JunOS Authenticated Scans (special requirements?)

Question asked by Joshua Spinks on Jan 12, 2018

We have configured a UNIX authentication record in Qualys to perform authenticated scans on the Juniper SRX based firewalls within the environment. We have configured a superuser account on those machines with the ability to execute shell commands (accountx@domain.fw > start shell% yes). 

However even though the password is correct and the user account information is correctly entered into Qaulys and the Juniper SRX, Qualys is returning an authentication failure for this machine. 

 

Are there some inherently more complex items that need to be allowed, are there special requirements that need to be performed on the Qualys or the Juniper side that anyone is aware of? Any help with this item would be greatly appreciated.
