You can go https://sort.symantec.com/support/help and search for "Risk analysis".

Running a Risk Assessment report

Before you begin this procedure, start the data collector.

To run a Risk Assessment report

  1. On the Main Menu, select your Symantec enterprise product family.
  2. On the What task do you want to accomplish? menu, select option 2.
  3. On the On which systems do you want to run and report? select your system(s).

    To gather information on multiple systems, select option 2, and do the following:

    • At the user name prompt, enter one or more system names separated by spaces, or enter the full-qualified path to a file containing a list of system names.

    • At the create a default encryption key file prompt, do one of the following:

      • Enter n. At the path prompt, specify the absolute path to the file containing the encryption key.

      • Enter y. At the encryption key prompt, enter an encryption key of at least five characters.

  4. At the upload prompt, specify whether you want to upload the report to SORT. Do one of the following:
    • If you don't want to upload the report:

      • Enter n. You can still upload the report later.

      • Press Return to continue. This displays the Main Menu, where you can choose another task.

    • Upload the report.
