Cloning Configurations

Cloning makes an exact copy of a configuration, with a different name.

To create a new configuration, clone an existing one.

To clone a configuration, you must have rights to Manage a Configuration.  Any configuration can be cloned, including the ConfigTemplate delivered with Enterprise Manager.

To clone a Configuration:

  1. Right-click a configuration name and choose Open to Manage.

  2. Right-click the configuration name again, and choose Clone This Configuration.

A copy of the configuration is created and the Properties dialog appears.  The configuration name is the same name but with a number added at the end.

  1. If desired, type a new Name and Description for the configuration.

  2. Click OK to close the dialog box.

  3. The original configuration (the one you cloned) is still open for management. Right-click its name and select Close [Manage].

Note: The clone (that is, the new configuration you created) is not automatically open to manage. You must right-click it and choose Open to Manage.
