Yes. It will work for all NetBackup versions.

The only reason why I mentioned the 6.5 manual, is because these detailed steps and screenshots are no longer included in newer manuals.

The only thing that you have to remember with W2008 is to always open the NetBackup Admin Console with right-click, run as Administrator. (Best to disable UAC.)

I do not have access to a NBU server at the moment.

Newer versions of NBU manuals no longer have screenshots, but I managed to find detailed steps as well as screenshots in NBU 6.5 Admin Guide I: http://www.symantec.com/docs/TECH52803 

See page 168.

1 In the NetBackup Administration window, expand NetBackup Management > Policies. 
Double-click the policy where you want to change the backup selections list. The Change Policy dialog  appears. 
Click the Backup Selections tab. 
To add an entry, at the end of the list, click under the last entry in the backup selections list, then click New. An edit box appears.

(See manual for screenshots and instructions.)
