NSX Manager appliance is inoperable and you have taken the recommended backups, you can restore your NSX Manager appliance. You will need the passphrase specified when the backup was created to restore a backup.
Prepare to Restore the NSX Manager Backups Before restoring the NSX Manager backups, you must install a new NSX Manager appliance. The new NSX Manager must be deployed with the same management IP address as the previous NSX Manager.
Restore the Cluster Backup The cluster backup is used to restore the desired network state. You must restore a cluster backup before restoring a node backup.
Restore the NSX Manager Node Backup The node backup restores the appliance configuration, which allows the NSX Controller cluster to connect to it. You must restore a cluster backup before restoring a node backup. The node backup file that you choose should have the same timestamp as the cluster backup file.
Download the Backup and Restore Helper Script You must download the backup and restore helper script from the NSX Manager.
Revert Fabric Changes Since Last Cluster Backup The backup and restore helper script compares the desired state after the backups have been restored with the most recent fabric state captured by the script, and provides instructions for making the fabric state match the desired state after restoring the backup.
Restore an NSX Controller Cluster If an NSX Controller Cluster is unrecoverable, or if you need to replace one or more controllers due to changes to cluster membership, you should restore the entire cluster of controllers.
