Migrate 10.8 to 10.8.1 via Backup and Restore

We are going to have new servers for our ArcGIS Enterprise to change the deployment from based deployment to multi-machine deployment. Also, we will migrate from 10.8 to 10.8.1.

Currently, we have many different items such as Dashboards, WebApp Builder, Survey123 HFL, many different HFL, and 100+ users with their groups.


Could we restore the full backup of 10.8 to be in 10.8.1 by using the Webgisdt tool?

If not, what could be the solution to this kind of situation?

The WebGISDR backup/restore process is not made to bridge different versions, so you would either want to restore on a 10.8 platform, then upgrade that collection of machines or you could upgrade the existing environment, then restore to a fresh 10.8.1 deployment that follows the rules of the replicated deployment scenario.
