ScanMachine fails to read OS configuration files

Jump to solution

Hi all.

ScanMachine release 240 is generating errors upon os indentification, after the network scan. This became common in the latest releases of os*.txt (osprints.txt) configuration files, for example v7603. The errors do not occur with the base configuration files, which are v6825.

I've attached a screenshot of one of the errors.

Thanks in advance.

RD

PS - I'm unsure how this errors affect OS and Service identification.

Hi RD,

I've confirmed the updated ScanMachine (Version 250)  is now attached to the KB I linked above.

You shouldn't get those errors any more.

I hope that helps!

Hi RD,

I just tested with the latest OSPrints (7604) and reproduced an error... not sure if it's your error since I can't see anything attached to your post?

here's my error:

I'm tracking down the problem, and hopefully we can get it fixed in the next OSprints version.

Thanks!

hi RD,

Ok more news on this.  Apparently the errors are thrown because that version (240) of ScanMachine can't handle OS_WIN2012 or OS_WIN8.  OK'ing the dialog boxes (I had 8 of them) will allow it to continue *correctly*.  I was told the errors are "harmless", albeit annoying!

A new version of ScanMachine should be available in the next few days.  I will make sure it's attached to the KB:

https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB56421

Once it becomes available.
