Restore SmartCenter backup into Azure VM

has anyone tried restoring a Hyper-V based on-premise SmartCenter VM into Azure using the backup/restore command? On-premise I have an R80.10 SmartCenter and I deployed the same version in Azure from the Marketplace.


I did a quick try already but the VM had another IP and didn't receive the same cpuse patch. So that might already be a reason for failure.

"show restore status" gives "local restore has failed. Failed to restore the backup package". Where can I find more info about restore failures? Is there a logfile somewhere?


Before I invest more time in this... does this have any chance of working? Azure also runs on Hyper-V but it's not quite the same as on-premise.

The nice thing is that you can schedule backups in Gaia GUI. I know migrate export/import will work but I can't schedule that in Gaia GUI unless I script something.


Kind regards,
