I've never tried the MSC way so I don't know if that'll work. What I know works is exporting the registry entries and importing that into the new box. How many servers are we talking about? BTW, I don't remember the registry entry as it has been over 2 years since I've done that hack.
Any other ideas on what I need to export to move my EM settings to a new PC? I tried both the reg and the file copy. The new Enterprise Manager only sees the Groups I had created on the old client. Your help is appreciated.
Did you copy all of the string values underneath each eky in Registered Servers X? To do this, highlight Registered Servers X, go to File..Export. Save it to a file. Copy that file name over to your new box. Double click on it. Is that what you did? If so, I've never seen it not work for 2000 servers. Do you have a mix of 2000 and other older versions of SQL Server?
