When restoring a backup in a clustered environment, perform the restoration steps on only the primary server.

A short outage is required while the configuration data is being restored. Once the configuration data is restored, the system comes back online and the historical monitoring data is restored.

You can choose one of the following options.
Restore Option Description
Configuration Data only Restores only the configuration data. Existing historical data is retained and is not restored from backup.
Configuration Data only (into a clean database) Restores the configuration data. Existing historical monitoring data is not kept and is not restored from backup. A new Viewpoint database is created and the old database is removed.
Full Restore Restores both the configuration and historical monitoring data. A new Viewpoint database is created and the old database is removed.
