Problem

In a freshly installed NetBackup Enterprise 8.2 when creating a new policy the "Backup selection"  the "Pathname or directive:" selections roll-down bar is empty.

Error Message

No path or selections list, cant browse to the volumes that you are planning to protect.
Where as the actual working environment should be as below,

Cause

Program Files\Veritas\NetBackup\db\class_template may be empty

Solution

If used policy wizard the browse to the volume is available.However this will not allow you to modify the same selection list later.

Copy all the templates from the running environment of 8.2 NetBackup to the new 8.2 test environment, now while creating a NDMP policy should give all the options.
