In chasing the Scan/Repeating Re-Scan problem some had I Uninstalled & Re-Installed several times. In the process I incurred 1.5 minute Scans Vs. the normal 4.5 min, and the Date of Last Scan would never change after I ran multiple, Manual Scans. Scans Start on Step 2, and I've watched Step 4 become Step 7 Vs. 5,6,7, which involve the OS and patches Checks.

After the last Re-Install I did a Re-Boot and the Last Scan Date Changes and the first Scan ran 4 minutes. I just did a Scan and it only ran 2 minutes with Step 4 skipping to 7 again.

The point of this was to brag on Re-Booting after Any Install, but I hope someone can answer if the Short Scan Time and Steps Skipped somehow are OK, or part of another issue.

You need to make sure your system date is set correctly. An incorrectly set system date can confuse the PSI into thinking that the "next" scan (always scheduled for a week after the last) is now.

Hope this helps.
