To import IPSec policies
Create a console containing IP Security Policies. Or, open a saved console file containing IP Security Policies.
In the console tree, click IP Security Policies on Name.
Click Action, point to All Tasks, and then click Import Policies.
Type the path and the name of the file from which you are importing the IPSec policy information, and then click Open.
To manage Active Directory-based IPSec policies, you must be a member of the Domain Admins group in Active Directory, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority. To manage local or remote IPSec policies for a computer, you must be a member of the Administrators group on the local or remote computer. If the computer is joined to a domain, members of the Domain Admins group might be able to perform this procedure. For more information, see Default local groups and Default groups.
To create a console containing IP Security Policies, start the IP Security Policies snap-in. To open a saved console file, open MMC. For more information, see Related Topics.
Importing IPSec policies replaces existing IPSec policies with the same name.
