Viewing BIOS Validations

 

On its dashboard, the Device Analysis task displays the status and results of the BIOS validations for all managed devices. Junos Space Service Now compares the BIOS images received from different devices in a day and submits only the unique BIOS images to JSS for creating BIOS Validation cases; that is, if the same BIOS image is received from thousand managed devices in a day, thousand different incidents are created on Service Now, but only the unique BIOS image is submitted to JSS and one case is created for BIOS validation. If two unique BIOS images are received from managed devices in a day, the two unique images are submitted to JSS and two cases for BIOS validation are created. A maximum of hundred BIOS Health Check cases can be submitted to JSS from an organization in any given day.

To view the status of BIOS validation, on the Service Now navigation tree, select Service Central > Device Analysis > BIOS Validations. The BIOS Validations page appears.

Table 1 lists the information displayed by the BIOS validations report.
