SmartAnalysis ESXi Configuration Files and Patches


#1

After installing the appliance, enabling the embedded SmartProxy, and adding a vCenter provider I am unable to return the files specified from the default host analysis profile. The patches do not display as well. I have tried adding the credentials directly to the host, modifying scan_via_host, enabling debug logging, and reviewing host.rb. The SmartState Analysis completed successfully, but it looks like the patch and file checks are never performed on ESXi hosts. Is there a fix for this? I also reviewed manageiq talk and github bug fixes. I cannot seem to find anything regarding this.

This is important to me, because it is how I intended to review compliance. As an example, reviewing /etc/ntp.conf to ensure the correct ntp server is there.
