How to Backup OpenVAS Configuration

Does OpenVas support to export& import its configuration? For example, I installed OpenVas on laptop1 and laptop2, can I import the OpenVas configuration from laptop1 to laptop2? Thank you.

Under gvm-9, you essentially need to backup the SQLite db, which is normally located under /usr/local/var/lib/openvas/mgr/tasks.db, and the GPG keys files, located under /usr/local/var/lib/openvas/openvasmd/gnupg.

On top of this, if you changed some default configuration files, then you can also backup /usr/local/etc/openvas/
