Using the Apex One Settings Export Tool

Important:

This version of Apex One only supports migrations from OfficeScan version XG SP1 and later. Ensure that you upgrade both the source OfficeScan server and all migrated Security Agents to version XG SP1 or later before attempting to migrate settings.

For a complete list of the settings that the Apex One Settings Export Tool migrates, see The Apex One Settings Export Tool.

  1. Locate the Server Migration Tool package.
    • From the Apex One web console, go to Administration > Settings > Server Migration and click the Download Apex One Settings Export Tool link.

  2. Copy the Apex One Settings Export Tool to the source OfficeScan server computer.
    Important:

    You must use the Apex One Settings Export Tool on the source OfficeScan server version to ensure that all data is properly formatted for the new target server. Apex One is not compatible with older versions of the Server Migration Tool.

  3. Open a command prompt with administrative privileges, change to the location of the tool, and execute ApexOneSettingsExportTool.exe.

    The Apex One Settings Export Tool runs.
