The Hardening and Site Specific columns are there to help show you which settings are actual hardening settings and which are clearly settings that VMware can’t necessarily provide default values for. “Site Specific” setting meaning it’s something VMware can’t set for you. An example would be the IP Address for your NTP server.

“Audit Setting” column. This should guide you towards which settings are those that require you to check that the default value may have changed.
