Thanks for your reply Amit.

May i know how we can can sync security (folder level and access levels).

* we have a plan to take a complete backup from Prod to UAT or Promotion to UAT from Prod, is it works.?


I don't know how are you using UAT as a system.Security also you can move with moving folders/reports from Prod to UAT.

Migration will work in both ways but question is Prod always a controlled environment.before doing anything check what is the process you have to follow.

Hi Brahma,

The best way to sync your UAT with production is Promotion Management.

Although you can also do backup and restore procedure.

1) Take a cold backup of your Production CMS database and File store. Restore it in your production CMS database and filestore.

2) Recreate a Server Intelligence Agent (SIA) and done do not start the SIA. Navigate to properties of SIA>> Configuration and change the "CLUSTER NAME".

3) Start the SIA.

Once done your UAT will become a replica of your production.

Please let me know in case of anything.
