Duplicating a Policy

Updated: January 1, 2011

Applies To: Forefront Endpoint Protection

If you need a new policy that is very similar to an existing Forefront Endpoint Protection policy, you can duplicate the existing Forefront Endpoint Protection policy and edit the duplicated Forefront Endpoint Protection policy as required, instead of creating the policy from scratch.

To duplicate a policy

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, expand System Center Configuration Manager, expand Site Database, expand Computer Management, expand Forefront Endpoint Protection, and then click Policies.

  2. Select the policy you want to duplicate.

  3. In the Actions pane, click Copy Policy.

  4. Type the name for the new policy in the New policy name field, and then click OK.

The new policy is assigned the highest precedence. For more information about changing policy precedence, see Setting Policy Precedence.
