If you're a network administrator, you might need to import or export VShell configuration settings for a couple of reasons, such as to move VShell from one Windows machine to another, or to build a backup server. To do this, you will be using a command-line utility called VShellConfig.
VShell configuration settings are stored in the Windows registry. There are additional files associated with VShell that also need to be exported. If you simply need a backup of your VShell settings, follow the instructions in step one below.
This tip includes instructions for VShell 3.0 and newer. If you need assistance
with an earlier version of VShell, please contact
1. Export the configuration settings from the old machine.
2. Install VShell on the new machine.
3. On the new machine, use VShellConfig to import the configuration settings.
4. Restart VShell on the new machine.
Subject to the migration notes below, your new copy of the VShell server should be ready to use.
