It will restart NSX Manager only not esxi.

and will no control on it before it come online , so you lose management  capabilities only. Rest will work with no impact , with last status of configuration

Hi Satuu,

If you are asking about NSX Manager restore, you need to know that restoring backup to the running NSX manager is not supported. You have to perform a fresh NSX manager installation with the same settings as the old NSX manager then restore the configuration from the FTP/SFTP backup.

Please check the below link:

Restore an NSX Manager Backup

After the restore is done, certificates and vCenter association will be the same and there is no need to do anything (if there is no change in edges, switches) from last backup.

No ESXi hosts reboot is required as well.

Please let me know if this is what you are asking for as your question is not clear.

Please consider marking this answer "correct" or "helpful" if you think your question have been answered correctly. Cheers, @vExpertConsult www.vexpertconsultancy.com VCIX-DCV 2018 | VCIX-NV 2019 | VCAP7-CMA Design | vSAN Specialist | vExpert ** | vExpert NSX | vExpert vSAN

Hi,

Thank you for your reply.

The host is ESXi.
