How to run vulnerability assessment in Virtual Appliance?

Environment

Virtual Appliance 14.x

Resolution

Virtual Appliance is a pre-packaged appliance and does not provide direct control. 
Specifically root control is provided to clients. 

1. Clients can run tools which need to be present on the system and will work properly as the following user, 
config 
dsa 
imps 
oracle 
You can not run tools which require root. 

2. There is another set of tools which need not be installed on
Virtual Appliance. Like SSL/HTTP scanners. 
You can use these tools on
Virtual Appliance just as you would use them on other systems.
