image:Icon for Oracle System Assistant

Use this task to export RAID, Oracle ILOM, and BIOS configuration information into xml files that can be imported into servers to replicate the corresponding configurations. The xml files are delivered in a single zip file.

Exported configurations can be used:

  • To back up a system, export the configuration, and then import the zip file to the originating system to restore the settings.

  • To replicate the settings on a different system, export the configuration and then import the zip file to the new system.

To import the settings, Import Hardware Configuration (Oracle System Assistant 1.2).

  1. Select Advanced > Export Hardware Configuration.

    The Export Hardware Configuration window appears.

  2. Select the configurations to import.

    If you select Service Processor Configuration, type and confirm the Passphrase.

  3. Select a transfer method.

    Additional fields appear, depending on the selection you made. Fill in the required details.

  4. Select Export.

    The system creates the xml files, zips them, and writes the zip file to the destination selected by the transfer method.
