    Server Raw Data Source File Location


      Had a server blue screen on us this week... Trying to install to a new location. My question is, since I have the drive where the original server was located, does anyone know if it is possible to copy some raw files from the old server file structure to the new structure to quickly/easily bring over the data sources that I had on the old server? Make sense? Thanks, Chris.

          Hey Chris -


          Any extracts that are associated with published Tableau data sources will be found in C:\ProgramData\Tableau\Tableau Server\data\tabsvc\dataengine. However, copying these will do you no good  on their own - Tableau needs to be told that these files actually exist on the file system via entries made into our metadata repository - and there's no easy way to do that "manually".
