Export or Import Configuration

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

You can copy the list of RemoteApp programs and deployment settings from one Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) server to another RD Session Host server. You might want to do this if you want to configure multiple RD Session Host servers identically to host RemoteApp programs, for example, in an RD Session Host server farm.

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, on the RD Session Host server that you plan to configure, is the minimum required to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=83477.

To export the RemoteApp Programs list and deployment settings
  1. On the RD Session Host server, open RemoteApp Manager. To open RemoteApp Manager, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, point to Remote Desktop Services, and then click RemoteApp Manager.

  2. In the Actions pane, click Export RemoteApp Settings.

  3. Select either of the following options:

    • Export the RemoteApp Programs list and settings to another RD Session Host server

      If you select this option, enter the name of the RD Session Host server that you want to export the settings to in the RD Session Host server name box. For the export operation to succeed, the source RD Session Host server must have Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) access to the target RD Session Host server.

      ImportantImportant
      When you click OK, the RemoteApp Programs list and deployment settings will be automatically overwritten on the target RD Session Host server.

    • Export the RemoteApp Programs list and settings to a file

      If you select this option, click OK. In the Save As dialog box, specify a location to save the .tspub file, and then click Save.

To import the RemoteApp Programs list and deployment settings
  1. On the RD Session Host server, open RemoteApp Manager. To open RemoteApp Manager, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, point to Remote Desktop Services, and then click RemoteApp Manager.

  2. In the Actions pane, click Import RemoteApp Settings.

  3. Select either of the following options:

    • Import the RemoteApp Programs list and settings from another RD Session Host server

      If you select this option, enter the name of the RD Session Host server that you want to import the settings from in the RD Session Host server name box, and then click OK. For the import operation to succeed, the source RD Session Host server must have WMI access to the target RD Session Host server.

    • Import the RemoteApp Programs list and settings from a file

      If you select this option, click OK. In the Open dialog box, locate and then click the .tspub file that you want to import, and then click Open.

If you import a configuration, and the target RD Session Host server does not have a program in the RemoteApp Programs list installed or the program is installed in a different folder, the program will appear in the RemoteApp Programs list. However, the name will be displayed with strikethrough text.

noteNote
Only the RemoteApp Programs list and deployment settings are exported or imported. Any .rdp files or Windows Installer packages that were created from the programs will not be exported or imported. You must create new .rdp files or Windows Installer packages on each RD Session Host server, unless the server is a member of an RD Session Host server farm. If you specified a farm name when you created the .rdp files or Windows Installer packages, and the server where you want to copy the files to is a member of the same RD Session Host server farm, you can manually copy the files.
