You can restore a Monitoring backup in a distributed environment with only Monitoring persona.
Before You Begin
A deployment must have at least one functioning Monitoring node.
Wait until the deregistration is complete before proceeding with the restore. The node must be in a standalone state before you can continue with the restore.
Promote the newly restored and registered node as the PAN."
for Step 5, is it supposed to be primary MnT, not PAN? for a fully distributed deployment, each node has its own persona
Yeah. I agree with you. It looks like an error due to copy-and-paste from the previous section.
Besides, we should be able to restore OPS backups directly to the active M&T node.
BTW, you may use the Feedback link on the page to provide the inputs directly to our doc team.
Got it thanks.
and a follow up question... if directly restor to active MnT, the restored Operational data get appended to the Active MnT current data or is going to be overwritten. I believe it's going to be overwritten by this restore. tks.
Yes, you are correct that the restore will overwrite the existing data.
