KPI history export file cannot be imported

Technote (troubleshooting)


When you export the KPI history for a model and try to import it on a different system, the data does not get imported, even though the process states CWMKP1068I: SUCCESS Import complete.


The exported file is encoded in UTF-16, while the import expects a UTF-8 encoded file.

Resolving the problem

After exporting you should convert the file to UTF-8. This can be done by using the iconv command like this:

iconv -f UTF-16 -t UTF-8 -o /tmp/kpi_history_export_utf8.csv /tmp/kpi_history_export.csv

Alternatively, you can open the file in VI, and use the following commands:
:e ++enc=utf16le
:write ++enc=utf-8 kpi_history_export_utf8.csv
