Performing Configuration Backup and Restore
You can back up and restore the configuration database that stores data collected from a Veeam Backup for Google Cloud appliance configuration for the existing backup policies, protected VM instances and Cloud SQL instances, deployed worker instances, connected Google Cloud projects, logged session records and so on. If the Veeam Backup for Google Cloud appliance 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 Google Cloud appliance to another appliance in Google Cloud.
It is recommended that you regularly perform configuration backup for every Veeam Backup for Google Cloud 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 Google Cloud appliances occur.
Veeam Backup for Google Cloud appliances allow you to back up and restore their configurations 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.
