Performing Configuration Backup and Restore
You can back up and restore the configuration database that stores data collected from a Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance configuration for the existing backup policies, protected Azure VMs, Azure SQL databases, Azure file shares, worker instance configurations, logged session records and so on. If the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure goes down for some reason, you can reinstall it and quickly restore its configuration from a configuration backup. You can also use a configuration backup to migrate the configuration of one Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance to another appliance in Microsoft Azure.
It is recommended that you regularly perform configuration backup for every Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance added to the backup infrastructure. Periodic configuration backups reduce the risk of data loss and minimize the administrative overhead costs in case any problems with the Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliance occur.
Veeam Backup for Microsoft Azure appliances allows you to back up and restore their configuration directly from the Web UI. However, when you add an appliance to the backup infrastructure, this functionality is disabled and you become able to back up and restore the appliance configuration from the Veeam Backup & Replication console only.
