Atualizada: Agosto de 2013

If you have sites in a Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 hierarchy, the child sites automatically receive copies of packages and collections from the parent site, but the child site does not automatically receive the same site settings as the parent site. There are several different ways to make sites have consistent configurations and objects.

  • If you want to transfer site settings under the site management node, use the Transfer Site Settings Wizard or command-line tool.

    noteNota
    The Transfer Site Settings Wizard and command-line tool can transfer only settings that would be common on all sites and do not require local context. For example, you can transfer whether heartbeat discovery is enabled but you cannot transfer the list of subnets to search for network discovery because it is not likely to be relevant at any other site.

    Also, you can transfer settings for a category only if that category is enabled. For example, you can transfer the hardware inventory schedule only if hardware inventory is enabled at the destination site.

  • If you want to transfer the properties for a package, use the Transfer Site Settings Wizard or command-line tool. However, the wizard and command-line tool transfer only properties of a package such as refresh schedule and sending priorities, but do not transfer the actual packages.

  • If you want to transfer the properties for a collection, use the Transfer Site Settings Wizard or command-line tool. However, the wizard and command-line tool transfer only the refresh schedule of a collection, not the actual collection. If you want to transfer a collection, use the Export Object Wizard and Import Object Wizard.

  • If you want to transfer reports and queries, use the Export Object Wizard and Import Object Wizard. The Transfer Site Settings Wizard does not support transferring settings for reports or queries.

  • Although the Transfer Site Settings wizard is limited as to the information about accounts that it can transfer, you can use the Manage Site Accounts tool (MSAC.exe) to set accounts in a site and its child sites. For more information, see How to Manage Accounts from the Command-Line.

For more information about the Export Object Wizard and Import Object Wizard, see How to Use the Export and Import Object Wizards.

You can use the Transfer Site Settings Wizard to transfer settings between the following types of sites:

  • Between Configuration Manager 2007 sites, including primary and secondary sites

  • From Configuration Manager 2007 sites to Systems Management Server 2003 secondary sites

noteNota
Settings that do not apply to secondary sites will not be transferred. For example, client agent configuration settings cannot be transferred to secondary sites because secondary sites cannot have clients assigned. Any settings that do not apply to the destination site will be discarded but reported in the wizard summary.

You cannot transfer settings from a Configuration Manager 2007 primary site to an SMS 2003 primary site using the wizard, but you can install the Systems Management Server 2003 Administration Feature Pack and use that to transfer settings between SMS 2003 sites. You cannot transfer settings from an SMS 2003 site to a Configuration Manager 2007 site.

The Transfer Site Settings Wizard has options for transferring settings. If you have network connectivity and you have permissions on both sites, you can transfer settings in realtime between two sites. If the sites are not connected, for example one site is on a lab network and one site is on the production network, or if you do not have permissions, for example if the two sites are in forests with no trust relationship, you can export the settings from one site into an XML file and then import them on the destination site. The wizard also allows you to export the settings while you are transferring them in real-time.

ImportantImportante
On the Export or Transfer Settings page, you have the option Include the current values for each setting. If you do not have connectivity or permissions to the source site, you must select this option because Configuration Manager 2007 will not be able to transfer the settings in real-time.

To transfer site settings using the wizard

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System CenterConfiguration Manager / Site Database / Site Management / <site code> - <site name>.

  2. Right-click <site code> - <site name> and then click Transfer Site Settings.

    noteNota
    You can also start the wizard by right-clicking the Collections or Packages nodes.

  3. On the Gather Settings page, click Export Settings and Site settings and then click Next.

  4. On the Select Source Site page, select the source site that contains the settings you want and then click Next.

    noteNota
    If both sites are in the same hierarchy and you have permissions, you can run the wizard on either the source or the destination site server. The Connected Site box tells you the site from which you are running the wizard.

  5. On the Select Site Settings page, select the settings you want to transfer and then click Next.

    noteNota
    Not all settings can be transferred. For example, client agent settings cannot be transferred to a secondary site because secondary sites cannot have assigned clients to receive the settings and network discovery is not available as an option. For more information, see Transfer Site Settings Parameters.

  6. On the Destination Site Selection page, select the site to receive the settings and then click Next.

    noteNota
    If you cannot connect to the destination site, click Next. You will see a message telling you that you can only export settings. Click OK to continue to the Export or Transfer settings page.

  7. On the Export or Transfer settings page, select Transfer settings now or Export settings for later use. If you want to export, specify a path and XML file name. Click Next.

  8. On the Summary page, verify the settings and then click Next.

  9. On the Completing Transfer Site Settings Wizard, click Close.

  4. On the Select Package and Collection Source page, select a collection, a package, or both, and then click Next.

  6. On the Destination Collection and Package Page, select the destination package and collection and then click Next.

Click OK to proceed or click Cancel to enter a different .xml file. Click Next.
