Multiple policies active on single server

Hello

Is only one policy applied at a time e.g. under Server Protection?
If I adjust the base policy, for example, do I have to adjust the cloned policies as well?
Is it not possible to apply multiple policies to one server?

I expected the exceptions to the copied policies to be inherited.
When customizing the base policy the copied ones are not updated?

Regards Patrick

  • Hello ,

    Thank you for reaching community forum. Yes, Only one policy can be applied for server and endpoint clients, and it’s impossible to enforce two policies simultaneously. 
    When updating a certain policy like base policy. The changes will only apply to the base policy it self and not to the other policies available on your central. 
    When you clone the base policy, what is currently applied to the policy settings is the only setting that will be carried on once you clone the policy. Any additional changes after performing the clone will not going to reflect the cloned policy. So if you wish to apply new settings for your existing server, you need to apply them to the existing policy wich your server is currently using.
