Testing a security policy

Symantec recommends that you test a policy before you use it in a production environment.

See Performing tasks that are common to all security policies.

To test a policy

  1. Create a group to use for policy testing.

  2. Assign the test policy to the test group.

  3. Identify three or four managed computers to use for policy testing.

    If necessary, install the client software on the computers. Install the computers as managed computers.

  4. Move the test computers to the test group.

  5. Exercise the test computers to verify that they operate correctly.
