If SolarWinds NCM cannot automatically download firmware vulnerability data (for example, because you are on a closed network), you can import vulnerability data files from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and then manually add them to your NCM server. NCM will use the information in these files to search for vulnerabilities that could affect your devices.

  1. Download the firmware vulnerability .zip files from NIST.
  2. Log in to your NCM server.
  3. Verify the location of the vulnerability announcements folder. (The default location is C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\NCM\Vuln\Xml.)
    1. Click Settings > All 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.
  4. Extract the contents of the .zip files to the location verified above.

  5. Under Vulnerability Search Settings, click Run Now.
