Importing/Exporting Configurations

You can export and import your server configurations to allow replication of your environment and to back up your work.

This is especially useful in load balanced environments where it is necessary to configure a number of identical servers. Importing the same configuration file across multiple servers can save time and reduce errors. It is also useful when moving your test environment to a production server (or vice versa).

Exporting a Server Configuration

To export a Pipeline Pilot Server configuration file:

1. Log into the Admin Portal on the server that uses the configuration you want to export.
2. Go to Maintenance > Export Import Configuration.
3. Click Export Configuration.
4. At the prompt, specify where you want to save the XML file so you can easily download it to another server. The exported XML file is called "Server-config.xmlx" by default.

Importing a Server Configuration

To import a Pipeline Pilot Server configuration file on another server: 

1. Log into the Admin Portal on the target server where you want to replicate the server configuration (Windows-to-Windows or Linux-to-Linux).
2. Go to Maintenance > Export Import Configuration.
3. Click Import Configuration. A dialog opens.
4. Browse to the location where "Server-config.xmlx" is available.
5. Click Upload.
6. Restart your Pipeline Pilot Server so the new configuration can take effect.
7. Repeat on each server you want to replicate.
