What would you do?

I just started with a new company and they have an FS1000 Applicance that is now under my responsibilities. I believe it to be old and running Windows 2003 and has Foundscan version 6 on it. I'm fairly new to Foundstone and my knowledge is limited to Superscan used about 8 years ago.

It looks to have been actively scanning and collecting. Policy and process aside, what would you do in my situation? Just upgrade it, replace it, or something else?

Thanks!

Hi Mello,

From a *support* perspective, version 6.0 isn't supported any longer and regarding the appliance I suggest you refer to the following EOL site:

The older FS1000's are suitable for being simple scan engines in current version 7.0x, but for any hardcore scanning/DB/workhorse type stuff, you should plan to upgrade.

I hope that helps!
