Exporting and importing server and category patterns

If you have multiple Lenovo XClarity Administrator instances, you can export server and category patterns from one XClarity Administrator instance and import them in another XClarity Administrator instance.

About this task

You can export only server and category patterns. Policies, address pools, and profiles cannot be exported. Exported patterns are dissociated with any reference address pools. To leverage the address pools in an imported pattern, edit the pattern and re-associate the pattern with the pools in XClarity Administrator in which they are imported.

Note: When you export a server patterns, the associated category patterns are also exported.
