Navigate to "Administration » Agents and Software Updates » Software Updates" and copy the Subscription key. Also keep the License email safe with you.


Step 2: Download the server certificate from the CPPM, navigate to "Administration » Certificates » Server Certificate" and export the certificate.


Step 3: Deploy a new VM with the recommended hardware specifications and give the same IP to the instance if we would want to use the same IP.

Note: Using the same IP on the new VM would ensure that we need not change any configuration on the NAD devices, in case the IP is changes we would need to make the necessary changes on the NAD devices also.


Step 4: Apply the licenses on the server.


Step 5:  Restore the backup to the new instance.

Navigate to "Administration » Server Manager » Server Configuration" and click on Restore  and restore the backup.
