I came across a funny thing. While onsite I take a gwbk at the end of the day like I do at every other job (just created a project, setup DB profile, setup device, and bring in tags to ignition, and store them in to history). Assuming all was fine I got back to the office and tried to restore it and it stopped the service, started the service like normal. but when I looked closer it was the same gateway that was up before.
I tried restoring another gateway backup on my machine and it restored fine. Then tried the gwbk in question, to the same result, acted like it was working but the gateway did not restore. Any ideas why this happened?
I believe I was using 7.6.3rc2
(site is several hours away, not super easy to get 7.6.3rc3 in)
