When you export the system configuration, a vmo_config_dateReference.vmoconfig file is created locally. It contains all the Orchestrator configuration data.

Note

Some of the configuration files that are created during the export are empty. For example, the server configuration data is not exported because the startup options for the Orchestrator server are individual for each machine where the Orchestrator server is installed. These empty files must be reconfigured, even when a working configuration was previously imported.

Certificates are not exported. Most certificates are stored in the Orchestrator database. However, the vCenter Server certificate is not stored in the database. You must store it in a separate location, or import it again when you import an Orchestrator configuration.

Licenses

Manually imported licenses are not exported. They are stored in the Orchestrator database.
