You restore the EcoStruxure BMS server to revert back to a previous snapshot of the EcoStruxure BMS server data.
Restore is the process of restoring data to an original or former state. Using Restore, you can revert to a previous snapshot of the EcoStruxure BMS server data despite any configuration changes made since the last backup. In the EcoStruxure BMS, Restore is a manual process designed to avoid the accidental overwriting of current EcoStruxure BMS server 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.

Backup and Restore assures that SmartX server data can be restored to a replacement SmartX server in the event of hardware failure, or to the same SmartX server in the event of data loss. As a precaution, you back up your SmartX servers regularly so that you can use the most current backup to restore the SmartX server data to a replacement SmartX server. You also configure the new SmartX server to match the name and the network settings of the replaced SmartX server so the system can identify this SmartX server when online.
For more information, see SmartX Server Replacement Using Restore .
You can use the Restore function to re-use the configuration data from a backup set in a new standalone SmartX server. Rather than manually configuring your preferred SmartX server configuration, you can save time and configure the standalone SmartX server from a backup set.
The backup set used can originate from a SmartX server that is or has been part of a multi-server configuration.
