Online Documentation for SQL Backup for SQL Server

Policy creation wizard

This chapter explains how to create a new policy in EMS SQL Backup.


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.


Creating_from_template - Select Server


Note: Creating a Policy for a database means creating policy for the server on which database is stored. This database will be marked by default in steps that require database selection.


Note: When you create a policy from a template it will be applied to all databases of the server irrespective of the database selected.


Proceed to the starting step of Policy wizard.
