About the Backup & Restore Page

To access this page, select Administration > Insights Management > Backup & Restore.

You can back up different configurations of Security Director Insights (not the data collected by Insights) and restore the configuration from the existing backup configuration files.

The configuration backup includes the configurations for Security Director Insights and Log Collector, but not for Policy Enforcer. You can restore the backup configuration settings to any Security Director Insights and Log Collector systems running the same version. There is no dependency on the data contained within Security Director.
