Hi Rahul_Kanaujia,

The best to minimize risks would be that you setup a replica. The replica should have RHEL 7 and Percona Server 5.7.25 (or a newer 5.7 version) and similar resources.

In this link you will find the steps to easily setup a replica with Xtrabackup: How to setup a replica for replication in 6 simple steps with Percona XtraBackup - Percona XtraBackup

For Percona Server 5.7 you should use xtrabackup version 2.4 NOT 8.0 (8.0 is only for MySQL/PS 8.0)
