I cannot seem to find any documentation or a script to perform a backup and restore of NW 11.x host's configurations. It must be hidden somewhere.
Physical Host Upgrade Guide (10.6.4.x to 11.0)
yes refer above link and page 18 for back up instructions
That's a backup script for 10.6.3 and 10.6.4. It says:
"This backup script has been qualified on the following versions of Security Analytics:10.6.3.x and 10.6.4.xUse of this script on any other versions of the product may not give expected results and may not be supported by RSA Customer"
I confirm this Backup and Restore script does not work in NW 11.1
NW 11.1 is bundled with the new NetWitness Recovery Tool (NRT) but alpha version only. It is officially released in 11.2.

I can confirm this information too.I was given the same answer in support:
You can't use the backup script for NW11.1 , starting from NW11.2 there is a backup tool that can be used for backup and restore.
The official documentation for NRT (Netwitness Recovery Tool):
NRT: Disaster Recovery (Back Up and Restore)
I wrote a wrapper to NRT that allows centralized backup of all hosts to the NW server or a remote SCP/NFS location
