Restored Data

Depending on what is contained in the backup file, you can restore different types of data.

  • Configuration only : the EcoStruxure Building Operation software restores the configuration database and custom object type data. Any existing historical data is lost when you select this option.

  • All data : the EcoStruxure Building Operation software restores the configuration, historical, and custom object types data.

Types of Data and Content

Types of Data

Content

Historical

Includes Trend logs and Event logs stored on the EcoStruxure BMS server.

Configuration

Includes points, values, alarm objects, trend objects, programs, graphics, and custom object type data stored on the EcoStruxure BMS server.

Includes the configuration properties of variables, such as Unit. Depending on the retain level of the variable; some configuration properties like Value are also restored.

The EcoStruxure BMS server name is part of the restore data. Therefore, if you rename the EcoStruxure BMS server after a backup, a restore process will revert back to the previous EcoStruxure BMS server name.

Impact on Configuration Values and Variables

When you back up the EcoStruxure BMS server specifying either Configuration only or All data, Building Operation includes all the configuration values that are specified for the EcoStruxure BMS server’s objects. If you restore the EcoStruxure BMS server, Building Operation restores these configuration values, which can overwrite any changes made since the last backup.

Building Operation does not include most variable settings in a backup. Consequently, Building Operation cannot restore these variable settings. However, the system does back up the cold-start retained variables.

Restore from the SmartX server

When you restore the SmartX server locally, the system retrieves the current master backup set for that SmartX server. However, you cannot select a particular backup set because the SmartX server stores only one backup set at a time.

Restore from an Enterprise Server

Unlike the SmartX server, the Enterprise Server can store multiple local and non-local backup sets. When you restore the Enterprise Server, you can select a local backup set from a list of files to restore the Enterprise Server. In multiple server sites, the Enterprise Server manages all the SmartX servers in its group. In this configuration, the non-local backup sets are stored in separate folders for each SmartX server.

When you restore the SmartX server from the Enterprise Server, you can select a particular backup set from a list of files that are stored for that SmartX server. This restore method provides greater flexibility. For more information, see Restoring a SmartX Server from the Enterprise Server .

Restore from an Enterprise Central

The Enterprise Central can store multiple local and non-local backup sets. When you restore the Enterprise Central, you can select a local backup set from a list of files to restore the Enterprise Central.

Restore status

The EcoStruxure BMS server properties indicate if a restore was performed:
