Export Server Manager Settings

Windows Server Manager has come a long way since the Windows Server 2003 days. Personally, I use it all the time to manage hundreds of servers. But what if you changed computers and want to export all your Server manager settings to your new computer? Certainly it wouldn’t be very productive to sit there and have to manually enter in hundreds of servers back into Server Manager. Thankfully, there is an easy way export all your Server Manager settings to another computer.

Here is how to export Server Manager settings to another computer.

From the computer where you want to export the Server Manager setting from, copy the following two files and overwrite them on the new computer.

%appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\ServerManager\ServerList.xml
%localappdata%\Microsoft_Corporation\ServerManager.exe_StrongName_GUID\6.2.0.0\user.config

That’s it.
