Qualys Scanner to exclude root login

Hi Everyone,

I am bit new to Qualys and can not figure out why non authenticated scan on VMware for ESXi boxes uses root login attempts on ESXi boxes. I have also used authenticated scan on ESXi boxes, the authenticated scans are successful. But Qualys still does try to use root credentials too.

My problem with the root login is, it locks the ESXi root account because it tries for more than 5 times.

Anyway to fine tune the scan engine to exclude root login to ESXi would be greatly appreciated.
