2.3 Testing a Disk Encryption Policy

To ensure that a Disk Encryption policy provides the results that you expect, we recommend that you test it on one or more devices before distributing it to all intended devices.

The best way to test a policy is to apply a Sandbox version of the policy to a test device. The following sections explain how to do this.

2.3.1 Designating Test Devices

You can designate any managed device in your ZENworks Management Zone as a test device. When a policy is assigned to a test device, the Sandbox version of the policy is applied, not the Published version. If no Sandbox version exists, the Published policy is applied.

To designate a managed device as a test device:

  1. In ZENworks Control Center, click Devices.

  2. In the Devices list, select the check box next to the target device, then click Action > Set as Test.

2.3.2 Assigning the Policy to Test Devices

  1. In ZENworks Control Center, click Policies to display the Policies page.

  2. Click the Disk Encryption policy you want to assign to test devices.

  3. Assign the policy to test devices:

    1. Click the Relationships tab.

    2. In the Device Assignments panel, click Add, browse for and select the test devices, then click OK.

    3. Select Device Only as the policy conflict resolution, then click Next.

    4. Select Enforce policies immediately on all assigned devices, then click Finish.

  4. Go to a test device and verify that the policy has been applied and is being enforced as expected.
