    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

          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.
