deploy datawedge.db file for Zebra

I am trying to deploy a datawedge.db file to a bunch of Zebra devices to update a setting on it.  Running into some challenges.


Seems like whenever I export the settings from the datawedge app on a device and move it off the device physically, even if zipping before doing so, the file seems to get corrupt or I can't update the permissions like Soti says to.

Whenever I upload the file and try moving it like this it complains about the XML format basically:

<characteristic version="10.1" type="FileMgr">
<parm name="FileAction" value="1" />
<characteristic type="file-details">
<parm name="TargetAccessMethod" value="2" />
<parm name="TargetPathAndFileName" value="/enterprise/device/settings/datawedge/autoimport/datawedge.db" />
<parm name="IfDuplicate" value="1" />
<parm name="SourceAccessMethod" value="2" />
<parm name="SourcePathAndFileName" value="/sdcard/datawedge.db" />

This will error even if I take a file on the device and just try to move it with the above.  Seems these XML files don't work.  have the latest Zebra MX and OEMConfig apps.

If I just copy the datawedge.db file to a device and move it to the enterprise folder it complains the file is invalid or corrupt.  I'm at a loss how to deal with this.  Permissions on a local device working export and one I copied over seem to be the same.  Although Soti says to do a chmod 777 on it, which WS1 can't seem to do, the files don't seem to have that permission set for the local working one and the one I uploaded. 

Any thoughts?

A few questions to help better understand the situation.

1.) What Model are the devices in question?

2.) Is the device your exporting from the same model and specifications as the devices your importing to?

3.) What are the version(s) of the Datawedge app that the devices are running?

4.) From the XML provided i see you have already put the datawedge.db file onto the device in the filepath /sdcard/datawedge.db ?

5.) If so, What method did you use to get the datawedge.db file in location:  /sdcard  (examples: Soti, AirWatch file and action, Windows File Explorer, Android Debug)?

6.) You mention seeing errors on the device, where are these originating? (examples: Android system notification, Zebra Stage Now) and what is the verbatim of the error messages your seeing?

7.) How are you attempting to implement the below XML, i see you mentioned the xml files do not work (is this via a Barcode scan on the device, File/Action from an MDM)?
