Introduction:

Administrator's of application servers want to take a backup of deployed services, in case some of them get removed and need to be restored? If backup is available, then the virtual services can be restored in DevTest? 

Question:

How to take a backup of the deployed Virtual services in DevTest.

Environment:
All supported DevTest releases.
Answer:

When a virtual service is deployed, VSname.mar file and VSname.mar.tracking folder are created automatically in DevTest_Home/vseDeploy/VSE_2013 folder and these are deleted when VS is removed in the VSE console. Another folder is also created in lisatmp_x.x.x/lads folder, which will have the VS details. lisatmp_x.x.x refers to lisatmp_VersionOfDevTest.

You can copy just the VSname.mar files for your backup purposes and tracking folder will be created automatically when you copy the VSname.mar files to DevTest_Home/vseDeploy/VSE_2013 folder. 

When you copy the VSname.mar files to DevTest_Home/vseDeploy/VSE_2013 folder a new folder is also created in lisatmp_xxx/lads folder with the updated VS details.

Documentation doesn't refer the backup of VS's but it says where the MAR files are. Please refer the documentation at https://docops.ca.com/devtest-solutions/8-5/en/using/using-ca-service-virtualization/sv-installation-and-configuration.
