When attempting to export any type of system configuration data through the 'Admin >> Configuration data >> Configuration export' tool the process fails with either the error
".NET Framework execution was aborted by escalation policy because of out of memory. System.Threading.ThreadAbortException: Thread was being aborted." or "Exception of type 'System.OutOfMemoryException' was thrown."
In the SmartClient this happens after several minutes of processing. In the WebShell the error is shown at zero seconds even if some time has passed.
Up to the point of the failure system performance may suffer. After the failure no configuration export file will be produced.
We are currently evaluating this issue and will update this article when we have more information.
