Contents of the patch
This patch consists of the following improvements:
Automatic imports of scan data
Threat Director now lets you set up a scanner connection so you can import vulnerability scans automatically, without any need for exporting the scans from vendor tools or manually importing the scans into BladeLogic Portal. You can schedule how often scan results are imported. You can select particular scans to import, and you can also establish filters that limit the scan data that is actually imported from all scan results being imported.
Currently, scanner connections are only possible with the Tenable Security Center. Tenable is the creator of the Nessus Vulnerability Scanner.
For more information, see Setting up a scanner connection. For a description of how to import scan results automatically and an accompanying video, see Walkthrough for Threat Director: Automatically importing vulnerability scan data.
New installer and upgrade option
To accommodate automatic scan imports, the installation and upgrade wizards now include an option that lets you specify a required ID. The new option is available for both BMC Server Automation and BMC Network Automation. The new option is highlighted below.
New prerequisite for upgrades
Before you can perform an upgrade, you must manually edit a setting for Unicode support in an XML file. For more information, see Upgrading.
