(UCMDB) Support Tip - After upgrading to Content Pack 24, UD Agent creates a "Program" folder

Error Message

(Windows only) After installing UCMDB 10.33 and CP24, or after upgrading to Content Pack 24, the "C:\Program" folder is found on the inventoried machines.


The root cause is that while running scanner on Windows platform, the following command will be executed:

mkdir C:\Program Files (x86)\Hewlett-Packard\Discovery Agent\

The path is not surrounded with quotation marks "", which causes the issue.

Workaround / Fix

The fix is to add quotation marks "" around the directory while executing the mkdir commands.

To do so, do the following:

Download the FixProgramFolder.zip. 

In UCMDB UI, go to Data Flow Management > Adapter Management, search for and backup the following files:



Go to Administration > Package Manager, click Deploy packages
