Authentication Failure - Local Checks Not Run

info Nessus Plugin ID 21745
New! Plugin Severity Now Using CVSS v3

The calculated severity for Plugins has been updated to use CVSS v3 by default. Plugins that do not have a CVSS v3 score will fall back to CVSS v2 for calculating severity. Severity display preferences can be toggled in the settings dropdown.


The local security checks are disabled.


Local security checks have been disabled for this host because either the credentials supplied in the scan policy did not allow Nessus to log into it or some other problem occurred.


Address the problem(s) so that local security checks are enabled.
