Inventory policies provide many options for gathering inventory. You can configure predefined inventory policies or the new policies that you create. If you want to configure predefined policies to meet your needs, Symantec recommends that you clone an original predefined policy and then configure the copy.
In the upper left of an inventory policy page, you can click the clipboard icon to open the policy menu. From the menu, you can perform the following operations on the policy: open, clone, rename, move, export, and so on.
You can click the name of the policy and edit it. For a new policy, the default name is New Inventory Policy.
You can click the description of the policy and edit it. For a new policy, the default description is Add description.
The policy status indicates whether the policy is turned on or off. If the policy clipboard icon is gray, and the colored circle is red, the policy is off. If the policy clipboard icon and the colored circle are green, the policy is on.
To turn on the policy , at the upper right of the page, click the colored circle, click On, and then click Save changes.
