Viewing result of the last scan

You can view the result of the last asset discovery scan to check the status of individual protocols. You can also check the log for each device.

To view the scan result

  1. Navigate to Asset Discovery > Scanners > (Your scanner) > Module Configuration.

  2. Select the Device List tab.
    The following information is displayed about the last scan:
     

    ParameterDescription
    StatusThese fields display the current scan status of the respective target. If the target cannot be scanned, that is, it is not contactable, the status displays Unreachable.
    Device NameThe fields of this column display the names of the scan targets.
    IP AddressThe IP address of the device in its dotted version, such as 194.50.68.255.
    Operating System NameName The name of the operating system installed on the discovered device.
    NMAPOSThe field indicates the status of operating system detection via Network Mapper (NMAP). (See the legend at the bottom of the table for status information.)
    SSH

    The field indicates the status of Secure Shell (SSH) credential validation. (See the legend at the bottom of the table for status information.)

    If the SSH credentials are valid, SSH is used to detect operating system, software, and hardware.

    If the credential validation fails, the SSHOS, SSHSW, and SSHHW tests are not run and the corresponding columns remain empty.

    SMB

    SMB The field indicates the status of Server Message Block (SMB) credential validation. (See the legend at the bottom of the table for status information.)

    If the SMB credentials are valid, SMB is used to detect operating system and software.

    If the credential validation fails, the SMBOS and SMBSW tests are not run and the corresponding columns remain empty.

    WMI

    WMI The field indicates the status of Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) credential validation. (See the legend at the bottom of the table for status information.)

    If the credentials are valid, WMI is used to detect operating system, software, and hardware.

    If the credential validation fails, the WMIOS, WMISW, and WMIHW tests are not run and the corresponding columns remain empty.

    SNMP

    SNMP The field indicates the status of Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) credential validation. (See the legend at the bottom of the table for status information.)

    If the SNMP credentials are valid, SNMP is used to detect operating system, hardware, and network connectivity.

    If the credential validation fails, the SNMPOS, SNMPHW, and SNMPCON tests are not run and the corresponding columns remain empty.

    SSHOSSSHOS The field indicates the status of operating system detection via SSH. (See the legend at the bottom of the table for status information.)
    SMBOSSMBOS The field indicates the status of operating system detection via SMB. (See the legend at the bottom of the table for status information.)
    WMIOSWMIOS The field indicates the status of operating system detection via WMI. (See the legend at the bottom of the table for status information.)
    SNMPOSSNMPOS The field indicates the status of oeprating system detection via SNMP. (See the legend at the bottom of the table for status information.)
    SSHSWSSHSW The field indicates the status of software detection via SSH. (See the legend at the bottom of the table for status information.)
    SMBSWSMBSW The field indicates the status of software detection via SMB. (See the legend at the bottom of the table for status information.)
    WMISWWMISW The field indicates the status of software detection via WMI. (See the legend at the bottom of the table for status information.)
    SSHHWSSHHW The field indicates the status of hardware detection via SSH. (See the legend at the bottom of the table for status information.)
    WMIHWWMIHW The field indicates the status of hardware detection via WMI. (See the legend at the bottom of the table for status information.)
    SNMPHWSNMPHW The field indicates the status of hardware detection via SNMP. (See the legend at the bottom of the table for status information.)
    SNMPCONSNMPCON The field indicates the status of network connectivity detection via SNMP. (See the legend at the bottom of the table for status information.)
    DetailThis field displays the latest status of the scan.
    Discovery TimeThis column displays the date and time at which the individual devices were discovered for the first time.
    Start TimeThe date and time at which the scanning session was started on the target client.
    End TimeThe date and time at which the session finished.
    Duration (Sec)The the total time the session needed to execute in the regular time format hh:mm:ss.
    MAC AddressThe MAC, that is, the hardware address of the currently discovered device.

    Legends:

    • Yellow (): Operation in progress
    • Red (): Operation failed
    • Green (): Operation successful
    • (Empty cell): Operation not performed as the protocol credentials are either not supplied or are invalid.

To view scan log

  • Right click the row for which you want to view the log and select Display Log .
    The logged entries for the selected row is displayed.
