If you are working with multiple Nexpose vulnerability scanners it makes sense to want to generate a bunch of Nexpose Scan Templates on one Nexpose Seurity Console and distribute to a bunch of other Nexpose Security Console’s. There is not much documentation I could find on doing this so luckily it is fairly easy. Follow the instructions below to first export a Nexpose Scan Template from a Nexpose Security Console and then import a Nexpose Scan Template to another Nexpose Security Console. The scan templates are stored as XML so exporting consists of copying the XML file from the server running Nexpose to either your local machine or to another server running Nexpose.
Most people will likely find this on their own but since I couldn’t find a specific restart button within the Nexpose Security Console web interface I figured it would be worth noting in a short article. The below details describe how to restart the Nexpose Security Console via the Nexpose Security Console web interface.
