Nessus Agent 7.1.1 Release Notes - 8/14/2018

Note: If your upgrade path skips versions of Nessus Agent, Tenable recommends reviewing the release notes for all skipped versions. You may need to update your configurations because of features and functionality added in skipped versions.

What's new

The following new features are included with Nessus Agent 7.1.1. Customers are not required to update Nessus Manager to take advantage of these features:

  • Option to deploy plugins as part of the Agent Installation. Provides options to reference a plugin file during Agent installation to help reduce network strain when deploying Agents at scale.
  • Automatically update the hostname of an agent in when it changes. This feature allows the agent hostname to be updated automatically instead of requiring the agent to be unlinked and relinked.
  • Additional logging on local Agents. Provides better insight for administrators to help troubleshoot activity on the Agent.

Bug Fixes and Improvements

  • Fixed an issue where differential plugin updates were inoperable for customers and thereby defaulting to full plugin updates across all Agents.
  • Fixed an issue where Agent update versions were not being reflected correctly in the Windows registry.
  • Fixed an issue where silent mode was prompting user for input if the install directory was present during installation.
  • Fixed an issue where the Agent uninstallation did not delete all files and directories.
