You can back up or restore your NI VLM data, settings, and log files using the Backup and Restore Wizard. Items backed up include the NI VLM configuration, license, usage data, and permissions queue.

The Backup and Restore Wizard provides the following features:

  • On-demand backups, callable from within NI VLM and also from a command line
  • On-demand data restoration
  • Storage of all backed-up data in one file

You should regularly back up NI VLM to a network location so that you can restore all of your data in case of a catastrophic failure, such as losing all computer/user/permissions data after a hard drive crash.

Note Note  If you plan to move NI VLM to a new server, you should back up your NI VLM configuration data on the old server before removing NI VLM. The NI VLM Getting Started Wizard can import the backup data to the new server.
