ESET PROTECT VA disaster recovery

When your ESET PROTECT VA gets broken, and you cannot start it again, or if it is deleted from storage or otherwise destroyed, you can follow the disaster recovery procedure.


You must have ESET PROTECT VA's database backup for a successful recovery.

1.Download the latest version of protect_appliance.ova, or if you use Microsoft Hyper-V. The advantage of this recovery procedure is that your ESET PROTECT VA will be up to date.

2.Deploy a new ESET PROTECT VA, but do not configure it.

3.Enable Webmin so that you can upload the database backup file.

4.Restore the database using the latest backup file you have.

5.Configure your freshly deployed ESET PROTECT VA with the restored database in the same way as your previous VA.
