NSX Manager - Backup

Posted on 2016-11-09

In my environment i have automated the back up of my NSX Manager every week once to the FTP server.
So every week once the NSX manager backup is taken & stored in my FTP server.

My question is when the backup is taken will the copy of the backup will remain in the NSX manager also or the backup data is only exported to the FTP server.
The reason for asking this is because, since the backup schedule happens every week, if the backup data is getting stored locally in the NSX Manager its disk utilization will increase & will cause high utilization.

Please let me know.

Hi,

No NSX Backup will copy to the remote location only.

And also Backups are saved to a remote location that must be accessible by the NSX Manager.

Is there any official document from VMware which explains the same.
