Exporting or importing the Virtual Configuration Center (VCC) 'Bundle.ZIP' configuration file

Issue description

The Virtual Configuration Center (VCC) is a feature component of the device firmware that assists in managing device settings. It allows users to export settings from one device and then import that settings package into a different device. A user can also export a settings bundle, edit that package, and then import the modified settings bundle to a new device.

This article explains how to export and import the VCC Configuration File. The steps differ slightly between generations of devices so make sure to follow the steps that match the user’s device.

Note:

The VCC system will provide user feedback as to whether an Import or Export operation was successful or failed. In the event that an issue needs to be escalated with Lexmark's product engineering team, the VCC Configuration File will need to be captured and submitted along with the details of the VCC failure message.
