Pre Scan Authentication testing

I'm curious to see what others do to test authentication to targets prior to "full" scan execution.

The value in doing this of course is to make sure you can reach the hosts first time around(and not have to schedule another scan/change window to execute to hit those which you couldnt authenticate to, and also to avoid account lockouts.


Does anyone use the mcafee scanner to do this or, do you use batches or other utilities?
