Retrieving and Exporting the .ini File

Summary of the procedure
An Administrator can retrieve the .ini file of a Network Management Card and export it to another
Management Card or to multiple Management Cards.
1. Configure a Management Card to have the settings you want to export.
2. Retrieve the .ini file from that Management Card.
3. Customize the file to change at least the TCP/IP settings.
4. Use a file transfer protocol supported by the Management Card to transfer a copy to one or more
other Management Cards. For a transfer to multiple Management Cards, use an FTP or SCP
script or the APC .ini file utility.
Each receiving Management Card uses the file to reconfigure its own settings and then deletes it.
