Re: nmap xml import with no os info

That's actually a design decision since nmap is really bad at guessing
if it doesn't have 100% accurate info (and even then sometimes it will
say it is definitely 100% one of these 5 operating systems).  All of
the OS info is stored in a note ('db_notes' to see it), but doesn't
get set in the host info directly.

Couldn't help notice that after importing nmap xml file into metasploit,
none of the os related fields (os_name, os_flavor, os_sp, os_lang) had any
information imported into the db.

In contrast when I open up the xml file with a browser, it shows up the
information under the "os match" section for each host.

I've been looking around trying to find if there's anything else that should
be done either during the import or scan process that would help get this
info into the db, but haven't found anything yet.

Again any URL or doc that can help me understand this would be much
