Configuration Tasks

This section describes how to save, create and import/export Environment Manager Configuration file (AEMP) and how to import part configuration in the form of Policy Templates.

In this section:

Save a Configuration

Users with non-administrative rights operating a product console in Standalone mode can only view configurations with read-only permissions. The user can interact with the configuration settings in the console but the settings cannot be saved and are not implemented or retained after the console is closed. The user can export a configuration to XML format but cannot import a configuration.

When changes are made to a configuration, you have the following options:

Save

This is the default Save action and is the same as Save on the Quick Access toolbar.

  • Save and continue editing - Save the configuration to the Management Center and keep the configuration locked and open for editing. You cannot deploy the configuration while it is locked.
  • Save and Unlock - Save the current configuration in the Management Center and unlock it ready for deployment.
  • Unlock without saving - Unlock the current configuration in the Management Center without saving changes.

If Change Tracking is enabled before the save is committed, a summary of the changes you have made will be displayed.

Save As

  • Live configuration on this computer - Save the current configuration on the current computer and apply it as the working configuration. For a live configuration to work successfully, the EM User Virtualization Service must be installed and running on the endpoint. Administration rights are required to use this option.
  • Configuration in the Management Center - Create this configuration in the package store on the selected Management Center.
  • Configuration in System Center Configuration Manager - Saves your configuration to the specified System Center Configuration Manager server.
  • Configuration file on disk - Save the current configuration as a file on a local or network drive in AEMP format.
