Scanner Appliances are known by a name within QualysGuard. When you configure a scan, you choose the right Appliance based on this name. QualysGuard assigns a default name to Appliances when they are installed that is not very practical, such as is_quays_lk1.



Changing the Name

The Appliances' names are known in QualysGuard as Friendly Names. You can edit these names to be something more meaninful for your context. In the menu of the Appliance, select "Edit" of the Appliance for which you want to change the name.




In the edit menu you can set the name to something more meaningful to you, and press Save.





The name change will be immediate within the QualysGuard web interface. The Appliance LCD display will be updated at the next polling interval.
