Sample Policy Files

When you install EPM-UL, you can choose to copy sample EPM-UL policy files to the installation host. These sample policy files include detailed explanations of what they do. You can use these files to learn how policy files are typically written for various scenarios. The directory that these sample files are copied to is determined by the GUI library directory option that you specify during installation. By default, this directory is /usr/local/lib/pbbuilder. A readme_samples text file in that directory includes a brief description of each sample file.
