  • Hello YSE , 

     

    I hope you are doing well . 

     

    Do you have any error after you run the job ? 

     

    Do you review the discovery results ? 

     

    You need to review the settings that you put in the scanner and the agent . Please review those parameters to determinate if the job results are according to the rules that you put . 

     


    Best Regards,

  • NO, there are no Errors Melissa, I need an explnation as I clearly asked. Thanks.

  • Also, please take a look at the attached picture so you will understand what I am asking about. Thanks.

  • Hi YSE,

     

    Could you tell us what kind of running software and installed software are conected by realization link? By default, Inventory Discovery by Scanner job only collects Virtualizaton related running software. 

     

    For your two questions:

    1. figuring out why & how they are being created now…????

     

    If the installed software and running software share same path(path of command line and path of executable binary file), they will be connected by realization link.

     

    2. what we need to do to get these for all Installed to running software…

    Whether there are realization links between installed and running  software, it depends on if they have same path which is described in 1).

     

    Hope it can make you clear on these questions.
