The answer for you is Yes:).
This is how you can perform a scan, let assume the ip address of the remote
server is 10.10.10.1 and the username is admin1234
1)you can cd to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer 2>
or you can do set path="C:\Program Files\Microsoft Baseline Security
2)runas /netonly /user:admin1234 mbsa
It will prompt for password and just key in the password the MBSA gui will
pop up,you can perform the scanning there.
I hope you can perform the task and do let me know if you like to ask more
question on this, I be happy to assists you.I can be reach by email or Yahoo
