Launch a Scan

If one or more assets are selected and a Nessus scanner is linked to Industrial Security, you can launch an active scan of the selected assets.

To launch a scan:

  1. From the Actions drop-down, select Launch a Scan.
  2. In the Launch Active Scan box, do one of the following:
    • If you want to scan an IT device and a Nessus scanner is linked to Industrial Security, from the Nessus Scanner drop-down, select the Nessus Scanner you want to use to scan the selected assets.

      Tip: Select the assets you want to scan on the Assets page.

    • If you want to scan an OT device, or another device on which you would not run a Nessus scan, from the Nessus Scanner drop-down, select Backplane Scan.

      Note: If you know the IP address of an OT device, you can run a Backplane scan to get information about the device without waiting for NNM to discover it.

      1. In the Targets box, type the IP address of the target you want to scan.
  3. Click Launch.
