UCMDB Tip: Inventory Discovery is failing because scanwin32-x86.exe is not found

Recently we came across an issue where Inventory Discovery activity was failing due to the following error:

"Resource F:\hp\UCMDB\DataFlowProbe\bin\..\runtime\probeManager\discoveryResources\ud_scanners\scanwin32-x86.exe not found".

The root cause for this issue was that during the upgrade process from UCMDB 10.01 to UCMDB 10.10 ScannersConfigurationByPlatform.xml had not been updated. As a result, scanner name , which was changed  from scanwin32-x86.exe in ver.10.01 to scanwin-x86.exe in 10.10 had not been updated either and Inventory Discovery activity was failing.

To resolve the issue we replaced the contents of ScannersConfigurationByPlatform.xml file with the contents of Out-of-the-Box ScannersConfigurationByPlatform.xml from CP13.
