    Question:

     

      I'm administrating a Policy Server and I don't find the smobjexport
      command in the bin repository.  Where can I find it ?
     
    Environment:

     

    Policy Server 12.52SP1;

     

    Answer:

     

      There's no more smobjexport command even if you can see the
      smobjimport one. The reason is that this export functionality has been
      ported to the XPS Tools. So in order to get a full backup of your
      Policy Store data and Policy Server settings, you need to run command
      : XPSExport with the switch -xb.

     

      Note that this export will be usable only for the current Policy
      Server. If you need only the Policy Store data, you need to run
      XPSExport with -xp switch. Just run XPSExport command to have the full
      options.

     

      More by running XPSExport you need to use the -xp to only export the
      policies objects. The -xb will export all the Policy Server
      configuration including the registry settings which will break an
      external Admin Store if you have it.

     

      So the best way to have the Domain / Realm / Policies etc in a file is
      to use the -xp switch.
