To locally approve individual file instances, perform the following procedure.

Note: To get more information about a file before you locally approve it, click the View Details button in the file table to bring up the File Instance Details page. This page also includes an Approve Locally choice on the Actions menu if the file is not already globally or locally approved.


  1. Locate the file instance(s) to locally approve in the file table.
  2. In the table, select the check box to the left of each file instance to locally approve. Confirm that the computer name next to each file is a computer you want to affect.
  3. On the Action menu, click Approve Locally. The Local State of each checked file becomes Locally Approved for the computer on which it appeared.
