You would then just restore the complete vm snapshot, but should ensure it is a recent one to not lose changes.

Hello @Vinay555 

Thanks for your post.

I hope you have referred KB66616.

After taking the ePO  Server Snapshot you have to take a backup of the ePO Database as well.

Once the database backup is done then only proceed for the Disaster Recovery.

Hi ,

Unfortunately we  didn't take the backup folders or ePo snapshot using server task. But we have taken the server Instance snapshot where ePo and DB are on same server. Could you please help us in that.

 

Thanks,

Vinay.

Hello @Vinay555 

Thanks for your response.

Please confirm the below:

What is Server Instance Snapshot?

There are couple of ways customer preforms the Disaster Recovery Snapshot:

1) Taking backup of the ePO Server Six Folders manually + ePO Database backup.

2) Running the ePO Server Snapshot + ePO Database Backup 

3) Taking backup of the Complete VM.

So for disaster recovery we need to be sure that we have the backups available and for more details please refer KB66616

Two part series on steps for Disaster Recovery. I don't know if it will help but might give you some insight.
