Hosts do not appear in Scan - FS6.8 - Inconsistent results

I recently ran an Asset Discovery Scan - All default settings - and found 1368 hosts in the B class

Then set up an Full Vulnerability Scan - All Default Settings - same B class - it ran for 18 hours and reported

- the summary report indicate that only found 87 hosts

- in the Windows section - it indicate the authenticated to 237 hosts ?

- The full neetwork discovery section indicate that none of these devices are active?

I am on an Layer 3 network - No firewalls, No IDS, No Host IDS/Firewalls,  Windows Remote Registry and WMI is open, Windows and Shell credentals is in and work

Re: Hosts do not appear in Scan - FS6.8 - Inconsistent results

Hi Danie,

In general the MVM product works pretty consistently. We send packets out and if we get them back in a reasonable time span we record that event. I can't explain why you only detected 87 hosts in your full vulnerability scan or why it indicates you authenticated to 237 hosts.

To diagnose something like this you should open up a support case. If you post the case number after it is opened I'll keep and eye on this issue.
