Exporting data from a stand-alone server to prepare for High Availability

You can export data from an existing stand-alone Jazz™ for Service Management application server instance to create a data file that can be imported into a High Availability configuration.

About this task

If you want to add a node to an existing High Availability configuration and the new node contains custom data, you must first export the data before you join the node to the High Availability configuration. The exported data is later imported to one of the nodes in the cluster so that it is replicated across the other nodes in the High Availability configuration.


  1. At the command line, change to the following directory: DASH_HOME/bin/
  2. Run the following command to export the stand-alone server data:
    On UNIX and Linux:
    consolecli.sh Export -username user_name -password password -exportFile destination
    On Windows:
    .\consolecli.bat Export -username user_name -password password -exportFile destination


    Specifies the administrator user ID.
    Specifies the password associated with the administrator user ID.
    Specifies the path and file name for the exported data, for example, c:/tmp/data.zip. If you omit the -exportFile destination parameter, the exported data is saved to DASH_HOME/ui/output/data.zip.
  3. Add the node to the High Availability configuration.
  4. Import the previously exported data to any node in the High Availability configuration.
