Re: Time to lose gen1 OS detection?

If I use -v and -O1, I can get a that says
Initiating gen1 OS Detection
instead of
Initiating OS detection (try #1)

If nmap can't figure out the OS, I get this in the output
Initiating OS detection (try #1) against 192.168.xx.xx
Retrying OS detection (try #2) against 192.168.xx.xx
Retrying OS detection (try #3) against 192.168.xx.xx
Retrying OS detection (try #4) against 192.168.xx.xx
Retrying OS detection (try #5) against 192.168.xx.xx

but no real indication which database it was using at the time

Unfortunately, I am not in a position to scan any unidentifiable
systems right now.  Most of those systems are production AIX systems
and scanning them crashes some of the apps and must be coordinated
with the admins.

If only gen1 detects the OS, does a note to submit come up, or is it
only if it is not found or the number of -v's used?

Pardon my laziness for not just checking for myself.
