Viewing Scan Results

 

Scan results are displayed immediately following a successful scan. They are also available when you select a previous scan from the Recent Scans list.

When displaying scan results the program divides the right-side of the window into three smaller panes. The upper-left pane lists the type of information that is available, the upper-right pane displays machine and policy check information based on the item selected in the upper-left pane, and the bottom pane displays detailed information about the item selected in the upper-right pane. The following figure illustrates the scan results format:

This pane provides a summary of all the scans currently contained in the Recent Scans list. It organizes the scan information four ways— by account information, by domains, by machines groups, and by individual scans

  • Accounts: Provides detailed information about the local user accounts identified on each machine that has been scanned by the program. See Enabling and Disabling Account Scanning for more information.

  • Domains: Expanding this tree enables you to view the most recent scan information for the domains in your network.

  • Machine Groups: Expanding this tree enables you to view the most recent scan information for your machine groups.

  • Scans: Expanding this tree enables you to view information about individual scans.

 

Information within the Domains, Machine Groups, and Scans trees is broken down into five categories:

 

  • Policy Check Summary: Enables you to view information about every policy check identified within a particular domain, machine group, or scan. See Scan Results: Policy Check Summary for details.

  • Account Summary: Enables you to view information about every local user account identified within a particular domain, machine group, or scan. See Scan Results: Account Summary for details.

  • Share Summary: Enables you to view information about every share identified within a particular domain, machine group, or scan. See Scan Results: Share Summary for details.

  • Group Membership Summary: Enables you to view information about every group identified within a particular domain, machine group, or scan. See Scan Results: Group Membership Summary for details.

  • Machine Summary: Enables you to view information about every machine identified within a particular domain, machine group, or scan. See Scan Results: Machine Summary for details.

This is another summary pane.  Depending on what is selected in the upper-left pane, it will display summary information about either machines or policy checks. Click on a column heading to sort the table by that information.

 

Located just above this pane are two drop-down boxes you can use to filter the information presented within the pane.  FilterByRegFramework.gif     FilterByRegControl.gif

This pane displays detailed information about the machine selected in the upper-right pane. A table at the bottom of this pane shows a history of the actions that have been performed on the machine.

 

In addition, this pane contains the following links:

  • Add/Edit Comment: Enables you to provide a comment about the selected machine. The comment is saved and displayed for all future scans and enforcements involving the machine.

  • Summary Report: Displays the Scan Machine Policy Compliance report for the machine currently selected in the upper-right pane.

  • Export Changes: Exports to an XML file a list of changes that have been made to this machine.

  • Export Out of Policy Checks: Exports to an XML file the list of checks that are not in compliance on this machine.
