You can export your Service configurations using the following ssoadm command:$ ./ssoadm export-svc-cfg -u [adminID] -f [passwordfile] -e [secretkey] -o [outputfile]
replacing [adminID], [passwordfile], [secretkey] and [outputfile] with appropriate values, where [secretkey] can be any value and is used to encrypt passwords from the configuration. You must then use the same key when importing the configuration through ssoadm import-svc-cfg.
You can import your Service configurations using the following ssoadm command:$ ./ssoadm import-svc-cfg -u [adminID] -f [passwordfile] -e [secretkey] -X [XMLfile]
