Correct format for SMB username when using domain account for authenticated scans?

Hi all,

Doing some authenticated scans in a domain environment, and have followed the GPO creation process correctly. I now have a group & account configured with the right permissions.

But now I can’t seem to find the right format for logging on with the domain account? Do I need to use the format DOMAIN\account when configuring a SMB login credential in Openvas?

Hi, I have used domain credentials and domain\username has worked fine for me.
