Migrating On-premises OfficeScan Policy Settings to the Apex Central Console

OfficeScan XG SP1 (or later) provides a Policy Export Tool that you can use to migrate on-premises OfficeScan server policies to the Apex Central console to ensure that you maintain your current level of security without needing to reconfigure all of your current policy settings.

Note:

The Policy Export Tool can only export domain-level policy settings. If you have configured individual Security Agents with customized settings, you must manually re-create the individual policies.

  1. Go to the source OfficeScan XG SP1 server computer.
  2. Use a command line editor and point to the following directory:

    <Server installation directory>\PCCSRV\Admin\Utility\PolicyExportTool

  3. Execute the following command:

    PolicyExportTool.exe -cmconsole

    The Policy Export Tool saves the policy settings in the following location:

    <Server installation directory>\PCCSRV\Admin\Utility\PolicyExportTool\PolicyClient_CMConsole.zip

  4. Log on to the Apex Central console and go to Policies > Policy Management.
  5. In the Product drop-down, select Apex One Security Agent.
  6. Click Import Settings.
  7. Select the <Server installation directory>\PCCSRV\Admin\Utility\PolicyExportTool\PolicyClient_CMConsole.zip file and import.

    The migrated policy settings display in the Apex One Security Agent Policy Management list. Apex Central appends the original OfficeScan domain name to the end of each policy name.
