How to Restore the Backup the Network Advisor in another server?

My NA version is 12.1.3.

 

I followed your installation guide to Backup the NA Data. (Option > Server Backup)

Installed a same version NA 12.1.3 in a new server.

Select SMC > Restore

And then I choose the BACKUP.MANIFEST file in the Backup Folder but it prompts the below error message: 

 

Restore Failed. The backup.manifest file is missing.

 

May I know what the problem is?

Rather than choosing the file, I think you should select the higher-level directory.

I tried to select the Backup folder, but it prompts the below failure message.

 

The specified file is invalid.

If you receive the error message "The specified file is invalid" when choosing a Network Advisor restore folder location, it is likely due to wrong folder selected.  Network Advisor restore feature will search for the backup manifest file in the following folder:


\Backup\Backup\ < ------ manifest file and folders located here

 

Please maintain this directory structure to have a successful restore of Network Advisor database.
