ENS Policy

In the past, I remember copying the ENS Policy file from one machine to another when trying to update the policy on a device that is not communicating with EPO.  Does anyone know what file I am referring to and where it is located.

Re: ENS Policy

I believe you may be talking about using the ESCONFIG Tool to export a policy from one machine to import in another: https://docs.mcafee.com/bundle/endpoint-security-10.6.0-installation-guide-unmanaged-windows/page/GU...

Re: ENS Policy

I don't remember it being that complicated.  All I remember doing is copying a file containing the ENS policy from the working machine's ENS directory to the broken machine's ENS directory.

Re: ENS Policy

You could be referring to the xml files stored in various locations on the install path however simply copying these from another system would not be sufficient to apply them.

The only option you would have to export/ import ENS policies is the mentioned ESConfig Tool.

Re: ENS Policy

I was unsuccessful with that command, but am almost 100% positive I just copied\replaced the file on the machine not talking to EPO.

 

Command used:

ESConfigTool.exe /export C:\ens.policy /module ESP

 

- I also used the /module TP suffix.
