicate database.
  • If you choose to generate a duplicate database, note that the disk capacity after rolling back cannot exceed the disk capacity available for the instance; otherwise, rollback will fail.
