Use the ismu administrative utility to back up, restore, and migrate InfoPrint Manager objects or an existing configuration from a specific level of InfoPrint Manager to the same level of InfoPrint Manager.

  • The ismu utility was not intended to perform crossover migrations, such as migrating the AIX or Linux environment to the Windows environment and backwards. However, migrating objects that are supported commonly across platforms will work, but it will not successfully migrate platform specific objects (e.g. AIX DSS to Linux or Windows).

  • When running on a Windows system with User Account Control (UAC) enabled, right click on the ISMU command and select "Run as Administrator" or open a Command Prompt (Admin) console and run the ISMU command from there.

  • Only a person with root user authority or the InfoPrint Manager user can run this command.
