I have scans running roughly all day. I see engines abort regularly, but seem to pick up fine on the next scheduled scan. What are common causes of scan engines aborting and solutions to help prevent them when possible?

I have been running "Web App Test" in "Metasploit Pro 4.14.2 - Update 2018061801" using a trial license running on Ubuntu 16.04 (in a VM). Most websites work exactly as expected but for some URLs (I am afraid I don't want to publically list my URL here, but it is a normal website running on Google App Engine) [*] [2018.06.27-15:49:59] Running Web App Test 1...

I have the integration between ADFS 3.0 and our On-Prem Nexpose console setup and working; however, I cannot seem to find the right syntax to keep the user from hitting the 'idpinitiatedsignon' page (where you select what site you are trying to sign into). With one of my other applications, I was able to put the 'Relaying Party' ID encoded within the IDP call behind 'LogintoRP' with no issues. However, trying to do this with Nexpose's Relay State, it does not seem to be working. Here is a quick 'sanitized' syntax of what I am doing: https://adfs.domain/adfs/ls/idpinitiatedsignon.aspx?LoginToRP=https://rapid7.com/nsc/console/<string> I have been reading that I may have to use the 'RelayState' parameter but I am not exactly sure what the values would be. Does anyone have any experience or guidance using ADFS 3.0 in this manner? Thank you

We created a policy template for Windows 2008R2 as described here (https://nexpose.help.rapid7.com/docs/working-with-policy-manager-results) then I scanned several Windows 2008R2 assets against the policy template. However, when I go to Reports and select a Policy Report and run it against the policy and assets scanned; the report only shows 1 asset. Does anyone know why I am missing the other assets? Or am I going about the reporting wrong with policy manager? thanks, andrew

I would like to get the list of hostname aliases (posted below the hardware address when viewing an asset) using SQL. Is this possible? Ultimately, I want to look for duplicate assets by aliases. There are times when I filter by hostname and get two results. One will show the hostname I looked for but with an outdated IP address (showing an old last scanned date). The other will show the correct IP for the asset I looked for but with the wrong hostname. When I click on the 2nd finding (correct IP, wrong hostname), I can see the correct hostname listed in the aliases section.

There are "cards" (graphs) on my Nexpose dashboard at exposure-analytics.insight.rapid7.com. Can I create my own cards (graphs)? Say by writing an sql query similar to what I do in Nexpose reports? This is suggested in the documentation, but I can't find details anywhere. Currently I run sql queries in Nexpose reports, export the results to Excel, and create Excel graphs. I'm wondering if I can do something similar directly on exposure-analytics.insight.rapid7.com and have the graphs appear on my dashboard.

Nexpose sql query: Are duplicate rows in fact_asset_scan_vulnerability_instance normal? Or an indication of some other problem? I'm also finding records in fact_asset_date for assets that are not in dim_asset, that is, the foreign asset_id key in fact_asset_date is not in dim_asset.

Hi, I see that Nexpose recommend to exclude scanning Load Balancers. Given the nature of common fault tolerant architectures in public cloud environments, load balancers are often deployed with an alias/cname attached for external connectivity. Question 1 What is the best approach to complete external scanning with a hosted scan engine of an AWS environment with: - Elastic Load Balancers - API Endpoints Question 2 I also noted that when using Dynamic Discovery, it will include instances without EIP addresses, but they will not appear in the asset list for the site configuration. Does this mean they wont actually be scanned? Any guidance is greatly appreciated. Thanks

I'm having problems getting a SQL query to give me one of the categories I need (asset tags). I'm trying to pull high level statistics for a simple monthly metrics report. Any suggestions? here is what I have so far dt.tag_name AS "Asset Category", COUNT(da.asset_id) AS "Asset ID", SUM(fa.vulnerabilities) AS "Total Vulnerabilities", SUM(fa.severe_vulnerabilities) AS "Severe Vulnerabilities", SUM(fa.moderate_vulnerabilities) AS "Moderate Vulnerabilities", SUM(fa.critical_vulnerabilities) AS "Critical Vulnerabilities" FROM dim_asset da JOIN fact_asset fa USING(asset_id) JOIN dim_tag_asset dta USING(asset_id) JOIN dim_tag as dt USING(tag_id) GROUP BY dt.tag_id, dt.tag_name ORDER BY dt.tag_name

Hello, I am trying to use Metasploit Community and Framework on Windows to scan my Metasploitable 2 VM on VMware. After installing metasploitable, I tried to scan with Metasploit Community. After adding the IP from Metasploitable (ifconfig) it shows no hosts discovered. I tried Zenmap on Windows and it came up with nothing for the VM. I added -Pn to Nmap and it found the VM host. I tried running Metasploit Community with the custom nmap -PN, and it found the host but no services or anything else. Metasplotiable is using NAT and Host Only. That's my 2 VMware adapters VMnet1 and VMnet8 using NAT and Host-Only. I tried Host-Only but still not working. I'm not sure if this is a problem for Metasploitable or VMware. I played with the Virtual Network Editor but don't know what I'm doing and kept default. Is there a way to set all my VM's to ping to each other? Please reply with help on getting Hosts on Metasploit Community and setting up Metasploitable 2. Thanks

Can Nexpose retrieve credentials through either a GET cmd or a direct connection to Password Manager Pro in order to conduct a credentialed scan? If this isn't possible...is it possible to import a batch of credentials into Nexpose?
