Scan profiles allow scan tasks and settings to be grouped together - each scan profile can be started, scheduled and monitored as a single unit. It is possible for example to create a scan profile that is scheduled to scan Windows servers and import infrastructure separately from Windows workstations which may require scanning on a less frequent basis.

To create a scan profile right click the Scan Profiles node and select New Profile. Enter a suitable name for the newly created scan profile such as "Scan Local Computer", each scan profile name must be unique.
