SiteScope export/import configuration file

Is there a configuration file that the export/import utility uses when a export is created?
I would attempt to creat/build an export of my site and it would run forever then fail because it says it could not find a file. When I first started performing exports the file would only be about 96-98 KB in size. Now when I run the export utility it takes90+ minutes creates a file 400+KB in size then crashes. It seems that a config file is corrupt but I don't know where to look.

Re: SiteScope export/import configuration file

Hi, Fred.

What SiteScope version are you using?
What options do you use when you are exporting your configuration? Screenshot would be great.

Export by configuration tool is, basically, grabbing some directories and zipping them into one .zip archive.
Yes, that simple.
So, there is no configuration file that is used in export.

Thank you. Sergey.

My question refers to version 9.5 but now I have moved over to 10.11. I am just concern that it may happen on the new version, I just want to be prepaired.

Haven't experienced anything like that on 10.10.

Re: SiteScope export/import configuration file

Just to be sure, are you stopping SiteScope service before exporting configuration?

Re: SiteScope export/import configuration file

Hi Fred,
As said above no configuration file, except for the configTool.bat itself in which the some values are passed to the configtool.jar

I had an issue where I needed to to call the jar with hard coded values and not using parameters in the batch file.
Best Regards,
Ilya

Re: SiteScope export/import configuration file

I am trying to migrate from Sitescope 7.9 to 11.2 and I cannot find a way to export my config from 7.9 to the new 11.2 servers I have built. Is there a way anyone is aware of that I can export the configuration from 7.9 so I don't have to recreate all of my monitors?

Re: SiteScope export/import configuration file

It's impossible to migrate configuration data from SiteScope 7.9 to SiteScope 11.20 directly. You have to go through the entire chain of upgrades, i.e. from 7.9 to 9.x (you can jump over 8.x), then from 9.x to 10.x, then from 10.x to 11.20.
