SQL Server 2012 includes a plethora of predefined sample policies, which can be leveraged by importing them into a SQL Server 2012 system. The policies available for import are located in the default installation drive, which is usually located at
C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Tools\Policies\DatabaseEngine\1033 (or
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\110\Tools\Policies\DatabaseEngine\1033 if you are running in a 64-bit environment). As mentioned earlier, you can import the desired policies by right-clicking the
Policies node and selecting Import. The sample templates are categorized by SQL Server feature such as Database Engine, Reporting Services, and Analysis Services.
