Unlink Nessus Scanner

You can unlink your Tenable Nessus scanner from a manager so that you can relink it to another manager.

Note: You cannot link to Tenable Security Center from the user interface after initial installation. If your scanner is already linked to Tenable Security Center, you can unlink and then link the scanner to Tenable Vulnerability Management or Tenable Nessus Manager, but you cannot relink to Tenable Security Center from the interface.

To unlink a Tenable Nessus scanner from a manager:

  1. In the Tenable Nessus scanner you want to unlink, in the top navigation bar, click Settings.

    The About page appears.

  2. In the left navigation bar, click Remote Link.

    The Remote Link page appears.

  3. Switch the toggle to Off.
  4. Click Save.

    Tenable Nessus unlinks from the manager.

What to do next

  • If you unlinked Tenable Nessus from Tenable Security Center, delete the scanner from Tenable Security Center.
