    OEM Security Policy Violation

    602725
      Hi,

      There are thousands of policy violation in my OEM page. Some are very old. I would like to clear those violations. Can somebody help me out.
      Also, what is the difference between suppressing the violations and clearing them.

      Can a script be written to clear the violations on a regular basis ??

      Help would be much appreciated.

          Hello,

          From console main page click on policy violations

          All Policy Violations X

          then click on manage policy violaitons ---> Hit search button and it will bring all the policies and then you can ignore (last column) them.

          Regards

            Hi,

            Ignoring them will not cause the violations to be raised again next time when an threshold is reached, which is not what I want...

            I would just like to clear the old violations without actually affecting the policy !!!

            Also, which page sould i navigate to..target home page or the Grid control Home page.

            Because in both the pages I do not find the link u mentioned..

              Hello,

              Do you have grid or EM dbconsole? What's your oracle version? Look for manage policy violation (under policy) and you should be able figure it out how would you want set them up.

                I have Grid Control...my oracle version is 10.2.0.4..

                I followed the steps..

                Target home page > Policy violations > Current > Violation Count

                Clicked the link which took me to "policy violation details"

                This is what i have learnt sofar...It seems we can manually clear the policy violation logs which are older enough, rahter than waiting for the Default Evaluation to take place....

                I would like to know how it could be done...

                      Hi,
                      First of all I suppose you are mixing up "Security Policy Violations" with "Targets Alerts".
                      "Security Policy Violations" does not have thresholds - there is or there is not violation. In this case you have two options:
                      1. Disable the policy so it is not checked
                      2. Fix the root of the violation
                      Read also about Monitoring Templates (in Setup).
                      Regards
