How do I migrate my Altaro configuration to another machine?

Last Updated: Mar 06, 2018 12:15PM CET
Altaro VM Backup automatically backs up its configuration to the set primary location. This allows us to restore the configuration using a CLI tool. The configuration is saved in the 'ConfigBackup' folder under the backup location configured in the product.

Limitation: The CLI import tool should not be used to move Altaro configuration between nodes in the same cluster. 

It is important to note that:
  • The product's UI must be closed before any attempt to restore the configuration.
  • After that the restore is done, the hosts and backup location credentials need to be re-authenticated.

To use the tool, please proceed as follows:
  1. After installing Altaro VM Backup on the new machine, open Command Prompt with Administrator priveleges.

  2. Change directory to "C:\Program Files\Altaro\Altaro Backup"

  3. Run the tool by typing "Altaro.Apps.ConfigRestore.exe"

  4. When prompted, enter your backup location (this needs to be supplied as previously configured in Altaro backup location). NOTE: if the backup location is a network location, you will be prompted to enter the domain credentials in order to access the configuration backup.

  5. The services are stopped, the last backed up product configuration version is restored, and the services are then started automatically.

  6. Important. After the tool has completed the restore, make sure to re-enter passwords for your backup locations.
