Moving your vulnerability processor to a managed host or console

If required, you can move your vulnerability processor between a QRadar® Vulnerability Manager managed host appliance and your QRadar console.

Before you begin

Ensure that a dedicated QRadar Vulnerability Manager managed host is installed and a valid processor appliance activation key is applied.


  1. On the navigation menu ( Navigation menu icon ), click Admin.
  2. Click System and License Management > Deployment Actions > Manage Vulnerability Deployment.
  3. Click Enable Processor.
  4. Select the managed host or console from the Processor list.

    If your processor is on the managed host, you can select only the QRadar console.

  5. Click Save.
  6. On the Admin tab toolbar, select Advanced > Deploy Full Configuration.
  7. Click OK.

    After you change your vulnerability processor deployment, you must wait for your deployment to fully configure. In the Scan Profiles page, the following message is displayed: QVM is in the process of being deployed.
