Missing scan data on Endpoint protection should be installed on virtual machine scale sets

New Contributor

Hi everyone,

I have enabled Defender for Cloud on one of our Azure Subscriptions as we are looking to test it's capabilities to report on Defender for Windows. I'm looking at the metric "Endpoint protection should be installed on virtual machine scale sets" however all of my VMSS instances are "Missing Scan Data".

If I look at the scale sets on the Inventory page of Defender for Cloud I can see the Monitoring Agent is Installed and Defender for Cloud is On.

 

Is there anything else I need to do to start scanning? How can I tell why these VMSS's are not being scanned.

@Stanislav Belov Thanks, but that link doesn't really provide any rectification actions. In the end the issue was that it wouldn't scan existing VMSS sets when Defender was enabled, I had to delete and re-create them.
