Environment

Secure Configuration Manager 6.2.0.1

Situation

An enhancement has been made in Secure Configuration Manager 6.2.0.1 so that you can configure managed groups to inherit the exceptions of their immediate parent group.  For example, you want to add two child groups, Texas and Utah, to the US Finance group.  The endpoints within the child groups can now have the same exceptions that you previously applied to endpoints in US Finance.

Resolution

Download and apply NetIQ Secure Configuration Manager 6.2 Patch Update 1 then instead of manually creating each exception you can complete the following steps:

1. In the Windows Explorer go to Program files (x86)\NetIQ\Secure Configuration Manager\Core Services\bin
2. Double click on config.bat to launch the configuration utility in Advanced mode
3. Select the Advanced tab
4. Set the value to True in the field for gladiator/exception/parent/enabled
5. Restart the NetIQ Core Services service

Cause

An enhancement was made in order to allow managed groups to inherit the exceptions of their immediate parent group
