I did the back up at the workstation. My boss wants to make sure it backed up with the alignment calibration settings. If not how can we make sure those get backed up so we dont have to redo it for every paper type we have again.
If the alignment is done in CWS it gets backed up.
Alignment done at the IOT or in SIQA are not backed up because they have no relation at all to the Fiery.
You can't, SIQA has no settings, it connects to the IOT (printer itself) and decides on settings obtained from the scanned file, it then applies/pushes those settings to the printer itself and store them in NVM (nonvolatile memory) locations. Even if there was something to be backed up on the PC within SIQA, it wouldn't help the IOT/Printer for it to have them.
SIQA is just a tool Xerox developed to let consumers do things without calling in a tech, NVM changes are done in Diagnostics mode, which isn't disclosed publicly (You can do really bad things in them) SIQA only gives you access to a few, and doesn't tell you how they are coded.
