Recover Replica after restoring backup

Discussion created by Kevin Conway on Nov 12, 2020

In the process of trying to setup an RSA Authentication Manager test environment, I performed a backup of our existing RSA Production Environment and restored it to our new RSA Development Environment.  Once the Development Environment was restored,  I thought I would just need to re-sync the Primary and Replica Appliances in the Operations Console.  It actually removed the replica completely.   I know how to generate a Replica Package but I don't see anywhere to import it to on the Primary.  


Do I have to actually re-build the Replica Virtual Appliance using the one-time setup or is there something else that could be done without engaging my Vmware Team and having them reset the the Vm to boot off of the ova template?


Just curious.
