Exporting Policy Changes


VMware vCenter Protect - Configuration Management enables you to export to an XML file a list of all changes that have ever been made to your custom policies. This provides a number of benefits:

To export policy changes

  1. Select Tools > Export Policy Changes.

The Select a Policy dialog is displayed. Only custom policies are displayed because the two predefined baseline policies (Recommended Baseline and NIST/FISMA Baseline) cannot be modified and will never have policy changes to report. For example:


  1. Enable the check box of the policy whose changes you want to view.

You can only select one policy.

  1. Click OK.

The Export Policy Changes To dialog is displayed.


  1. Browse to the directory you want to save the file to, provide a unique file name, and then click Save.

You can view the file using any available XML editor.
