I took the backup from my VCS a few months ago. My VCS died last week and I got a replacement from CISCO. When I try to use my backup in the new device, I get the error:
SYSTEM ERROR: Failed to find required information for the VCS application in the backup.
There is also a warning that states:
The backup you are attempting to restore was made from another VCS (52AXXXXX). Any option keys will not be valid, and this may result in duplicate IP addresses in your network.
My question is, is it possible to use the backup from a previous device and download it into a replacement device?
