Engaged Sweeper

For security reasons, the Linux account and password that is known by Lansweeper as "scanning credentials", is not added to the sudo list on the Linux systems.
So the "sudo /usr/bin/lspci -vm" command, executed during a scan failed.

Is it possible to configure Lansweeper on such a way, that no command with "sudo" is used during the scan of a Linux system?

Hello there!

All Linux commands used by Lansweeper can be found in this KB article: https://www.lansweeper.com/knowledgebase/linux-and-unix-scanning-requirements/

As mentioned in the article, the dmidecode and lshw commands require sudo rights and this cannot be configured. This isn't mentioned but there's a sudo fallback mechanism in place for the lspci command, but this is distro specific so it may not be required for your machines.
