Handle configuration files

Copy /var/rudder/configuration-repository

The simplest way to migrate your server to a new one is to copy /var/rudder/configuration-repository from your former server to the new one. In this folder you will find all your Rules/Groups/Directives/Techniques are stored. By copying that folder you will keep the git tree used by your server and keep your comments.

  • Copy /var/rudder/configuration-repository to your new server
  • In Rudder UI Go to Administration > Policy Server
  • Reload the Technique Library
  • Go to Administration > Archives
  • In Global Archive, "Choose an archive" select Latest git commit
  • Click on Restore everything
  • After deployment, your configuration should be restored

Use Archive feature of Rudder

Alternatively, you can follow the Archive/Import procedures described in Archives
