You can import an archive to a managed vault only through command line

This article applies to:


If you are intending to import a backup or archive to any source other than a managed vault, tape or online vault, you can do this by simply copying the backup or archive to the physical location. For example, to import the archive to an unmanaged vault, copy the archive to the network folder of the vault.

If you are intending to import a backup or archive to a managed vault, you will need to via Windows Command Line.

Any type of backup or archive created with Acronis Bootable Media can be imported to a managed vault. For example, you can create a backup from Acronis Bootable Media and then import it to a managed vault.


Importing a backup or archive to a managed vault

On the Windows machine with Acronis Agent for Windows installed do the following:

  1. Go to Windows Command Line (Start-Run -> cmd);
  2. In the command line, browse to the following folder (use the cd command):

    \Program Files\Acronis\StorageNode\

  3. Issue the following command, specifying the local or network folder from which you want to import the archives, and the managed vault where to import them to:

    cscript.exe VaultImport.js /source_folder:"C:\Archives" /target_vault:"bsp://My Node/My Vault"


    • source_folder is the folder with the archive(s) that you are going to import
    • target_vault is the path to the managed vault, to which you are going to import
    • My Node is the hostname of the Storage Node machine
    • My Vault is the name of the vault you want to import archives to (can be seen under Centralized Vaults in Acronis Management Server when you connect to it from Acronis Backup and Recovery Management Console)
