Just wondering if anyone has had success in using Asset Discovery in a large environment?
I have around 19k network points that need to be scanned and I’m struggling to get it to work.
Firstly, one of the biggest problems is that neither the wizard nor the fixlets allow for that many entries to be added as they use parameters to pass across into the nmap command via a batch file.
In honesty, this isn’t the nicest way to do scanning in general with nmap, it’s probably better to create a text file with just the networks inside it and have the command call that text file (as per nmap’s own documentation).
Anyway, I digress…
If anyone has a cleaner / nicer version of the scanner fixlets or some best use advice for this number of network points then I’d love to see or hear about them
