Viewed 152 times


An administrator for a cloud service provider may need to set up a new VM to replace the VM hosting the Zerto Cloud Manager. An administrator may need to export settings from a ZCM VM and import them to a new VM. This article explains the steps required to achieve that.



In order to migrate the settings from one ZCM to another VM, follow these steps: � Stop the ZCM service on ZCM A. Copy Zcm.sdf from C:Program Files (x86)ZertoZerto Cloud Manager on ZCM A. Install ZCM on ZCM B. Stop ZCM service on ZCM B. Replace Zvm.sdf in C:Program Files (x86)ZertoZerto Cloud Manager on ZCM B with Zvm.sdf from ZCM A Start ZCM service on ZCM B. � Please Note: 1. The new ZCM must be installed with the exact same version as the original ZCM for this procedure to work.� 2. This procedure shouldn't be used in any other circumstances. For instance, replacing the ZCM DB with an older backup of the DB in an individual ZCM instance is not supported.�
