Description

The Import-CMAntimalwarePolicy cmdlet imports antimalware policies for System Center 2016 Endpoint Protection. When you enable Endpoint Protection, Configuration Manager applies a default antimalware policy to client computers. Configuration Manager supplies a selection of predefined antimalware policy templates. You can import into these predefined templates into Configuration Manager and assign them to Configuration Manager client computers in your hierarchy. These templates are available in the folder <ConfigMgr Install Folder>\AdminConsole\XMLStorage\EPTemplates.

Note

Run Configuration Manager cmdlets from the Configuration Manager site drive, for example PS XYZ:\>. For more information, see getting started.
