I have been testing HIDS on a system that will not be our Primary Administation server. Am I able to transfer all the Schedules, Surveillance Groups, Templates, and Properties to the system that will be the primary Admin server?
Solved! Go to Solution.

For the Schedules, Groups and Templates, you can copy the .sched and .grp files whose basenames are the names of your customized schedules and groups and which reside in /var/opt/ids/gui/SurveillanceSchedules and /var/opt/ids/gui/SurveillanceGroups, respectively. There is no need to copy anything from /var/opt/ids/gui/Templates, as these do not contain any of your settings (all template property values are in your .grp files).
For the GUI properties, you should be able to simply copy the files in /etc/opt/ids/gui/config to your new admin host.
In order to avoid having to regenerate your certificates for your admin guide and all your agents, you should also copy over the files in /etc/opt/ids/certs/admin.

I forgot to tell you that you need to change the REMOTEHOST entry in /etc/opt/ids/ids.cf on all your agents to have the IP address or host name of your new admin host. You can do this by running:
./IDS_importAgentKeys key_bundle.tar.Z admin_hostname
where admin_hostname is the name or IP address of your new admin host.
Or can you manually edit ids.cf to modify the value of REMOTEHOST.
The existing certs were fine.
A FYI in case you do this again.
