Importing templates makes template creation easier. If an existing template contains many of the settings that you want to use again, you can import the existing template into a policy instead of manually creating a new template and duplicating the settings. Backup Exec does not import any template rules that are associated with the imported template.
To import a template into a policy
Backup Exec copies the templates into the policy and provides the default name of <template name> <number>, where <number> indicates that this is the second copy of this template, or the third copy, etc. To change the template name or other properties, select it from the list and click Edit Template.
