Start-SCComplianceScan

Starts a compliance scan of a managed computer or host cluster.

Syntax

Parameter Set: VMHostCluster
Start-SCComplianceScan -VMHostCluster <HostCluster> [-Baseline <Baseline> ] [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]

Parameter Set: VMMManagedComputer
Start-SCComplianceScan -VMMManagedComputer <VMMManagedComputer> [-Baseline <Baseline> ] [-JobVariable <String> ] [-PROTipID <Guid> ] [-RunAsynchronously] [-VMMServer <ServerConnection> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Start-SCComplianceScan cmdlet starts a compliance scan of a managed computer or host cluster. During a compliance scan, the specified managed computer or host cluster is compared against assigned baselines, and the resulting compliance state is returned.

The input type is the type of the objects that you can pipe to the cmdlet.

Outputs

The output type is the type of the objects that the cmdlet emits.

  • ComplianceStatus
  • VMHostCluster

Examples

Example 1: Scan a host against a given baseline

The first command gets the host object named VMHost01, and then stores the object in the $VMHost variable.

The second command gets the compliance status object for the host stored in $VMHost01, and then stores the object in the $Compliance variable.

The next three lines use a Foreach statement to loop through the baseline compliance status objects for the host. If the baseline named Security Baseline is found, then the fifth command stores it in the $Baseline variable. For information about the Windows PowerShellForeach statement, type Get-Help about_Foreach.

The last command starts the compliance scan on the host, using the baseline stored in $Baseline, which in this example is Security Baseline.


PS C:\> $VMHost = Get-SCVMHost -ComputerName "VMHost01"
PS C:\> $Compliance = Get-SCComplianceStatus -VMMManagedComputer $VMHost.ManagedComputer
PS C:\> Foreach($bsc in $Compliance.BaselineLevelComplianceStatus)` 
PS C:\> {if ($bsc.Baseline.Name -eq "Security Baseline")`
PS C:\> {$Baseline = $bsc.Baseline; break}}
PS C:\> Start-SCComplianceScan -VMMManagedComputer $VMHost.ManagedComputer -Baseline $Baseline
