Perform the following steps for restoring a VMware Telco Cloud Automation deployment to its last backed-up state.


Note: You can perform this operation only on a non-airgap deployment.


  1. Log in to the appliance management interface: <https://tca-cp-ip-or-fqdn:9443>.
  2. Navigate to Administration > Troubleshooting > Backup & Restore.
    If backup files are stored in a SFTP or an FTP server, the list is displayed under Restore.
  3. Select the file and click Restore.
  4. If you have stored the backup file in a local repository, click Choose File, browse to the backup file, and open it.
  5. Click Upload.
    The upload operation begins. This operation can take several minutes to complete.
  6. After the upload operation is complete, click Restore.


CaaS clusters, Network Function catalogs, and all running Network Functions are restored from the backup file. You can now continue using VMware Telco Cloud Automation from the backup snapshot.
Note: Restored clusters use IP addresses from the backup file.
