You can decide whether a host profile component or subprofile is applied or considered during a compliance check. This action 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.
- Edit a host profile.
- Expand the Host Profile Component hierarchy until you reach the desired component or component element.
- Disable the check box next to a component.
The check box is enabled by default. If you disable the check box, the other subprofiles that are enabled are still applied and selected.
