Re: Backup restore

Hello @Satishnikam ,

For complete ePO backup and restore process we have an article KB66616

And if you want to only go with restoring ePO snapshot then refer to @sarush_srivasta post.

Re: Backup restore

The articles are going to help. And, the snapshot feature is really a great improvement from the way we used to do it. And, it should be pretty straight forward if:

The SQL server is not on the same computer as ePO.

The new server will have the same name and IP address.

If one or both of these are not as stated, then you will have additional steps to take, like making a backup of your SQL database if it's on the same server as ePO. Etc. Anyway, follow the instructions, and, test it on dev server first if you can.
