Feed Settings Section

The Feed Settings section allows you to update the Activation Code, plugins, perform offline updates, and configure a custom plugin feed host. The Activation Code only needs to be updated when it expires.

The Offline Update allows a user with administrative privileges to manually update the plugins when the NNM host cannot connect to the Internet. After downloading the plugin update archive from Tenable, click Choose File and select the archive tarball to upload. Click the Upload Archive button to send the file to the NNM host, and click the Upload Archive button again to update the plugins. If a new client is part of the update, you must refresh the web browser to see the updated client.

The Custom Plugin Feed host is an alternate feed host. These are typically hosted on a local network to provide custom NNM plugins.

When running Standalone NNM or NNM in High Performance mode as Managed by SecurityCenter or Managed by, you must enter an Activation Code before clicking the Update button. The button schedules a plugin update when NNM is running in Standalone mode. Additionally, when registering NNM in Offline mode, you need the Activation Code to obtain the Activation Key.
