Privileges need to run GFI LAN guard scans
Does anyone know off hand if you need to be a Domain admin in order to scan a network with GFI LAN guard. Just an FYI, I know everyone is going to say why don't you just try it, but the reason I'm not able to is, an ongoing battle between me the "Security Officer" and the IT manager at my job. My coworkers in the IT department want to stop me from running vulnerability scans on the network so I don't reveal all the vulnerabilities they haven't patched and give them more work to do. That's the reason they are telling management that I need Domain Admin privileges to run scans, I'm pretty sure you should only need local admin privileges to scan. Any insights.
