    Tableau Environment migration on new Hardware

    Chandra Manral

      Hi All,

       

      We have a  requirement where in we want to move Tableau environment from one location to another.

      Since it is all VM based environment , can we not take a VM snashot and restore it on target location ?

       

      I checked lot knowledgebase and found this is not the recommended or Tableau supported way of doing environment migration instead backup and restore should be done. However I would like to know the possible implication of doing this as V2V if anyone has ever tried that.

       

      Also do we have any kind of facts/figures like based on the size of backup file how much time usually it takes to restore and what are approaches we can follow to minimise the overall time of backup and restore so that we can reduce the application downtime specially for prod.

       

      Thanks.
