Import a configuration by double-clicking the configuration file (Single and Multi Tenancy)

Note: This task is available in the Single Tenancy and Multi Tenancy mode.

You can also export a configuration and distribute it to several security officers. The security officers then only need to double-click the configuration file to open a fully configured SafeGuard Management Center.

This is useful when you use SQL authentication for the database and want to avoid that every administrator knows the SQL password. In this case, you only need to enter it once, create a configuration file and distribute it to the respective security officers’ computers.

Prerequisite: The initial configuration of the SafeGuard Management Center must have been carried out. For details, see Setting up SafeGuard Management Center.

  1. Start the SafeGuard Management Center.
  2. Select Options from the Tools menu and select the Database tab.
  3. Enter or confirm the credentials for the SQL Database Server connection.
  4. Click Export configuration to export this configuration to a file.
  5. Enter and confirm a password for the configuration file.
  6. Enter a file name and select a storage location.
  7. Distribute this configuration file to the security officers’ computers. Let them know the password for this file as well as the certificate store password needed to authenticate at the SafeGuard Management Center.
  8. The security officers just need to double-click the configuration file.
  9. They are prompted to enter the password for the configuration file.
  10. To authenticate at the SafeGuard Management Center, they are prompted to enter their certificate store password.

The SafeGuard Management Center starts with the imported configuration. This configuration is the new default configuration.
