Importing resource family updates

Changing and updating families has a significant impact on the QualiServer and should be done with care.

The system.xml configuration file contains updates to the default families, models and attributes.

To update the Resource Families document:

  1. In the Admin ribbon, click Resource Families.

    The Resource Families explorer is displayed.

  1. Right-click the Resource Families root and select Import from the context menu.

  1. Navigate to the Resource Management Additional files > Configuration folder, select the XML file containing the resource family updates, and click Open.

    Note about attributes referenced in the XML: Referencing attributes whose names contain unsupported characters may cause unexpected behavior. For details about attribute names, see Creating an Attribute.

  2. Repeat the process to import updated Resource Family samples, L1 switches configuration files, and traffic family libraries.

Exporting resource families

You can save a resource family's structure to an XML file that can be later used to update the settings of resource families, models and attributes.

To export a resource family structure:

  1. Right-click the Resource Families root folder and select Export from the context menu.

  1. In the Export Configuration dialog, specify the file name and location.
  2. Click Save.

    The updates are saved to the XML file.
