Scan hosts from script or host list

Created: 22 Jan 2013 • Updated: 22 Jan 2013 | 6 comments

I have a list of hosts that I need to send this command to, and sending them one at a time is rather tedious.

Could I do this from a list of hosts, or script this somehow?

As mentioned in the other thread - doscan.exe would be a possible way to go:

was hoping for an option to select a series of machine sin the console and perform the scan, as opposed to one at a time.

This isn't possible from within the SEPM. perhaps you can create an Idea so it can't be voted on.

Alternatively you can trigger a scan on a selected group in SEPM:

1. From the context menu, select 'Run Command on Group'.
2. From the context sub-menu, select 'Scan'.
3. In the Select Scan Type window, select 'Full Scan'.

@SebastianZ Yes, I am aware of this. I am talking about dynamically creating a group, nad running a scan against it.

@Brian81 Someone has already beat me to it.
