Deployment Archives

A deployment archive is a compressed file that contains actual entries that is created when you export from the source environment.

You move the deployment archive from the source environment to the target environment. Then you import from the deployment archive into the target environment.

To move a deployment archive, you need access to the installation directories on the computer where IBM® Cognos® software is installed. This location is set in the configuration tool. The default location is c10_location/deployment. For information about changing the location, see the IBM Cognos Installation and Configuration Guide.

If you export to an existing deployment archive, the contents of the archive are overwritten.
