Restore VM CHR backup in different VM

Tue Jul 09, 2019 3:24 am

Hello,

Can anyone advise if it's possible to restore a virtual machine CHR backup in another different virtual machine CHR without getting any problems?

This is just for the sake of quick restore of the backup.

You should be able to apply a backup from one VM to another VM, provided the VM's configurations match. Regular backups, however, contain device/instance specific stuff (like interface MAC addresses), so this is not the best option in general. You'd better consider configuration export instead.
