Where application profiles are stored?

Postby Support » Tue Jun 21, 2005 1:02 pm


Where does the application store my profiles?

How can I copy or back up my profiles?

Do I need to back up my profiles when reinstalling LDAP Administrator?


Softerra LDAP Administrator 2.X and Softerra LDAP Browser 2.X store profiles in the registry under the [1] and [2] registry keys respectively. Softerra LDAP Administrator 3.X keeps them in a file called metabase.stg, which is located in the application’s configuration folder [3].

You can copy or back up your version 2.X profiles using the Windows Registry Editor tool. To copy version 3.X profiles, just copy the metabase.stg file from [3]. Note: this file is not human readable, so it can't be read or manually edited. So in order to copy your profiles from one workstation to another, just copy the metabase.stg file into an appropriate destination PC folder.

You don’t need to back up/restore your profiles when reinstalling Softerra LDAP Administrator because they do not get removed at uninstall.
