Moving a Snapshot from localhost to Dev
Hi fellow PMFers,
I exported a snapshot of PMF on my localhost and now I want to import it to a completely different Dev machine.
From Dev Studio MR, when I run PMF import on the Dev machine, I don't see the exported file(s) on my localhost.
Am I missing a step, concept or a few screws?
If I can't see across platforms to import, does anyone know of another way to move a snapshot from one machine to another.
Thanks.
Greg

1. Where'd you put the snapshot? PMF expects it in a folder under:

/approot/pmfdemo/pmf_snapshots/

2. A snapshot will only show up to Restore if you're restoring the snapshot to the *same version of PMF*. if you took a snapshot from 5.2.3 you'd have to restore it to 5.2.3.

thanks

Thanks, Bob.
Definitely a few screws loose.
I looked for the folder with the export but never in pmfdemo.
Thanks again.
