Add database/server to an existing policy


There are several ways to add databases or servers to a policy. The way chosen depends on whether the policy was created on a solution or not and on tasks and steps count in a policy.

 

 

A policy was created on a solution with databases/servers

  1. If a policy includes a big number of tasks (steps) then do the following:
  • create a template based on this policy (without saving selected databases) by choosing the CreateTemplateFromPolicy Create Template from Policy its context menu item;
  • add needed databases/servers to the existing solution;
  • create policy on a renewed solution based on the created template by choosing the Policy Maintenance Policies | CopyFromTemplate Create from Templates of the solution context menu item.
  1. If a policy includes several tasks (steps) then it is recommended to open every step editor and check needed databases/servers on a Selection tab.

 

 

A policy was created on separate databases/servers

  1. If a policy includes a big number of tasks (steps) then it is recommended to do the following:
  • unite databases/servers from this policy into a solution and then add needed databases/servers to it;
  • create a template based on this policy (without saving selected databases) by choosing the CreateTemplateFromPolicy Create Template from Policy its context menu item;
  • create a policy based on this template on the created solution by using the Policy Maintenance Policies | CopyFromTemplate Create from Templates solution context menu item.
  1. If a policy includes several tasks (steps) then it is recommended to open every step editor and check needed databases/servers on a Selection tab.
