SmartStruxure server backup set is incompatible for restore.
Importing Backup Set

The backup set contains information in the compressed .xbk file that can be retrieved this way ...

- On the copy, for AS change the file extension from .xbk to .zip. For ES change to .tar
- Use a tool such as 7zip to decompress the file
