Hi Govind,

have a look at the script "wato_import.py", found in OMD folder
~/share/doc/check_mk/treasures/ (folder differs in standalone installations
but is also available. If you're not using OMD I'm sure you will be able to
tweak it to work in standalone installation.

This script is the best chance to get what you want if your check_mk
version is older than 1.2.5i6. 1.2.5i6 and later provide WATO web API,
 documented here: http://mathias-kettner.de/checkmk_wato_webapi.html
Beware the action "get_all_hosts" is new and only available in versions of
1.2.7 or after 1.2.6p10.
