The input values for the AppLocker policy can be an AppLockerPolicy object or an XML-formatted file containing the AppLocker policy.

This example sets the GPO specified in the LDAP path to contain the AppLocker policy that is specified in C:\Policy.xml.


PS C:\> Set-AppLockerPolicy -XMLPolicy C:\Policy.xml -LDAP "LDAP://DC13.Contoso.com/CN={31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=Contoso,DC=com"
