Free Compliance Checker for vSphere Test Drive

The free Compliance Checker for vSphere checks your environment against the security guidelines from the vSphere 4.0 Hardening Guide.

It checks up to 5 ESX/ESXi host for free.  Just enter your vCenter server name or the IP address of an individual ESX/ESXi host and it performs the assessment.  If you have more than 5 ESX/ESXi hosts in your environment the compliance checker only performs the assessment on the first 5.

The Compliance Checker generates a nice HTML report that displays the compliance rule that was checked and whether the host passed or failed the check according to best practices.

Each rule references a code from the Hardening Guide so that you can look up the recommendations and remediation steps.

Nice free utility, very useful in checking small (<5 host) environments for security hardening best practices.
