The Orchestrator configuration interface provides a mechanism to export the Orchestrator configuration settings to a local file. This mechanism allows you to take a snapshot of your system configuration at any moment and import this configuration into a new Orchestrator instance.
About this task
You should export and save your configuration settings on a regular basis, especially when making modifications, performing maintenance tasks, or upgrading the system.
For a list of exported configuration settings, see Orchestrator Configuration Files.
Keep the file with the exported configuration safe and secure, because it contains sensitive administrative information.
- Log in to the Orchestrator configuration interface as vmware.
- On the General tab, click Export Configuration.
- (Optional) Type a password to protect the configuration file.
Use the same password when you import the configuration.
- Click Export.
Orchestrator creates a vmo_config_dateReference.vmoconfig file on the machine on which the Orchestrator server is installed. You can use this file to clone or to restore the system.
