    HI Everyone,

    Can we restore the Archived data from one deployment archived files to another deployment?
    is it possible to restore the archived data from collector in to CM or aggregator in same deployment?

    Hi Panendar,

    Please refer to:
    Restore archived data from a collector only to the same collector, an aggregator, or a different collector that is dedicated to investigation that is not part of an aggregation cluster. Data that was archived on an aggregator cannot be restored on a collector.
    Restoring archive files from older versions into newer version appliance is supported for both collector and aggregator archive files. Restoring archive files into different or newly built appliances is supported. However, the "shared secret" used to archive on the original appliance must be the same as on the target appliance.
    So yes, you can restore the archive data from collector to aggregator or CM. Hope it helps.
