Restore doesnt restore anything

I am testing freepbx on an asteriskNOW distro and i created a working server that basically trunks to my trixbox (getting rid of this soon) I ahve 10 extensions, 2 SIP trunks to my voip provider and one IAX2 trunk to my trixbox

I am trying to make sure backup restore works. I created a configuration backup on one server, and I ahve created a VM of asterisknow with freepbx and the restore does not restore anything (i have gone through the config files from original box and i cans ee my trunks and extensions) but theya re not restored

am I doing something wrong? (IPs of the 2 servers are obviously different)

thanks
