There is a special wizard that guides you through the policy creation process. You can launch this wizard in one of the following ways:

 

At the Policies tab:

Use the CreatePolicy Create New Policy or CopyFromTemplate Create Policy from Template popup menu item.

 

At the Servers tab:

Right-click database/server/server group and use the Policy Maintenance Policies | CreatePolicy Create new policy or CopyFromTemplate Create from templates item.

 

If you call the wizard from the Policies page you will be asked to pick a server, group or solution which policy will be created for. You can create a policy for all servers within Group or Solution.
