I'm using SolarWinds to work off Cat1-3 vulnerabilities on our Cisco devices, after I work on fixing a vulnerability I need to check to see if the fix worked so I have to go to the Compliance Policy Reports and click on the Update All button to get the fix checked, it seems I should be able to just do a update check on the specific device  and not all  devices. I'm having to do an update all check to check a fix on one device, is there a way I can just check the specific device with out out having to do a update all check for all devices?

Thank you,
Dave

Different versions of Solar Winds have very different looking menus, so I can't describe exactly how to do it.  But yes, there should be an option to run your query, either on "all devices" or "manually specify devices."
