We are performing an in-place upgrade for our Microsoft Windows Server to upgrade it from Windows Server 2016 to Windows Server 2019, will we have to reinstall the F-Secure Radar Scan node?
If the in-place upgrade goes through without any issues, you shouldn't be required to reinstall the F-Secure Radar Scan node after performing an in-place upgrade of a Windows Server.
Before you perform the in-place upgrade, we recommend to backup the F-Secure Radar Scan node license file, since it is required during a reinstall of the F-Secure Radar Scan node if something goes wrong during the in-place upgrade. The F-Secure Radar Scan node license file typically lays under C:\Program Files (x86)\F-Secure\RadarScanAgent\license.fsrl .
Here is a link to the in-place upgrade article by Micrososft: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/upgrade/upgrade-2016-to-2019

What is the maximum simultaneous scan limit for F-Secure Radar Scan Node?
These are the default values for the maximum number of simultaneous scans that a scan node is allowed to run:
Discovery Scan: 10 System Scan: 30 Web Scan: 5
These default values can be modified if required. See the following entries from our admin guide for more information: Windows:

There is an issue with scan nodes not being able to connect to F-Secure back-end servers. In short, the Last seen and Engine update indicators on https://portal.radar.f-secure.com/mmc/settings/scannodes.aspx show a delay of more than 3-4 minutes.
To troubleshoot the scan node connectivity:
Make sure that the F-Secure Radar Scan Node Agent (legacy name= Karhu.Scan.Daemon) service is running. Check this by using Windows Task Manager or Windows Local Service. Make sure that the Windows credentials used to run the F-Secure Radar Scan Node Agent (Karhu.Scan.Daemon) service are able to log in. While logged in with these Windows credentials, run the following command: C:\Program Files (x86)\F-Secure\RadarScanAgent>FSRadarAgent.exe --test
This runs a connectivity test against our Radar Update server back-end. There should be no visible problems or errors while the previous test executes.
Ensure that using a browser to access the Security Center portal or https://portal.radar.f-secure.com, https://api.radar.f-secure.com and https://updates.radar.f-secure.com works. Also check if there are any changes in the network configuration or if the connection needs a proxy for outbound traffic.
If you need to configure or check the current http-proxy settings, you can open the Radar Scan node - Control Center application. Proxy related settings are visible in the Settings pane and are listed below.
By default, the scan node agent respects operating system proxy settings. On Windows, you can specify a web proxy in Internet Options (Connections -> Lan Settings). However, you have to configure it for the specific user (or service) account. Internet Explorer options are customized for each specific Windows account. Usually, the following procedure works in applying proxy settings to the Radar Scan Node Agent:
identify which user (or service) account Radar Scan Node Agent uses log in to the system using this account configure the Internet Option proxy settings restart the Radar Scan Node Agent Service (net stop "f-secure radar scan node agent", net start "f-secure radar scan node agent")
Verify communication works by looking at the service logs in the Radar scan node root directory C:\Program Files (x86)\F-Secure\RadarScanAgent\logs.

F-Secure Radar Discovery Scan not finding any hosts
General instructions for troubleshooting:
Keep "Process if no PING" option turned on. Create a new Discovery Scan template, port scan mode i.e: for TOP 100 ports and with debug / verbose mode enabled. Attach your newly created DS template to your new discovery scan record and run it. This will tell you much more about the details of the scan execution and can enclose the root cause. Check gateways. In case the scan node server has more than one network interface / IP address, check if the scanner can for some unknown reason choose another gateway. On the "Scanning Performance" drop-down, try choosing "polite" or "sneaky". Don't only ping the given host (i.e. 192.168.99.71) from the scan node. Try to also access some services (f.ex: if there is a www service, try to access it with a web browser from the scan node).
Consider checking what account with what type of permissions you are running. Are your local account permissions the same as the permissions of the service account that Radar scan node is using? If your user account is coming from AD, while Radar has a local user account - does it change anything in your network setup with regards to what you can / can't access over the network?
Radar uses Nmap for port scanning, which is an industry-standard tool. You can see the exact command line parameters in the scan log that Radar uses to run a specific port scan. You can try to download namp https://nmap.org/download.html, run a port scan using nmap GUI, and compare command line params and results. Check the system proxy settings. Notice that the proxy settings can be different for the Scan Node Agent service account (local user?) and for a personal user account that is coming from AD. In some scenarios, disabling ARP-ping is required to allow the scan node agent installed in the same subnet to find hosts. To edit an existing discovery scan template (host discovery or port discovery), use the instructions below:
Create new discovery scan template. Name it as you wish (eg. "Host Discovery (no ARP ping)") or from the scan mode select "Host discovery" or "port scan". Click Finish and Save. Download the new template by selecting it on the templates list (click on the checkbox). Click "Download scan settings". Edit the downloaded file by adding ' --disable-arp-ping' node within '' (see screenshot). Click "Upload scan settings' on the Radar templates list. Browse for your edited file and click "Upload." Use your new template in discovery scans.
If none of the above helped, you should re-install Radar discovery scan node.

After Radar license renewal, I'm able to access the Radar portal. However, one or more of my scan nodes show up in an expired state and the scan node has a yellow exclamation mark in the list of scan nodes (Settings >> Scan nodes). Also I'm unable to launch any scans using this particular scan node.
Contact support for further assistance as there might be an issue with your Radar license(s). You can submit a support request from here.

After running internet discovery scan, unable to add host from internet discovery scan result into scan group for F-Secure Radar vulnerability scan
If you receive the error message "Could not find a scan node in the scan group settings" when trying to add the host to a scan group, go to Vulnerability Scans and check the settings for scan group that you intended to use. Make sure System Scan is enabled and the scan node is assigned to the scan group.
