You can Backup or Restore advanced-security data and settings by clicking on the button "Backup / Restore" on the top:
The command usage is described below:
By default, the backup will be created in the archives directory located in RDS-Advanced Security setup folder. However, the backup may be saved in a specified folder. Relative and absolute paths are allowed.
The specified backup directory must contain a data and a settings folder, as created by the /backup command.
Please note that you can specify the following advanced settings in the registry:
The backup directory can be specified in the registry key HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Digital River\RDS-Tools\knight\archivespath. By default, the "archives" directory of the Advanced Security setup directory will be used.
The maximum number of backups available can be specified in the registry key HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SOFTWARE\Digital River\RDS-Tools\knight\maxarchives. By default, Advanced Security keeps the last 3 backups.
Please follow the steps below to migrate Advanced Security from computer A to computer B:
On computer A, please click on the Backup button to create a new backup. Settings and data will be saved in the archives directory, located in advanced-security setup directory (typically C:\Program Files (x86)\RDS-Security\archives).
Copy the newly created backup folder (e.g. named backup-2019-09-11_14-37-31), including all content, from the archives directory on computer A to the archives directory on computer B.
On computer B, from the Backup / Restore window, in the "Restore" section, select the relevant backup name to be restored.
Then, click on Restore Settings Only to restore the settings. Alternatively, it is possible to click on Restore to restore all data and settings, which is not recommended for a migration but useful to restore advanced-security on computer A.
Please wait at most 2 minutes for the settings to be reloaded by advanced-security features.
