Because of a change from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), SolarWinds NCM can no longer download new firmware vulnerability data. This data must be downloaded from NIST and imported into SolarWinds NCM.

Verify the vulnerability announcements folder

  1. Click Settings.
  2. Under Product Specific Settings, click NCM Settings.
  3. Under Advanced, click Firmware Vulnerability Settings.
  4. Under Vulnerability Data Import Settings, verify the location of the folder with vulnerability announcements XML data.

Download firmware vulnerability data and import into SolarWinds NCM

  1. Log in to your SolarWinds NCM server.
  2. Download the firmware vulnerability .zip files from NIST.
  3. Extract the contents of the .zip files to the location verified above. The default location is C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\NCM\Vuln\Xml.
  4. Under Vulnerability Search Settings, click Run Now.
