Control Center provides a mechanism to export the Orchestrator configuration settings to a local file. You can use the mechanism to take a snapshot of your system configuration at any moment and import this configuration into a new Orchestrator instance.
You should export and save your configuration settings regularly, especially when making modifications, performing maintenance tasks, or upgrading the system.
- Log in to Control Center as root.
- Click Export/Import Configuration.
- Select the type of files you want to export.
Note: If you select Export plug-in configurations and the plug-in configurations contain encrypted properties, you must also select Export server configuration to successfully decrypt the data when importing.
- (Optional) Enter a password to protect the configuration file.
Use the same password when you import the configuration later.
- Click Export.
Orchestrator creates an orchestrator-config-export-hostname-dateReference.zip file that is downloaded on your local machine. You can use this file to clone or to restore the system.
