About this task

Complete the following steps to view the check Fixlets in the HCL BigFix Console after subscribing and gathering the site content.


  1. From the Security Configuration domain, click All Security Configuration > Sites > External Sites.
  2. Expand a checklist.
  3. Click Fixlets and Tasks. The Fixlets and Tasks section opens.
  4. Click one of the Fixlets displayed in the list.
    The Fixlet opens with the following tabs: Description, Details, Applicable Computers, and Action History.
  5. Click the Description tab to view the text that describes the Fixlet.

    The Fixlet is applicable to a subset of endpoints on your network. The size of that subset is shown in the Applicable Computers tab.

    A Fixlet typically has a description of the check appended with the rationale and guidelines of the actions for remediation. If the Fixlet is relevant, you must take an action listed in the Remediation section of the description to remediate the noncompliance. You can also access the associated analysis from the description.
    Note: The Check ID refers to the Source ID of the Fixlet.
  6. If you are using any of the checklists for AIX 7, MS SQL 2008, MS SQL 2012, MS IIS 7, RHEL 5, RHEL 6, RHEL 7, Solaris 10, or Solaris 11, run the Environment Setup Task.
    Note: Run the Environment Setup Task periodically to gather the latest results. For more information about this task, see Configuring endpoints.
