Move Assets to Another Network

Required Tenable Vulnerability Management User Role: Scan Operator, Standard, Scan Manager, or Administrator

Tenable Vulnerability Management automatically assigns scanned assets to a network based on the scanner's network ID. However, you may need to manually move assets to another network in some scenarios. For example, you might have multiple assets with the same IP address which belong on different subnets so they can be identified as separate entities.

You can move assets to another network from the Assets workbench. If you first need to create the network to move assets to, see Create a Network.

Tip: You can also move assets to a network via the Settings section.

When you move assets, be sure to move the scanner as well as the asset. Otherwise, the scanner will create the same asset again. For more information, see Add a Scanner to a Network.

Note: Move assets before you run scans on a new network. If you move assets to a network where scans have already run, Tenable Vulnerability Management may create duplicate records that count against your license.

Tip: On the Assets workbench, you can move host assets, cloud resources, or web applications to another network. You cannot move domain inventory assets.

To move assets to another network:

  1. In the upper-left corner, click the Menu button.

    The left navigation plane appears.

  2. In the left navigation plane and the Explore section, click Assets.

    The Assets workbench appears with the Hosts tile active and your assets shown in a table view.

  3. (Optional) Refine the table data. For more information, see Filter Findings or Assets.

  4. Select the check boxes for the asset or assets you want to move.

    The action bar appears at the top of the table.

  5. In the action bar, select Move.

    A dialog appears.

  6. In the dialog, under Choose a New Destination Network, select the network you want to move the assets to.

  7. Click Move.

    The assets are moved to the destination network. Depending on the number of assets selected, it may take some time for Tenable Vulnerability Management to complete the move.
