Saving NetScan results to CSV using command line

Saving NetScan results to CSV using command line   19 November 2018, 11:52

Hello. We are trying to save the NetScan results to CSV by using this command:
netscan.exe /hide /config:netscan.xml /file:C:\temp\ScannedIP\HOVLAN.txt /auto:"C:\temp\ScannedIP\Result.csv"
The output successfully gets to 100%, displays "100% Finishing" and hangs at the very the end.

Any help or suggestions?

It may be just that you needed to wait a bit longer (a few minutes to finish scanning of certain devices).

Another way of dealing with this issue could be setting the max thread run-time to 30 or 60 seconds in the config file:
This will make the app attempt to gracefully finish scanning any devices that are slow to respond; and if that fails, forcibly finish the scanning of those by interrupting any pending network I/O operations after double length of the timeout.

You can also launch the app without the /hide switch to see which devices prevent the scanner from finishing the scan.
