Solution

Background
As newer hardware becomes available, it may become necessary to move the MarkVision Professional Server to another machine. Since MarkVision Professional (MVP) is extremely customizable, you may not want to repeat the process of creating folders and filters and rediscovering devices when you move it to a new machine. The steps below outline a method of creating a backup of MVP's customized data, and installing that data onto a new machine.

  1. Stop the MarkVision Server (see below for instructions).
  2. Back up the directory in which the customized data files are stored. Files can be copied to any media which can be read by the new machine.




      • On Windows, the default directory is C:\Program Files\Lexmark\MarkVision Server\granite\data
      • On UNIX and Linux, the default directory is /var/spool/markvision/data
      • On Macintosh, the default directory is /var/spool/markvision/data


  1. Install the MarkVision Server on the new machine.
  2. Stop the MarkVision Server.
  3. Replace the data files saved in step 2 above by copying them into the same locations on the new machine.
  4. Restart the MarkVision Server.

NOTE: The files listed above do not  contain settings for window and frame sizes, or positional information.
