The TLS Configuration utility performs a backup each time the script modifies vCenter Server. If you need a backup to a specific directory, you can perform a manual backup.
Backup of the ESXi configuration is not supported.
For vCenter Server, the default directory is /tmp/yearmonthdayTtime.
- Change directory to /usr/lib/vmware-TlsReconfigurator/VcTlsReconfigurator.
- To make a backup to a specific directory, run the following command.
directory_path/VcTlsReconfigurator> ./reconfigureVc backup -d backup_directory_path
- Verify that the backup was successful.
A successful backup looks similar to the following example. The order of services displayed might be different each time you run the reconfigureVc backup command, due to the way the command runs.
