Migration wizard for porting policy settings from SEP11 to fresh install of SEP12

Created: 25 Apr 2013 • Updated: 26 Apr 2013 | 5 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hello all,

 

We are planning to stand up new SEP12 servers soon and want to migrate the existing policies from our production SEP11.7 servers. I was wondering if there is a migration tool, query or report that could produce that information in lieu of screenshots of each separate policy window, client groups, etc.

 

Thanks in advance

There is no such option, you would need to export the policies and import into the new SEPM:

Hi,

SEPM policies are not saved anywhere other than database and we can't import SEPM 11 database into the SEPM 12.1 due to schema changes. You will have to do it manually at this point.

You can refer shared articles to achieve this task.

I had created an idea in the past very similar to this one. You can promote it.

Save SEPM policies along with the Server private key folder
