You can restore your vSphere Bitfusion database and recover the cluster to a previously healthy state.

To recover your vSphere Bitfusion cluster from a failure or unhealthy state, you can use a backup file to restore the configuration, connectivity, health state, and history data of the cluster.


  • Verify that you have a backup of your vSphere Bitfusion environment.
  • Verify that your vSphere Bitfusion cluster has one vSphere Bitfusion server in a healthy state.


  1. In the vSphere Client, select Menu > Bitfusion.
  2. On the Settings tab, click Backup/Restore.
  3. Restore the cluster.
    1. Click Restore From Download.
    2. Select a backup file.
    3. Click Restore From Backup.


The restore operation might need several minutes to complete. During the process, a Restore in progress notification is displayed in the Backup/Restore pane.

What to do next

After the operation is completed and the vSphere Bitfusion plug-in is registered again with vCenter Server, click the refresh icon ( vSphere Client refresh icon) to update all data in the current vSphere Client view.
