    Restore a distributed setup backup to a single server environment


      I have not personally tried this but I want to know if anyone in the community has tried it or know if it's possible--

      Say I have a distributed 7.0 server environment consisting of primary plus one worker server. The primary is hosting data extracts, and then when the worker server was added it too was given the setting to host data extracts. Now I have a configuration where the primary and worker both host data extracts. If I take a backup of this distributed environment and wish to restore it to another environment which is just a single server, how does restore consolidate the data extracts coming from both servers into one?


      Side question: how does Tableau know where to put data extracts (primary or worker) if both are configured to host data extracts?
