I am creating a policy in the policies tab, it's a new installation that doesn't have any existing policy to copy from. I have noticed that whenever I use a template while creating any policy from the attached snapshot. The policy became inactive and when I creating a policy without using a template its working fine. since we bought this solution mainly to secure our database that's why I have to use the policy configuration wizard.
Most of us do not use the policy wizard. I tried it once or twice and did not like it.
I still had to go back afterwards to edit some parameters.
It is possible that the wizard configures the policy as Inactive because some parameters are incomplete.
I prefer to use the 'old school' manual method and can therefore not tell you why exactly the wizard has a default of Inactive.
