Performing Configuration Backup and Restore

In this article

    With Veeam PN, you can back up and restore configuration of Veeam PN appliances: the network hub and site gateways.

    When you perform configuration backup, Veeam PN creates a file of the BAK format that contains all configuration settings you have configured for the Veeam PN appliance. You can create a configuration backup manually to capture the Veeam PN appliance state at a specific point in time. Whenever you need to roll back the Veeam PN appliance to that specific point in time, you can restore its configuration from the configuration backup file.

    Important

    Mind the following limitations:

    • When you restore from the configuration backup of Veeam PN 2.0 to Veeam PN 2.1, the Alerts and SMTP settings change to default values.
    • Azure network hub: You cannot restore from the configuration backup of Veeam PN 2.0 to Veeam PN 2.1.

    To create a configuration backup:

    1. Log in to the Veeam PN portal.
    2. In the configuration menu on the left, click Settings.
    3. Click the System tab.
    4. In the Backup/Restore Settings section, click Backup. Veeam PN will save all configured settings for the Veeam PN appliance to the config.back file and download this file to the default download location on your machine.

    There is a misspelling right here:

     

    I want to let the Veeam Documentation Team know about that.
