Having issues with downloading the server_prefs.xml file from the Visualization Configuration Administration UI. Does anyone know where on the server this file is located...I'll just go get it manually via Windows Explorer.
It looks like this data is vaulted. Each file associated with a WVSConfigurationTemplate object in the database and is stored as an ApplicationData object.
What happens when you try to manually download the file from the Visualization Configuration Administration?
Yes, for sure this is vaulted.
I would check MS logs while trying to download the xml. In case the file is not present in the vaults or if there are some problems with vault configuration (not mounted, valid..), there will be error something like wt.fv.master - Error in doDirectDownload.
Hope this helps.
The configuration templates are vaulted when you have usevaultsforallcontent set to true, if not it will be stream data. You can query the db using the below query to get the location of the configuration files. There were some issues with downloading server prefs when the preferred file server is set to a replication site in pre 10.1 M040 release.
