Quick run down......exported a policy(antivirus and antispyware policy) out of SEP.  I'm trying to import that policy into another copy of SEP running on a different server in a completly different domain.  When importing the policy, I get an error that says "Failed to import the policy. Error: invalid import file."

Anyone know if this is possible?

how did you transport the import file? for instance [wrong FTP type|some_editors] may add linefeeds to your carriage returns in that file and vice versa. This simple thing can be often overlooked when making the minor changes needed.
if that kind of import should be possible, be completely sure that your file syntax stays exactly the same.

Corrected the problem myself......simple.  It was failing because I was using a trail version.  After trying on a licensed copy, everything worked fine.
Thanks for the help and suggestions.
