The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) has recently made an update. This update limits SolarWinds NCM to download new Firmware Vulnerability Data. For more information check National Vulnerability Database (
https://nvd.nist.gov/Data-Feeds/datafeedinfo). This data must now be downloaded directly from NIST, and then imported to NCM manually.
Verify the vulnerability announcements folder:
Click Advanced > Firmware Vulnerability Settings.
In Vulnerability Data Import Settings verify the location of the folder with vulnerability announcements XML data is stored, default location is C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\NCM\Vuln\Xml
Download and import Firmware Vulnerability Data:
Log into your SolarWinds NCM server
Download the Firmware Vulnerability .zip file from NIST:
Extract the contents of the .zip files to C:\ProgramData\SolarWinds\NCM\Vuln\Xml
Go back to the Firmware Vulnerability Settings and in Vulnerability Search Settings section click Run Now
NOTE: Make sure that option "Direct urls to xml vulnerability announcements data files to be automatically downloaded and imported into database" is not selected.
