I need to assign a newly created policy on my EPO server to a server on my network, McAfee Orchestrator 5.1.1

I have to assign a new anti virus policy to a server on my Windows 2012 network. I went into my EPO server and duplicated an existing policy and changed it the way I want it to work. Now the policy exists but I am not sure how to assign it. I go to POLICY ASSIGNMENTS and SYSTEMS and find my server but I am not sure how to associated with my new policy. All advice welcome

For the v5 guide, see pg 171-172 for the "Assign a policy to a managed system"
OR even pg 173-174 on "Copy policy assignments" to "Paste policy assignments to a group" and "Paste policy assignments to a specific system"

Know also the policy overrides scheme as there can be conflict and which will be taken precedence (also in the above pdf guide)
Policies in ePO can be assigned to users and systems using any of the following rules:

System Tree Assignment
System Based Rule Assignment (ePO 4.6 and later only)
User Based Rule Assignment
