Where to launch Vulnerability Scanner

You can launch Vulnerability Scanner on the Security Server or on any client in the network. The client should not be running Terminal Server.

Target client

  • The target client must not have Security Server installed. Vulnerability Scanner does not install the Security Agent on a client already running the Security Server.

  • Users must use an administrator account to log on to the client.


    If the target client runs Windows 7, enable the built-in administrator account first. Windows 7 disables the built-in administrator account by default. For more information, refer to the Microsoft support site (

There are several ways to run vulnerability scans.
