Your scenario is this: Security Managment Server is running on VMware as a virtual machine. Something has gone wrong and you have concluded that a backup restore is the only way to fix it. You have three choices, VMware backup or migrate export or Gaia snapshot to restore from. Which one would you choose? Why would you choose that particular one instead of the other options? What are the benefits? Also in which scenario do you consider each of these options as the best backup restore solution?
