Performing Configuration Backup and Restore

You can back up and restore the configuration database that stores data collected from the RHV backup proxy for the existing backup jobs, logged session records and network settings. If the proxy 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 proxy to another proxy in the RHV environment.

It is recommended that you regularly perform configuration backup for every proxy 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 proxy occur.
