A registry baseline task lets you perform the registry baseline scan and gather data about the registry settings on a computer at a given time. The data that is gathered during this scan is saved in a registry baseline snapshot file (
.RBL) on the scanned computer.
You perform a registry baseline scan by creating and running a Registry Baseline task. Symantec recommends that you run each registry baseline task once to establish the baseline, and then re-run the registry baseline task only when the standard configuration changes.
You should not run the registry baseline task on a regular basis if the registry baseline task and the compliance task run on the same computer. If you do, then you continually overwrite the baseline snapshot file.
