Move PBS to another computer


May 16, 2023

Is ther a way to backup my currrent Proxmox Backup Server configuration in order to move to another computer?

Many thanks!
No built-in function for that. But most of the config files are stored in the /etc/proxmox-backup/ folder in case you want to cherry-pick individual conig files and transfer them over so you don't have to start from scratch.
