Migrate to new Netsight Server

    Hi Community

    I have a Netsight Hardware appliance that failed. (Nic died).
    Extreme replaced the Hardware appliance as part of an RMA process.

    I now need to move the Netsight config and database from the old HW appliance to the new replacement appliance.

    The question I have is:
    Does the netsight database backup file contain all the netsight/NAC/Purview config as well?
    I have some maps created ect, and then in NAC some NAC rules that applies.



    Do I only need to restore the database file?

    take a look at the migration/upgrade guide.
    I once did a migration from virtual appliance 32bit to virtual appliance 64bit and all worked good
    but this was a long time ago
