5.Click the close button (top right) to close the Import\Export window.

6.If a profile or endpoint was imported please open Central Administration to correctly set the path(s) to point to the file-share copy\back-up that was made previously. The path will look like this when first opened:

Check the default path, if one was imported, on Default Values.

NOTE: System Cache also needs to be configured, especially if any of the profiles use asynchronous endpoint selection, which would be any profiles using File Share Librarian. It is important that this be done before any externalization is performed or files are uploaded in SharePoint.

If Use Breadcrumbs was selected on the General Settings page, the default retention setting on Default Values won’t be imported and will need to be entered manually.

WARNING: Do not use the same endpoint for more than one farm, i.e. development, staging, and production. This is not a supported configuration.
