    BladeLogic Server Automation Compliance rules for directory symbolic links

    Steven Alexson

      BSA Version 8.5 SP1

       

      I am attempting to build compliance rules to check symbolic links on Linux servers. The symbolic links point to directories, not individual files. I have added the appropriate part (the directories). I have built the rules using the "Directory.Symbolic Link" properties. When I run a test of the job, the rule fail because the check "Directory.Symbolic Link = True" fails. In the test results, BladeLogic shows a value of False for this test, though I have verified that the target directory is in fact a symbolic link.

       

      Am I missing something, or is BladeLogic not functioning as it should?

       

      Here are screenshots of my attempt:
