I updated a shared policy with GUP details on SEPM Manager  of a site , does it mean that after replication the same policy gets applied to SEPM of other site ??

 

That is what is happening currently

Yes, once replication takes place, the SEPMs will be in sync.

and that will happpen across sites is it .... so if we want differnt policy for a group it should be via a non shared policy always ? is it

Yes, you can just break inheritance on the group and assign it it's own policy (non-shared)

What data is replicated?
A3: Policies, clients, and groups always get replicated. Logs ("Replicate logs from the local site to this partner site"), and packages and definitions ("Replicate client packages and LiveUpdate content between the local site and the partner site") are optional. Also the initial replication will replicate the entire database, and then subsequent replications will only replicate changed data based on the USN number in the database and the items selected.

Hi

Once replication gets completed it replicates the same policy as that of old SEPM
