You can restore a backup only on a freshly deployed NSX Manager appliance.

To restore an available backup, the Host IP Address, User Name, Password, Backup Directory, Filename Prefix, and Pass Phrase fields in the Backup Location screen must have values that identify the location of the backup to be restored.


  1. Log in to the new NSX Manager appliance.
  2. Under Appliance Management, click Backups & Restore.
  3. In the Backup History section, select the required backup folder to restore.
  4. Click Restore.
  5. Click OK to confirm.
