Copying Hosts from one CMS to another

I have a CMS where hosts were added manually and I would like to copy the hosts from 1 server to another. How can this be accomplished?

Re: Copying Hosts from one CMS to another

Hi,
I have a "lazy" way to do it...

Go to Options > Discovery
From there click on the Hosts File tab and choose "New" on the right hand side.
Choose the name and then choose the middle radial button (see attached picture).
And then click on "Initialize Now". That should populate the area down below with IP addresses and host names of the current devices.
From there I'm not exactly positive on a smooth way to get it to the other SIM server, but I was able to copy and paste the host file contents into another file (a .txt) and then use that on the other SIM server to populate its' database.
There may be an easier way...but I'm not positive.
Hope this helps...
