VMware offline scanning is supported only for virtual machines with Windows installed as the guest operating system.
For Vulnerability Management (formerly Retina) 651 and UVM embedded scanners, database scanning works only for Microsoft SQL Server and Oracle databases. MySQL database scanning is not supported.
Authentication requirements for custom audits are not properly defined.
After the Engine service has stopped, the raw packet driver continues to run.
When using the Local Scan Service option, SCAP scan jobs running against Red Hat targets could take several minutes to enter a paused or scan-restricted state.
Features that use the Microsoft .NET framework - including SCAP support, the audit modification and customization dialogs, PowerShell integration, reporting, and the guided user interface - require Microsoft .NET 4.5.2 or higher.
Network Security Scanner 6.4.0 and higher install the Microsoft Universal C runtime.
Network Security Scanner 6.4.0 and higher install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2017 x86 runtimes.
Network Security Scanner 6.0.1 and higher install the Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 x86 runtimes.
To scan offline VMware virtual machines without having to power them on prior to scanning, you must have BeyondInsight installed.
VMware offline scanning requires VMware's Virtual Disk Development Kit (VDDK). Please see KB001042 for directions for obtaining and installing the VMware VDDK (http://kb.beyondtrust.com/home/viewkb/KB001042).
Scanning of MySQL databases depends upon the prior installation of an ODBC driver; Connector/ODBC 5.1 or higher is recommended.
Database scanning will yield the best results with the most powerful users; for MySQL, this will be the 'root' user; for Oracle, it will be the 'sys' user acting 'AS SYSDBA'.
Scanning of Amazon Web Services instances requires BeyondInsight.
