Example 16  Sending Remote Assessments to a Remote Common Store

In this example, the administrator assesses the hostA remote system for compliance and sends its report to hostB for storage. All three hosts, the invoking host, hostA, and hostB are accessible over Secure Shell without an interactive prompt. hostA is configured with a default compliance profile. The user who is running the compliance assess command can be authenticated by RAD on hostA and hostB by using the FQDN format for host.

$ pfexec compliance assess -N hostA.dev.example.com  -s hostB.archive.example.com
