VMware vCenter Configuration Manager Free Compliance Checkers – Installation & Configuration

Free Compliance Checkers are based on VMware vCenter Configuration Manager and can be used to manage configuration compliance requirements in your environment . Each free checker includes compliance assessment for a single standard and can only assess a small number of hosts or VMs (depending on checker) at the same time. To use any of the available checkers simply download the selected checker to a Windows desktop.

The intuitive web-based interface requires little or no learning curve. Administrators simply point the checker at a target environment (hosts or specific VMs depending on the checker downloaded) and execute a compliance assessment request. The resultant compliance report provides a detailed rule by rule indication of pass or failure. Where compliance problems are found users are directed to a detailed knowledge base for an explanation of the rule violated and advice on remediation.

The following free compliance checkers are available for download:

  • vSphere 4.1 VMware Hardening Guidelines Checker
  • vSphere 4.0 VMware Hardening Guidelines Checker
  • PCI 2.0 Compliance Guidelines Checker
