Mimesweeper for Web 5.1 - Is there a way to copy over the configuration/policies from one installation to another?

I am currently in the process of building a Mimesweeper For Web 5.1 server on a newer faster machine.
The old server is also running Mimesweeper For Web 5.1 and  is configured with various policies and settings which need to be carried over to the new server.

Rather than setting up these policies and confgi settings again is there any way to copy them over from the old installation?

The Mimesweeper For Web 5.1 is running on Win Server 2003 sp1 on both machines.

i couldn't find any link about it but this one...

it must be possible, read the mimesweeper tech. guides.

also mimesweeper gives policy templates at their site..

then it must be possible to create your own policy templates or to change it with yours..

if there's a backup/restore function its more possible to migrate it..

i don't know much..someone else can help you more i hope :)

FYI

Installer Mimesweeper 5.1 as normal.
From the old installation copy the config folder to a common location.
Within this config folder, edit the file wsw.cfg. Use the find tool to change all instances of IP and Computername of the old machine to that of the new machine and save.
Now copy this modified version of the config folder over the config folder in the new installation.
Restart the Mimesweeper services and all configurations/policies will be exactly the same as the old one.
