Great. Now will show you how to export and publish the template use SMB Share. First we need to create a folder in RMS Server. Run the below PowerShell command to create a Folder
New-Item c:\RMSTemplates -ItemType Directory

Right click on Rights management template and select Properties.
Enable the Export Option and browse the SMB path which we create earlier and apply
Now you could see the Distributed rights policy options
In the SMB Share folder, You can see that XML file is available and contains the template which we created.
