The backup file server stores backups from all the NSX Managers. To get the list of backups so that you can find the one you want to restore, you must run the script.

The script is located on an NSX Manager. The full path name is /var/vmware/nsx/file-store/ You can run this script on any Linux machine or NSX-T Data Center appliance. As a best practice, you should copy this script after installing NSX-T Data Center to a machine that is not an NSX Manager so that you can run this script even if all the NSX Managers become inaccessible. If you need to restore a backup but have no access to this script, you can install a new NSX Manager and run the script there.

You can copy the script to another machine or to the backup file server by logging in to the NSX Manager as admin and running a CLI command. For example:
nsxmgr-1> copy file url scp://admin@
admin@'s password:
The script is interactive and will prompt you for the information that you specified when you configured the backup file server. You can specify the number of backups to display. Each backup is listed with a timestamp, the NSX Manager node's IP address or FQDN if the NSX Manager node is set up to publish its FQDN, and the node ID. For example,
admin@host1:/home/admin# ./ 
Enter file server ip:
Enter port:
Enter directory path:
Enter number of latest backup or press Enter to list all backups:

root@'s password: 
Latest backups:
[Backup timestamp; IP address/FQDN; Node id]
