2. Export the virutal portal config by running the following XMLAccess command:

<portal_install_root>binXmlAccess -user wpsadmin -password wpsadmin -url http://localhost:10040/wps/config/vp -in <portal_install_root>docxml-samplesExport.xml  -out C:ExportOut.xml

3. Perform the following steps before running import task:

3.1 Copy the custom portlet war files inside <portal_install_root>installableApps directory.

3.2 Deploy themes, skins and theme policies on target

3.3 If the source and target repositories are different and are using different ldap suffixes, then review the ACLs in xml file and replace the source users with appropriate users on target in xml file.

3.4 Export/import any personalization rules from source to target if exists

3.5 XML file will automatically create pages, portlet clones & config, ACLs on pages & portlets, credential vaults, portlet wires.

4. Import virtual portal config by running following XMLAccess command:

<portal_install_root>binXmlAccess -user wpsadmin -password wpsadmin -url http://localhost:10040/wps/config/vp -in <portal_install_root>docxml-samplesExport.xml  -out C:ExportOut.xml
