The following document explains how the end user can get the CA Vulnerability Manager to scan the asset immediately instead of waiting for the scheduled scan.


By default, the VM Service performs a scan whenever an asset is booted. In the event that you would like to perform a scan during a non-scheduled time period, you can use the Auto-Inventory 'Inventory Now' feature to perform an on-demand scan or manually stop and restart the VM Service from the host at any time by using the Windows Services Administrative Tools Stop/Start function.
