Import firmware compliance policy

XClarity Administrator compliance policies contained in the LXCA_<date>.zip archive downloaded from the ThinkAgile SXM Updates Repository have a name in the following format for easy recognition of the Best Recipe for which they are intended:

<Platform>Policy_SXMBRyyyy

where <Platform> is either “Purley” or “Broadwell” and yyyy is the ThinkAgile SXM Best Recipe version.

To import the XClarity Administrator firmware compliance policy, follow these steps:

  1. At the top menu of the XClarity Administrator browser interface, select Provisioning > Compliance Policies. Similar to the firmware repository, there may or may not be firmware update policies already shown. This list will grow over time as additional policies are added for new Best Recipes. In the example screenshot below, you see three previous policies for Best Recipes SXMBR1903, SXMBR1905, and SXMBR1910 for the Purley platform. We will continue with this example, preparing XClarity Administrator for Best Recipe SXMBR2002 for the Purley platform.

  2. Click the Import icon ( ) and then click Select Files….
  3. Navigate to D:\Lenovo\LXCA, select the file titled <Platform>Policy_SXMBRyyyy.xml, and then click Import. As stated previously, the “<Platform>” portion of the file name is either “Broadwell” or “Purley” depending on your solution, and the “yyyy” portion of the file name reflects the ThinkAgile SXM Best Recipe version for which the policy file was created. Once the policy is imported, it is shown on the Firmware Updates: Compliance Policies page.
