Deleting a suppression

A suppression is an attribute of a security policy. To remove a suppression, you must access the suppression from the policies node and delete it.

Removing the suppression from a Security report message does not cause Symantec ESM to automatically re-evaluate a computer's security. To have Symantec ESM reevaluate a computer's security status, you must repeat the policy run.
