Performing Configuration Backup and Restore

You can back up and restore the configuration database that stores data collected from the backup appliance for the existing jobs and session records. If the backup appliance goes down for some reason, you can redeploy it and quickly restore its configuration from a configuration backup. You can also use a configuration backup to migrate the configuration of one backup appliance to another backup appliance in the backup infrastructure.

It is recommended that you regularly perform configuration backup for every backup appliance present in the backup infrastructure. Periodic configuration backups reduce the risk of data loss and minimize the administrative overhead costs in case any problems with the backup appliances occur.

You can run configuration backup manually on demand, or instruct Veeam Backup for OLVM and RHV to do it automatically on a regular basis. Note that the backup appliance configuration database is backed up together with the backup server configuration database. However, the backup appliance configuration restore operation does not affect the backup server configuration.
