How to Export & Import VPG Settings

Modified on Mon, 30 Oct, 2023 at 9:32 AM

You can save VPG settings to a downloadable JSON file. You can use this file to import the VPGs back to Zerto.

Exporting VPG Settings

1. In the VPGs tab, go to Actions > Export VPG Settings.

The Export VPGs Settings window is displayed.

2. Choose the VPGs Settings Time (date of the VPG settings to export). Zerto saves the VPG settings periodically. You can choose to export the settings from the current point in time, or older settings. The dropdown list displays all the available points in time.

When choosing the point in time, the VPG list updates according to the VPGs that existed at that specific point in time.

3. Choose the VPG(s) whose settings to export. By default, all VPGs are selected.

Click Export.

The JSON file is downloaded through your browser.

Importing VPG Settings

1. In the VPGs tab, go to Actions > Import VPG Settings.

The Import VPGs window is displayed.

2. Choose the JSON file previously exported through the ZVM GUI export function to the local machine.

The following export files are automatically generated:

  • ZVM Appliance = var/data/zerto/zvr/zvm/ExportedSettings
  • Windows ZVM = %Program Files%\Zerto\Zerto Virtual Replication\Zerto\Zerto Virtual Replication\ExportedSettings

Files from these two locations must also be exported via ZVM GUI export function to transform the formatting to be accepted by the new ZVM GUI import function.

The available VPGs defined in the files are displayed.

By default, all VPGs are selected. You can select which VPGs to import. Click Back to return to the upload step and choose another file.

3. Click Import.
