In this tutorial, I walk you through running scans, specifically manual and ad hoc scans on size.
I will also show you pausing, resuming and stopping them as well as the effects of each one of these actions.
Generally, you will want to schedule all of your scans and have them run on a regular basis. However, manual skins are very useful if you want to skin a particular asset outside of the normal window to check for critical vulnerabilities or verify that patch was installed.
Now, the easiest way to run a manual skin is right from the home tab.
If you go down to the site listing and find the site that contains all the assets that you'd like to scan,
go across and click on the new manual skin. But
a dialog window is gonna pop up.
Asked me to specify which assets you'd like to scan.
You can scan all the assets within the site, or you can choose certain assets you like to skin.
You can specify any asset you want, as long as they already included in the device listing for the site.
For the purpose of this, I'm just gonna go ahead and run a manual scan on all of the assets in the site.
Also note that manual scans will not own any skin windows or maximum duration settings you may have in the site configuration.
To start the scan, just click on the start now button.
Once the scan has started, it will bring you to the scan status. Window.
Here will be one of the places where you contract the progress you composite, resume it or stop it at any time.
While next pose is running the scan each time it discovers an asset, it will appear in the device. Listening pain below.
Exposed display scan results from a local engine while the scan is in progress, but it is not. Store these results in the database until it successfully completes the scan or the scan has been stopped
by default. Next was on Lee Display Scan results from distribute engines when the scan is completed have stopped.
So if you running a scan using the remote engine,
you'll just have a message here saying that the skin has been dispatched
to the remote engine and you'll see the results once it's completed.
While we're waiting for the results, I'll show you how to make that change to allow for the incremental results from the remote engines.
Then I'll show you the different ways to navigate back to this page.
So to make the setting change, click on the administration town,
then go down to where it says next World Security console and click on Manage.
Once here, click on the scan engine Stan,
and along the bottom, you'll see the incremental scan results settings.
The default setting only allows incremental scan results from just the local scan engine.
As you can see, I chose to retrieve incremental scan results from the local and remote scan engines,
the only negative here.
