Issue:
Software inventory collect task is in status ERROR.

In AMAgent logs following error appears :

amagent|SVCSPECS.CPP|000463|INFO   | Perform actual software inv. work based on the accumulated configuration.
amagent|SVCSPECS.CPP|000463|INFO   | Filescan disabled. Will not launch amisww32.exe.
amagent|SVCSPECS.CPP|000463|INFO   | Signature-based software scan enabled.
amagent|SVCSPECS.CPP|000463|INFO   | Signature scan not configured for this task
amagent|SVCSPECS.CPP|000463|INFO   | Intellisig scan not configured for this task
amagent|SVCSPECS.CPP|000562|ERROR  | Cannot obtain signatures or intellisigs from server. Aborting signature-based software scan.


 
Cause:
This problem occurs if there are 2 Software inventory collect tasks assigned to a machine :
 
- One for Signature scan without intellisig scan
- One for intellisig scan without Signature Scan.


In below example there are 2 Software Discovery collect tasks linked to one computer.
One is for intellisig scan (Signature scan is not checked).
One is for Signature scan (intellisig scan is not checked).

Resolution:
Merge the 2 Software inventory collect tasks into a single Software inventory collect task for both Signature Scan and intellisig scan and link only this one to the computers.
