If your ZENworks Management Zone has complex Closest Server rules configured, you might want to export these rules as part of your backup procedure.
The following zman commands are useful when backing up Closest Server rules:
location-copy-rules (loccp): Copies Closest Server rules data from a source device or device folder to one or more destination devices or device folders.
location-export-rules-to-file (loctf): Exports Closest Server rules data (in XML format) to a file. The XML file can be used as input for creating or appending to the Closest Server rules.
location-import-rules-from-file (locff): Imports Closest Server rules data (in XML format) from a file.
For more information about these commands and their usage, see
Location Rules Commands in the ZENworks 10 Configuration Management Command Line Utilities Reference.
