The export subcommand writes XML-formatted configuration or inventory data to a file. Inventory data is a snapshot of all the fields for the controllers, RAID volumes, and disks. Configuration data contains only attributes that can be set and imported onto another system to configure that system's RAID volumes in the same manner.
The export subcommand requires a file name as a modifier. If a file by that name exists, the tool prompts to overwrite the file (unless the –y option is used). If the hyphen (-) is given for the filename, then the XML-formatted configuration is written to the screen.
# raidconfig export inventory filename.xml
# raidconfig export config filename.xml
This subcommand requires at least one of the types shown in the following table.
