The FEP ADMX template is used in conjunction with Group Policy Editor in order to manage FEP antimalware settings with Group Policy.
FEP Server Role Policies for Use with System Center Configuration Manager (fepserverrolepoliciesforusewithconfigmgrui.exe)These files are FEP policy XML files, each with optimized settings for a particular server role such as SQL, Exchange or Active Directory. The settings enable exclusions and change other FEP antimalware engine settings to minimize the impact of FEP on the designated server workload.The policy files for use with ConfigMgr are designed to be used only in conjunction with the FEP management node in the ConfigMgr management console. Each file contains role-optimized settings for a particular server role, as well as default settings appropriate for any Windows server.These files should not be used with the FEP Group Policy tool, as Group Policy merging might not result in the desired configuration being applied to the system if two or more policies are applicable to the same system.
