Full Unity Export and Import tools now available

OK gang… the long awaited Full Unity Export and Import tools are now publicly available on the tools page. Lots of folks have been asking about these recently.<br><br>These tools can be used to back up all Unity data from any version from 2.3.4 build 104 through 2.4.6 build 102 and that information can be restored onto a CLEAN install of 2.4.6. I must emphasize CLEAN here… the import tool expects (and tries to enforce) that the system has the complete, default database created by setup when it imports your data. Do NOT go monkying around creating new users, deleting/editing existing objects before importing… do all that after the import is complete.<br><br>Check out the description on the web page to see exactly what data is backed up and restored and, more to the point, what’s not.<br><br>As with all tools on my page, you must use them at your own risk. Cisco support will not help you with these or deal with your system if one of them causes a problem. <br><br>These ones have gotten a lot of testing and a number of you out there have already used them in their “beta” format… A modified version of these tools will ship with the Unity 3.0 product later this year. That being said, these are extremely complicated tools, please read the information on the web page about them and test them on a lab system first. And ALWAYS get a good backup of the customer’s system before trying to migrate Unity data using these tools. Let’s be safe out there, people.<br><br>Enjoy.<br><br><br>Jeff Lindborg<br>Unity Product Architect/Answer Monkey<br>Cisco Systems<br><br><A HREF="" target="_new"></A> (new page for Unity support tools and scripts)
