Scheduling Integrity Checking in Task Manager

The Integrity Check Report task can be used to perform integrity checking on a set of configuration files at a designated time interval

Integrity Check Task

  1. Select Admin > Task Manager. Click the “New Task” button and select the “Integrity Check” task.

  2. Enter a name for the task and click “Next”.

  3. Select the “Integrity Check Options” tab. To schedule the task for the offline network, select “Use off-line network” and specify the specification file name and the directory containing the config files.
