Why doesn't clearpass restore a cert from backup file

Might be a silly questions, but


1). When backing up and restoring a clearpass server, why doesn't the restore also restore the RADIUS certificate? - is this just a case of security and not having cert in a backup file?


2). When restoring from a backup, you get a message saying that the restore is setting the admin password .... but it doesn't. Was building a new VM with a 1TB disk and restored backup from previous VM but admin password is always the default. If you;'re not gonig to reset the pasword, don't tell me you are

Since any admin can export a backup of the server, it would not be safe to
include the key pair in the backup.
