HP Jet Admin - Export & Import Config?

Greetings,

A HP multi-functional (CM6040) which crashed a couple of days ago in our company has just been brought back online, however it has been completely reset to factory defaults.

I wish to use Jet Admin to 1) export the config from another fully configured HP MFP and export this onto the newly restored HP in order to save myself a LOT of time.

Is this possible?

Thanks in advance if anyone can help.  Documentation is hard to find :)

Firerunt,

Thanks for getting back to me.

This is speaking more about the Jet admin install on the server itself and not the actual config on the MFP.

I am looking for the option to clone/backup the MFP and restore this config onto anonther MFP

Yes. I understand that. There are instructions in the PDF to do that as well

@FireRunt

The document you provided only talks about cloning a WJA installation. What deckdee wants to do is to clone a printer.

I know that Xerox CentreWareWeb can do that - but I don't know if it will do it with non-Xerox printers. All its other functions work with any SNMP compatible printer, so I assume cloning will, too. Of course, if you only need to clone one printer, it may be quicker to do it manually than to install CWW to try it. On the other hand, I like CWW for its clean user interface, so you may want to have a look at it anyway.

None of these answers were truly what I wanted.    As I said:

'I am looking for the option to clone/backup the MFP and restore this config onto another MFP'

It can be done with devices from Xerox.  I was looking for the same option in Jetdirect
