Local fix

  • Disable the QVM processor (de-select Enable Proceesor) and
    deploy the changes. This removes the processor and all QVM
    scanners from the deployment.
    Add the QVM processor appliance and all scanners that were
    removed, and deploy the changes.
    See this link for more information on moving a QVM processor
    while performing steps to remove it first:

    r.doc/t_qvm_deploy_process.html
    
    *** Note: This workaround assumes there is a valid QVM license
    applied. The workaround does not apply if you do not.
