You can migrate the configuration of your existing Orchestrator server by using either the command-line migration tool or the export and import options in Control Center.
- Customized system settings, such as memory thresholds or an increased Java heap space.
- Logging levels that are different from the default settings.
- Syslog server configuration in the Logging Integration page in Control Center.
- Custom system properties that you configure in the System Properties page in Control Center or apply directly to the vmo.properties file on the appliance.
The Orchestrator migration tool bundles the configuration settings, plug-ins, plug-in configurations, certificates, and license information into an archive that you can import into vRealize Orchestrator 7.x.
You can use the following command-line options with the
vro-migrate export command:
||Set a password to protect the exported archive. If no password is provided the archive is not protected.|
||Specify the root path of the vRealize Orchestrator server.|
Export and Import Configuration
By selecting different options from the Export Configuration page in Control Center, you can choose to export the server configuration with or without the plug-ins and their corresponding configurations. To import an exported Orchestrator configuration to another Orchestrator instance, you must choose the import type.
