Patient search does not return any record on a backup server

I am trying to deploy openmrs as an emr for a clinic. However, i want to be certain that a backup of my server will work before implementing it for obvious reasons. I have it working . I then did a backup of the database and started a new instance of openmrs on a new server. All the modification I made on the primary server are reflected on the backup server. However, patient search returns no record even though:

  1. I can see recent searched patients.
  2. I can see all the patients on the database using phpmyadmin
  3. Running a report on the backup server returns all the registered patients

I am using 2.8.0 Reference application on windows 10 .

Any help and advice will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks in advance

Does rebuilding the search index help?
