    Cause:

    Internet Guest Account does not have proper permissions to ...\LANDesk\ManagementSuite\LDScan or ..\Landesk\ManagementSuite\IncomingData

     

     

     

    Resolution:

    Modify the permissions on the appropriate folder to allow Internet Guest Account access.

    1. Right click on the folder  ...\LANDesk\ManagementSuite\LDScan (or IncomingData) and click properties
    2. Click on the Security Tab
    3. Click on Internet Guest Account (IUSR_)
    4. Grant the user Full Control
    5. Click OK
    6. Re-run the scan from the MAC

     

     

    Note: Scans are only sent through IIS when they are encrypted. While inventory encryption can be toggled with windows agents mac agents always send encrypted data.
