BE 2010 R2: Creating Jobs from Copied Policies

Hi,

My question should be fairly simple I imagine.  I originally created a Policy to backup a single server to our SAN, with Full and Differential templates, and a template Rule that if a conflict occurs, to Start the Differential after the Full is finished.  I believe this then created the Jobs that go with the templates...can't quite remember?

Now I've copied that Policy to the same media server as I am looking to backup the same thing to a different media type (Exagrid Disk Appliance).  I modify the copied policy to account for this.  This did not create the jobs automatically like I thought it would.  Do I manually have to create these jobs, or will the new, copied policy create them upon first run?  I don't see anything in the job monitor as an upcoming job, obviously.

But maybe there's a better way to backup the same job to different appliances (SAN and NAS)?  Any insight would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Rory

I guess the selection list is not associated with the new policy. You will have to right click

on the new policy and then you will have to select "new job using this policy"
