In your configuration, there are Broker Servers Alpha (for Brokers named BrokerA and BrokerB) and Beta (for Brokers named BrokerC and BrokerD). To save a configuration file for each server and each Broker in the configuration, use:
For Broker Servers:
broker_save -server alpha.adl Alpha
broker_save -server beta.adl Beta
The above commands save the configuration of Apha Broker Server in alpha.adl file, and the configuration of Beta Broker Server in beta.adl file.
For saving Brokers:
broker_save -broker A.adl BrokerA@Alpha
broker_save -broker B.adl BrokerB@Alpha
broker_save -broker C.adl BrokerC@Beta
broker_save -broker D.adl BrokerD@Beta
The above commands save the configuration of BrokerA, BrokerB, BrokerC, and BrokerD in A.adl, B.adl, C.adl, and D.adl files respectively.
