Providing A Comment Before Changing A Policy

 

Depending on how VMware vCenter Protect - Configuration Management is configured, you may be required to provide a comment before changing an existing policy. This serves a couple of purposes.

 

 

Note: For details on how to require comments and to view comments that have been made, see Requiring Policy Change and Enforcement Comments.

 

If you are required to provide a comment, a dialog similar to the following will appear when you attempt to save your policy change.

Simply type your comment and then click OK. Your policy change will not be saved if you do not provide a comment.

 

If you want to re-configure VMware vCenter Protect - Configuration Management so that comments are not required, enable the Do not require comment check box and then click OK. This will apply to all future change attempts, not just this change. If you accidentally enable this option, it can be reconfigured by selecting Tools > Options from the main menu and then selecting the Change Control tab.
