Associating target devices with a baseline

The Associate Devices to a Baseline task enables you to designate the baseline to be used for verifying the compliance status of target devices.

  • NOTE: A device can only have one associated device configuration baseline. If you associate a second baseline to a device, the second baseline will become the only configuration baseline associated to the device.

To associate target devices to a baseline:

  1. Click Manage > Configurations .
  2. Perform one of the following:
    • In the Common Tasks pane, click Associate Devices to a Baseline.
    • In the Compliance by Baseline pane, either you right-click a baseline, and then click Associate Devices, or you click a baseline. The Associate Devices pop up wizard is displayed, and then click Associate Devices.
  3. The Associate Devices to a Baseline Wizard is displayed.
  4. On the Select Baseline page, select a server baseline, chassis baseline, or MX Chassis baseline from the list you want to associate with the target device, and then click Next.
    • NOTE: Only configuration baselines that you have either created or cloned are available for selection.
  5. On the Select Devices page, select the target devices listed based on the baseline selected in step 4 from the All Applicable Devices tree, and then click Finish. To view the updated compliance status of the devices, you must run the configuration inventory task. See Viewing compliance status of devices.
