Note: If you have any questions on this topic please start a new thread for each question and link back to this topic so that it can be updated accordingly.

From time to time questions are asked why scans with a self-created scan config / a
copy of the empty scan config are not showing any results.

If you’re creating a new scan config please make sure that you have
added the following two VTs from the Port scanners family to your
scan config:

Nmap (NASL wrapper) - OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.14259
Ping Host - OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.100315

If you want to add hostnames to your scan report the following additional VT for GVM < 10 from the Service detection Family is required:

Host Details - OID: 1.3.6.1.4.1.25623.1.0.103997
