About the templates

Several modules use templates to store authorized agent and object settings. Differences between the current agent and object settings and the template are reported when the module is run.

For example, the File Attributes module uses templates to validate current file settings. The OS Patches module uses templates to verify the presence of operating system patches. The Registry module uses templates to confirm registry key values.

You can accept a new agent setting by updating the template, or you can fix the problem and then rerun the module or policy.

Template files reside on the Symantec ESM manager computers.
