Exporting and importing synchronization packages

The Export/Import feature in the Synchronization wizard is designed to make it easy for LANDesk Asset Lifecycle Manager customers to share synchronization packages with each other. Using this tool, you can export synchronization packages you have created, or import synchronization packages others have created. (See Additional resources for information on the LANDesk Technical Community.)

To export a package from the Synchronization packages page
  1. Select the package you want to export.
  2. Click Export.
  3. At the File Download prompt, click Save.
  4. In the Save As dialog box, click Save.

    The package is saved as an XML file, in the path you specified.

  5. Click Close to close the Download complete message.

To import a package from the Synchronization packages page
  1. Click Import.
  2. On the Confirm Import dialog box, click Browse.
  3. Select the XML file for the package you want to import, and click Open.
  4. Click the green checkmark button.

This imports the package and opens it in the Synchronization wizard so you can examine its settings and make any necessary changes. If it finds another package with the same name, it will append a number (0, 1, 2, etc.) to the end of the package name.

You can click the (more packages...) link in the top right corner of the Synchronization wizard to go directly to the LANDesk Technical Community website, where you can download additional shareable synchronization packages.
