Did you check the obvious: is the new template indeed active on the managed node? I am using OM9 nowadays, but in OM8 the message properties should also show that an AutoAction is defined (and one annotation should show it has started and another one should show the result).
Can you please check if the message was matched by the correct condition (In the Source field of the message in the Java GUI). Maybe the message was matched by a more generic condition. -- It is same policy name as I am changing in GUI.
And could you please again check that the policy was distributed correctly:
# grep UNIX95 /var/opt/OV/datafiles/policies/*/*_data -- No output of this command.
