Installing WFM Backup-Restore Utility

The Workforce Management (WFM) Backup-Restore Utility (BRU) configures the database you created (see Create Your WFM Database) to receive WFM data. If you are migrating from a previous version of Genesys Workforce Management (WFM), the WFM BRU also transfers your existing data into the new database.

If you are migrating, see the "Workforce Management Migration Procedures" chapter in the Genesys Migration Guide for instructions. The procedures in this Administrator’s Guide are based on the assumption that this is a new installation and do not describe the steps that are necessary for migration.
