SEPM policies are not saved anywhere other than database.


Manually export the SEPM policies to import it later on.

In many cases it's been observed If SEPM database is corrupted then we have no choice other than to create new policies again.

SEPM should store all the policies in the background.

I vote for the database as primary, and on the file system as secondary. An issue would come into play when there are multiple SEP domains with policies having the same name, but there are ways around that, such as identifying the domain in the policy file name.
