All, I need some assistance with VM 7.0 and scanning for machines identifed as VMware ESX 4 or VMware ESX 4 (Service Console).
Test 1 Passed - I've run some tests last night on a few hosts and was able to Authenticate to VMware ESX 4 and get vernerability data.
Test 2 Failed - When I scanned VMware ESX 4 (Service Console) I was also able to authenticate, but no vulnerabilities were found.
Does any have a knowledge base for resolving the issue with scanning VMware ESX 4 (Service Console) ?
I am using a service account and not root. KB54752 states to use root as an option.
Thanks for any help on this one..

I'm not familiar enough about any differences between ESX 4 and ESX 4 (Service Console).
Can you turn on Verbose Shell Logging and re-try scanning the system. This will give much more detail of why it's failing in the daily log file.
1. Run Regedit
2. Navigate to:
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE]\SOFTWARE\Foundstone\Foundscan\Tweaks] (for 32-bit host) or
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE]\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Foundstone\Foundscan\Tweaks] (for 64-bit host)
** if the key "Tweaks" doesn't exist, create it. **
3. Add the following Value:
LogShell DWORD Value 'ff'
4. Rescan, and look in the ~Foundstone\Logs\LogFile.<date>.txt for any errors associated with the userID you specified in the scan.
If it's not obvious, open a Service Request, and attach the daily log.
I hope that helps!
