I am trying to do an authenticated scan on Cisco Nexus switches. When I test creds individually using the test creds feature in the manage credentials page, authentication is fine. However, when I run a discovery scan with those same creds and the same scan engines, authentication fails. This is not an issue in non-nexus assets. Anyone seen this issue or have any pointers?
Update: it seems that nexus devices don’t have privilegedexec mode. (how are things configured then?)
when i scanned without elevation auth was successful. So while insightvm was reporting auth failed, it was the elevation to privileged exec that failed. initial login was successful.
Question now is - how can i set the site to use the no-elevation-creds while other creds are also configured for that site?
