Import-VBRConfiguration (obsolete) Note:

This cmdlet is obsolete and not supported.

Applies to

Platform: VMware, Hyper-V

Syntax

Import-VBRConfiguration -FileName <String> [-DatabaseName <String>] [-WarningAction <ActionPreference>] [-WarningVariable <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

This cmdlet imports configuration file of Veeam Backup & Replication that was previously backed up.

With configuration backup, you can store a copy of your host configuration: your virtual infrastructure, jobs configuration, Veeam Backup & Replication settings and other data. You can restore configuration in case the Veeam Backup & Replication host is failed or configuration is corrupted.

By default, configuration backups are stored to the C:\backup\VeeamConfigBackup\%BackupServer% folder on the Veeam backup server.

You can select any configuration file to restore to.

You can restore configuration data to the default Veeam Backup & Replication SQL database or to another database. If you restore to the default database, it is recommended to backup the database first.

Run Export-VBRConfiguration (obsolete) to retrieve and export your current configuration.
