The state of the HW/SW Inventory service can be determined by State when inventory fails in the ruleset Do hardware/software Inventory. This state was overwritten by the following error cases:

  • Empty output, default CRIT
  • Connection, default CRIT
  • Timeout, default CRIT
  • Exception, default UNKNOWN

This behaviour was introduced with 1.5.0 and and has been fixed now: The HW/SW Inventory service state won't be overwritten any more.
