I thought the tool would help us document our IT Policy settings but...
itpolicyimportexport -n BesServer1 -db besmgmt
Prompt: Enter the file name [Entered one with a .txt extension]
Prompt: Enter an encryption password [Entered one]
Prompt: IT Policies: 1. Default [Chose 1]
Text: Including Policy "Default"
Writing Policy "Default"
Result: a text file that had nothing but strange characters like
, only not as nice looking.
Just thought I'd pass that on. We have a workaround, which is to export the blank IT Policy template (one doesn't need the Resource Kit for that) and then hand-enter the settings for each item, and record the changes in a log.
I guesstimate to my customers that Research In Motion believes that the IT Policy tables are extremely privileged proprietary information, and that they set their tools up accordingly.
