Copying PS200 Config files to mutiple new PS200s

Hello all,

I am just starting to configure some new PS200 Omega terminals and have a question. According to the 2nd appendix in the PS200 Installation and configuration guide, I should be able to copy the majority of an existing PS200 configuration and transfer those config files to the new ones via USB. So far I am striking out. Anyone ever done this before? When I insert a USB stick into an open USB port on a configured PS200. nothing happens, no beeps, and no change on the USB activity light. Any suggestions? It sure would help make the setup of 10 new PS200s a little easier.


To replicate configuration settings using a USB stick, follow these steps:

1. Insert a USB stick into one of the USB ports of a PS200 terminal. You will hear 5 beeps notifying you that the USB is ready to copy the contents of the PS200 to the USB stick.

2. After hearing 3 beeps, remove the USB stick. The beeps notify that the configuration data and the firmware have been written to the USB stick.

3. Insert the USB stick to another PS200 terminal. You will hear 3 beeps notifying you that the USB stick is loading the configuration settings to the new terminal.

The replication process copies the following configuration files to the USB stick:

 All settings from network.ini except hostname and IP address.

 All settings from firewall.ini except printerMAC.

 Syslog.ini

 Hosts

 CACertificates.crt

 pref.ini

 admin.ini

 pedi.ini

 theme/*

If the replication process is unsuccessful, the PS200 emits 10 short beeps. The following is a list of the possible causes of a failed USB replication process:

 The configuration data is corrupted.

 The USB stick is too small to fit the configuration data.

 The USB stick is read-only.

 You have unplugged the USB stick during a read/write operation
