If you use the agent nodes for more than installing the agent software and if these nodes need a full backup, follow the same backup procedure as for any other virtual machine.

If the agent configuration is done on the client side (on the agents) and if the agent nodes are used only for vRealize Log Insight agent software installation, making a backup of the agent configuration file is sufficient.

Verify that the agent configuration is created on the vRealize Log Insight server side. A separate backup of the agent node is not required.


Backup theliagent.ini file.


Replace the file on the recovered agent or Linux or Windows machine with the backup file.
