Migrate to new Netsight Server


Userlevel 5
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
