Import / Export

The Import / Export page imports and exports machine ID account settings as XML files, including scheduled agent procedures, assigned monitor sets and event sets. Log data is not included in the import or export. You can use Import / Export to migrate machine ID account settings, including machine ID templates, from one KServer to the next.

Note: See Copy Settings for a list of the types of settings associated with a machine ID account.
