The export tool, XdExport, extracts data from a single XenDesktop 4 farm and produces an XML file from representations of the data values.
The schema of the XML file resides in the file XdFarm.xsd, which is included in the migration tool download XdExport.zip and XdImport.zip.
Although not recommended, you can run the tool while the XenDesktop Controller is in active use (for example, users are logged in to VDAs).
|-Verbose||Generates messages providing detailed progress information.|
|-FilePath <path>||Indicates the location of the XML file to which the farm data is exported. Default = .\XdSettings.xml|
|-Overwrite||Overwrites any file existing in the location specified in -FilePath. If you do not supply this parameter and an output file already exists, the tool fails with the message "Error: File already exists. Specify -Overwrite to allow the file to be overwritten. "|
|-? or -help||Displays text describing the parameters and exits without exporting any data.|
