Hi!, in this opportunity we will see how to solve a very common issue with the compliance policy.
Explanation of the Issue
The compliance policy for Windows Desktops was configured to enterprise devices when the firewall was disabled. However, users have reported that their Windows 10 endpoints were enterprise wiped even when the firewall was enabled.
After consulting the Workspace ONE administrator who participated in the initial Workspace ONE solution deployment, you collected the following information:
• The company wants to monitor the firewall status and the encryption status of the enrolled Windows 10 endpoints:
– If the firewall status of the Windows 10 endpoint is poor, the company wants to first inform the user and the administrator, then issue an enterprise wipe after 5 days.
– If the encryption status of the Windows 10 endpoint is not encrypted, the company then wants to push an encryption profile to enforce Windows disk encryption.
• When the compliance policy was first created, both compliance rules were configured in the same compliance policy.
After examining the Windows 10 endpoint, the Devices Dashboard, and the compliance policy, you found the following causes to the compliance policy issue:
• Both compliance rules are configured in the same compliance policy.
VMware best practice recommends that each compliance rule is separate. This ensures that you get the best compliance check results and simplifies troubleshooting.
