I’m using the 21.04 build of the greenbone tools and working on adding in some of my ESXi hosts. One challenge I’m having is when scanning the hosts with a credentialed scan, the only entries coming up are basic log entries and this is on a host that does have a few security patches needed. I’ve tried:
- Scan host with SSH credential tested to be able to login via SSH to ESXI host using Full & Fast
- Scan host with ESXi Credentials tested to be able to login to host admin page using Full & Fast
- Scan host using settings above with ESXI Shell Enabled on ESXi host using Full & Fast
- Scan host using settings above with ESXi Shell Disabled on ESXI host using Full & Fast
None of these scans have been able to properly identify the OS running on the device. My current feeds are NVT: current; SCAP: 2 days; CERT: current; GVM_DATA: 17 days.
Could someone share their scan config for ESXi hosts? I’m sure it’s something easy I’m missing.
