Hi
I am new to SCCM 2012 and have followed all your guides and so far all is well,
we have single primary server and around 700 PC's globally.

 



the issue we have is all the asset intelligence works fine and all the hardware and
software inventories scan and pull data happily for most machines apart from
around 10 machines have you any ideas what i should do?

My appoligies i meant to add the hardware inventory completes but not the software inventory and when you look at these particular machines on the management console the software scan is blank.

i am trying to run an auditing software which needs this to be populated and this is what pointed the issue out.

Any info would be great i have been pulling my hair out for days

Does the Inventoryagent.log say that the SW inventory completes?

 

BTW, I recommend turning off SW inv as there are just too many headaches with it and IMO it has almost zero value.

Im with you there as it only picks up files on the machine and not apps installed but i need the software scan to populate for the audit software :angry: as for the inventoryagent

IMO SW inv will not help you with SW audits.


For example: What is sol.exe? If you guess solitaire you would be right? However if you also guessed HP Solation Center, you would also be right. What about your DP do they have a license for everything since the software is on the servers?


So for over 100 minutes this PC is trashing it hard drive to find most (not all) exe, dll, and MSI.

Since it is not 100% what is the point?



Now back to you problem, do you seen the PC’s name on the site server within the sinvproc.log?

this was after stopping the the sms agent host service and renaming the inventoryAgent log in my attempts to clear it

Have you seen this before?

It means that it is in the middle of doing one of the
other task. My guess would be Software Inventory.

Yup and this is one of the reasons why I recommend turning off SW Inv., It takes 4 hours to timeout. During this time the HD is constantly busy and it slows down the systems.


If you are doing SW inv more than once a week, it is too often. Once every two week or once a month should be more than enough.

noted i did change it to 1 day to attempt to fix this but i am still convinced it is at client level as it is only a handful of machines do you know of any things that can block the software inventory but not the hardware?

Have you read the log file to see if the SW inv is timing out? If it does then you will never get any data from them.


If it does complete how big is the MIF file? If it is over 50 MB then you will never get any data returned. If it is under 50 MB then you need to edit the registry to have MIF collected that are bigger than 5 MB.
