Troubleshooting Tips

  1. If you do not find the system here, check whether you have added the system under the Scope of Management
  2. Check the Agent Status of all the systems; it should be "Agent Installed". For systems with the status as "Not Installed" or "Agent Installation Failed", inventory scanning cannot be performed. You need to reinstall the agents in these systems before scanning them for getting the inventory details.
  3. If you get an error as WMI Service is not running, start the WMI Service in the system and try scanning again.
  4. If you get an error as Asset Scanning is locked, contact desktopcentral-support@manageengine.com
  5. If you get an error as DCOM not enabled, enable DCOM and try scanning again.
