To be able to save and restore the current configuration of databases, users, groups and computers, use the Data Export and Data Import features on the File menu.
The current configuration data, databases (non-SQL Server) and the configured users (including Favorites), groups and computers can be backed up in a ZIP file using the Data Export option. Exportation of inactive elements can also be selected for users, groups and computers.
If this feature is selected, a wizard will appear to guide the export process. Follow the wizard’s instructions to create the export file.
Exported data can be restored to the system in this manner. Depending on the data to be imported, the server may need to be re-started in some cases. The wizard will import the data and issue a notification if the server must be restarted.
|Data import into an internal user management system overwrites all currently existing information.|
Users, groups and computers cannot be imported into an Active Directory® Administrator.
|If the directory for file-based databases cannot be created in the configuration to be imported, e.g. because the drive does not exist, the configuration is automatically adjusted and the default directory ([installation directory UCServer]\database) is used.|
Exporting data from the previous 2.2 or 3.0 version.
Importing data from Versions 2.2 or 3.0 is not supported. Export the data from Versions 2.2 or 3.0 and import it into a Version 4.0 installation. Afterwards, the current 5.0 Version will be able to accept the data directly during installation.
|The latest version of the TapiServer service must be installed to permit its data to be exported.|
