The LaMa Service Dashboard allows you to Restore VLA configuration:


To restore the VLA configuration, you will need to provide a VLA backup file. The backup file contains configuration and settings of the VLA.


  1. In a new browser window or tab enter the URL for the LaMa Service Dashboard page on the Tomcat instance, for example: https://<vla_hostname_or_IP>:8443/vla/dashboard, where <vla_hostname_or_IP> is the FQDN or IP address of VLA.
  2. You may be prompted with a certificate warning. In this case, check certificates and accept/add them if they are ok. A few examples can be found in Add Trusted Certificates in a Browser, for more information, please read the browser documentation and policy.
  3. Enter the LaMa Service username and password. This opens the dashboard.
  4. Click on the Backup and Restore section of the dashboard and scroll down to the Restore heading.
