When configuring backup and restore, consider your recovery strategy, including the backup solution being used, where it is implemented, and how the different Cloud Foundation components are backed up and restored.
It is recommended that you schedule regular backups for all management VMs.
Before you can restore any management VMs, the following components must be operational:
- The management vCenter Server
- The Platform Services Controller VMs
- The SDDC Manager VM
- The SDDC Manager Utility VM
Therefore, if any of these components were impacted, restore them first before restoring any management VMs. For example, the management vCenter Server must be restored first because it manages all the other management VMs.
