Exporting Configuration Settings

By exporting configuration settings to a configuration file, you can back up the current instance or use the configuration file to create a Password Manager realm.

A realm is a group of Password Manager instances using common configuration settings, including but not limited to Management Policies, general settings, password policies, etc.

If you want to create a realm, you need to export the configuration settings from a Password Manager instance and create a replica of this instance by importing the configuration settings. To learn more about creating Password Manager realms, see Installing Multiple Instances of Password Manager.

To export configuration settings

  1. Connect to the Administration site by typing the Administration site URL in the address bar of your Web browser. By default, the URL is http://<ComputerName>/PMAdmin/.
  2. On the menu bar, click General Settings, then click the Import/Export tab and select the Export configuration settings option and click Export.

    IMPORTANT: Remember and store the password that is generated while exporting the configuration file. You must enter this password when importing the configuration file for a new instance when, you want to join to a realm or restoring the configuration. Losing this password requires re-installation of the application.

    Export the configuration settings and save in a secure location. Use these settings to create secondary instances of Password Manager, and to recover data in the event of server disaster, or serious data loss.
