Command Reference > infacmd isp Command Reference > ExportDomainObjects


Exports native users, native groups, roles, connections, and cluster configurations from the Informatica domain to an XML file.
If you do not want to export all objects in the domain, use an infacmd export control file to filter the objects that you want to export.
Use the ExportDomainObjects and ImportDomainObjects commands to migrate objects between two different domains of the same version. To export native users and groups from domains of different versions, use the infacmd isp ExportUsersAndGroups command.
When you export a group, you export all subgroups and users in the group.
You cannot export the Administrator user, the Administrator group, users in the Administrator group, the Everyone group, or the LDAP users or groups. To replicate LDAP users and groups in an Informatica domain, import the LDAP users and groups directly from the LDAP directory service.
If the command fails with a Java memory error, increase the system memory available for infacmd. To increase the system memory, set the -Xmx value in the ICMD_JAVA_OPTS environment variable.
The infacmd isp ExportDomainObjects command uses the following syntax:

<-DomainName|-dn> domain_name

<-UserName|-un> user_name

<-Password|-pd> password

[<-SecurityDomain|-sdn> security_domain]

[<-Gateway|-hp> gateway_host1:port gateway_host2:port...]

[<-ResilienceTimeout|-re> timeout_period_in_seconds]

<-ExportFile|-fp> export_file_name

[<-ExportControlFile|-cp> export_control_file_name]

[<-RetainPassword|-rp> retain_password]

The following table describes infacmd isp ExportDomainObjects options and arguments:
Required. Name of the Informatica domain. You can set the domain name with the -dn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN. If you set a domain name with both methods, the -dn option takes precedence.
Required if the domain uses Native or LDAP authentication. User name to connect to the domain. You can set the user name with the -un option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_USER. If you set a user name with both methods, the -un option takes precedence.
Optional if the domain uses Kerberos authentication. To run the command with single sign-on, do not set the user name. If you set the user name, the command runs without single sign-on.
Required if you specify the user name. Password for the user name. The password is case sensitive. You can set a password with the -pd option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_PASSWORD. If you set a password with both methods, the password set with the -pd option takes precedence.
Required if the domain uses LDAP authentication. Optional if the domain uses native authentication or Kerberos authentication. Name of the security domain to which the domain user belongs. You can set a security domain with the -sdn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_SECURITY_DOMAIN. If you set a security domain name with both methods, the -sdn option takes precedence. The security domain name is case sensitive.
If the domain uses native or LDAP authentication, the default is Native. If the domain uses Kerberos authentication, the default is the LDAP security domain created during installation. The name of the security domain is the same as the user realm specified during installation.
gateway_host1:port gateway_host2:port ...
Required if the gateway connectivity information in the domains.infa file is out of date. The host names and port numbers for the gateway nodes in the domain.
Optional. Amount of time in seconds that infacmd attempts to establish or re-establish a connection to the domain. If you omit this option, infacmd uses the timeout value specified in the INFA_CLIENT_RESILIENCE_TIMEOUT environment variable. If no value is specified in the environment variable, the default of 180 seconds is used.
Required. Path and file name of the export file.
If you do not specify the file path, infacmd creates the file in the directory where you run infacmd.
Optional.Name and path for the export control file that filters the objects that are exported.
Optional. Set to true to retain encrypted passwords for users and connections in the exported file. When set to false, user and connection passwords are exported as empty strings. Default is false.
Optional. Overwrites the export file if a file with the same name already exists. If you omit this option, the command prompts you for a confirmation before it overwrites the file.
