Exporting MBO PackagesLocate this document in the navigation structure

Export an MBO package to bundle one or more MBOs and package options to create a new instance of a deployment archive. Use the deployment archive to transport the package between SAP Mobile Servers.


Before beginning, review import requirements and best practices.


  1. In the left navigation pane of SAP Control Center, expand Domains > <Domain name> > Packages.
  2. In the right administration pane, select the box adjacent to the name of the package and click Export.
  3. Click Next.
  4. Click Finish.
  5. Select the file system target for the exported contents and click Save.
    Note Ensure that you do not hide the file type extension when you name the export archive; otherwise, the *.zip extension becomes invisible, which adversely affects the outcome of the export process.
    A status message indicates the success or failure of the export transaction. If the transaction succeeds, a ZIP file is created in the location you specified. You can then import this file on another SAP Mobile Server.

Next Steps

Deliver the file to the appropriate person, or deploy or transport the exported package to the appropriate server.
