I have a scan task that runs on all my clients including my VM servers I set to time out after 3 hours. My VM servers need more time. What did you guys do? I know I can set scan longer or more the VM to a sub group. Just want to hear other ideas.
You pretty much are correct, just put them in a different group and give their scan task more time. OR, you can create a tag, tag them with it, then create a new scan task to scan only those systems with that tag. In that scan task, you can give them more time.
You could alternatively give them a new task too and increase the processor priority and give the scanner more resources and maybe the scan will complete sooner. Just a few ideas.
