You can review compliance information for the virtual machines, virtual appliances, and hosts against baselines and baseline groups that you attach.

About this task

When you select a container object, you view the overall compliance status of the attached baselines, as well as all the individual compliance statuses. If you select an individual baseline attached to the container object, you see the compliance status of the baseline.

If you select an individual virtual machine, appliance, or host, you see the overall compliance status of the selected object against all attached baselines and the number of updates. If you further select an individual baseline attached to this object, you see the number of updates grouped by the compliance status for that baseline.

Procedure

    For example, Hosts and Clusters or VMs and Templates.

  3. Select an object from the inventory.
  4. Click the Update Manager tab to view the scan results and compliance states.
