You can decide whether a host profile component or subprofile is applied or considered during compliance check. This allows administrators to eliminate non-critical attributes from consideration or ignore values that, while part of the host profile, are likely to vary between hosts.


  1. Edit a host profile.
  2. Expand the Host Profile Component hierarchy until you reach the desired component or component element.
  3. Disable the checkbox next to a component to remove it from being applied during remediation or considered during a profile compliance check.

    The check box is enabled by default. If you disable the check box so this component or component element is not checked for compliance or applied during remediation, the other subprofiles that are enabled will still be applied and checked.
