Scan objects outside AD?

(imported topic written by bendernet91)

Is it possible to scan objects (class b address space) outside of AD with Bigfix?

Is this an Add-on module?

2 Options,

I’m assuming you mean to scan for potential clients.

Option 1:

BESClientDeploy Wizard allows for you to scan via networks, simply enter the ip range to scan. (This will report back devices that are online and currently have the agent installed and its current version) *Must have access to report details

Option 2:

Create a NMAP Scan point to have the system scan the network on various subnets automatically and report back its findings.

scanning an entire class B from one interface is suboptimal… recommended approach is to go in waves. Get some agents deployed out there, use them as scan points to find more, continue until you’re not finding more.
