The following example describes a simple procedure for remediating compliance failures.

For additional, more complex, remediation examples, see the following topics:

To remediate compliance

  1. In the hierarchical display of job results, choose the item to remediate:
    • To remediate individual servers, right-click the server in the Server view and select Remediate.
    • To remediate one failed check on an individual server, right-click the check in the Server view and select Remediate.
    • To remediate an individual check across all servers, right-click the check in the Rules view and select Remediate.
    • To remediate all noncompliant checks across all servers, right-click Server View and select Remediate.
  2. In the Remediate Job Result dialog box, enter the following information, and then click OK:
    • Name for the remediation package
    • Location in the Depot workspace to save the package
    • Location in your Jobs workspace to save the remediation/deploy job
    • Whether or not you want to
      • Keep each local property name unique in the remediation package
      • Use servers as the remediation target

        In this example, one failed check on an individual server is selected for remediation: the check for permissions of the at.exe file on the vs-tmp-w2003 server.

        The remediation package is created in the Depot and the Remediation Job is open for editing.

  3. You have the option to override any default Job behaviors:
    • On the General tab, you can change the autogenerated name of the Job or choose a different location to save it.
    • On the Targets tab, you can change the selection of targets.
    • On the Job Options tab, you can change the logging level.
    • On the Phase Options tab, you request simulation and set rollback features. For more information about these options, see Creating and modifying Software and BLPackage Deploy Jobs.
  4. Press OK.
    You can now view the newly created depot package and job.
  5. To run the new job, right-click the job and select Execute.
    The job is displayed in the Tasks in Progress view.
  6. After the job has completed executing, right-click the job and select Show Results.
    The job run status is displayed. You can track the job as it passes through the Simulate, Stage, and Commit phases.
  7. Rerun the compliance analysis and verify that the remediated check is compliant.
