A restore point is a snapshot taken of TPAM at a specific point in time., there is currently no manual method to create a snapshot. When shipped, TPAM console appliances have a factory default image e.g "Appliance Factory Defaults (2.5.909)". Restore points are also created by TPAM automatically in two instances:
1 : Prior to applying specific patches, as indicated in the release notes. If there are issues with the patch after it is applied, reverting to the restore point allows you to roll back as if the patch was never applied.
2 : Prior to enrolling a replica in a cluster. If the enrollment process has errors the appliance can be reverted to that restore point. A restore point can be applied to an appliance through the TPAM web interface or through the CLI.
Enhancement request number BFER 7028 "User configurable snapshot feature" has been submitted to Development for consideration in a future release of TPAM
