    What will be the impact when restoring the bcakup to a new BNA server to the switches.  Do I need to un-monitor the switches in the old environment first before doing the restore?

    From the End User license Agreement perspective you're allowed to run BNA in a Hot/Standy scenario with one instance being active and one shut down with just one license key.  Running both instances with just  one license key in parallel would violate the EULA.   

    If you have two BNA licenses available, you could theoretically monitor the switches with two BNA instances in parallel, however best practices and strongly recommended is to limit the number of monitoring instances to just one.
