Dead Hosts still showing as vulnerable after purging host assets and closing vulnerabilities on dead hosts.

Question asked by james fotherby on Nov 28, 2018

Is there an additional step that is required? I have the 'Close Vulnerabilities on Dead Hosts' set to close after 1 time.

To give some insight into my particular case, I am running a scheduled job within the Qualys API which wipes and creates new assets groups with found IPs in our network. The above mentioned asset purge and 'closing vulnerabilities on dead hosts' removed most stale data in the reports, but some still remains consistently and are confirmed to not be alive.
