Is there a way of exporting DNI Templates and Initiation Directories from one TIBCO MFT Platform Server for Windows machine and then importing them on another TIBCO MFT Platform Server for Windows machine?
The DNI Templates and Initiation Directories are stored in theftmssvr.pqffile. To copy the DNI Templates and Initiation Directories between two machines, copy the ftmssvr.pqf file from the current machine and replace the same file on the new server. This file is located in the <MFTPS> directory (i.e. MFT Platform Server for Windows home directory). To replace the ftmssvr.pqf file, follow these steps:
- Stop the Platform Server for Windows service - Rename the existing Platform Server for Windows ftmssvr.pqf file to ftmssvr.pqf.backup - Copy ftmssvr.pqf file to the Platform Server directory - Start the Platform Server service - Check the Transfer Templates and the Initiation Directories on the Platform Server Administrator.
1. This article does not apply to pDNI.
2. The copy of the ftmssvr.pqf file works very well as long as both servers have the same configuration (server name/file paths etc.) This is very useful if the new server is configured exactly like the parent (server name/file paths etc.).
3. If the server has a different configuration, copying to a new server configuration may require additional steps with regards to configuring the DNI templates. Most of the DNI transfer information will need to be changed.
