@pfsweb , There is. You can copy the cfg files from the old XI server to the new one and simply import configs in the following order:

This is much easier than doing a backup-restore however you will have to recreate users in XI GUI, reenable mail settings, and the historical performance data will not get carried over from the old XI.

Correct you can download them from your old server and transfer them to your new server with filezilla or a utility like that.

Thank you for the post, but as there has not been any movement on this thread in a few weeks I will be locking it.
