Hi all

I have recently installed MBSA 1.2.1 onto a Windows 2003 server and would
like to scan several other windows 2003 servers within this environment. How
ever once install, i select scan mulitply machines, enter the domain name
then MBSA reports that the servers cannot be contacted.

The servers in this environment have been lock down. Are there any log files
that I can use debug; What services and security policy settings is MBSA
dependent on in order for it to run.

Thanks in advance
