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.
