I would like to know how long ArcGIS Server restore (python) takes to finish in general (it is taking me days)?
The documentation below tells us that it could take some time but do not tells for how long.
Another question is: "Is there a way to backup/recovery only the published services?"
I am taking too much time to set two different environment (QA/Production) with all it dependencies (Web Adaptor/Portal etc). If there is a way to optimize this procedures I would be so glad to know.
Thanks in advance
That is a loaded question on how long. I would say that there are a lot of items at play: how large of a site you have, machine resources, size of backup, etc.
Can you provide any more information to help?
I know there are many things to consider but a relevant information is that the backup took only 20min and the restore is during days (not finished yet). My environment does not have any cache but this is not considered at backup/restore level.
I still remains with the doubt about backup only specific services between two machines.
Are you restoring the content to the same machine as before?
I would recommend that you open a technical support case and have an analyst take a look to make sure there is nothing crazy going on. I would say that a few days is a little too long.
