Hello,

I'm going through the process of upgrading our IDM 3.6 environment to
4.0.1a. I've added a couple of new eDir 8.8.6 servers into the tree and
then to the driver set. With four environments to upgrade (dev, int,
cert, prod), and 25 drivers in each driver set, it is becoming extremely
tiresome having to copy the driver settings to the new servers. Here's
what I'm doing in Designer:

Code:
--------------------
From Designer, for each driver...
Properties > Driver Configuration > Driver Module
Driver Object Password > Set Password... (if applicable)
Properties > Driver Configuration > Authentication:
For each server in the driver set:
Application authentication > Set Password... (if applicable)
Remote Loader authentication > Set Password... (if applicable)
Properties > Driver Configuration > Driver Parameters:
For each server in the driver set:
Click Edit XML... and copy/paste the configuration.
Properties > GCVs:
For each server in the driver set:
Click Edit XML... and copy/paste the configuration.
Properties > Named Passwords:
For each server in the driver set:
Create and specify the Named Password. (if applicable)

--------------------


I can understand the need to do the steps relating to passwords, but is
there no way to automate the rest of this? I did a search and didn't
find anything short of possible using the NDK (which is beyond my skill
set). None of the configuration needs to be any different on the new
servers. Do I just need to get an intern?

Thanks in advance!
