A customer asked me about the "Inventory chassis type" field. In the "All inventory" view, values are missing or "Unknown", while in the inventory itfelf the value is set. I double checked it in my test environment and see the same bahaviour.
Can anyone confirm this?
I can replicate this in 2019 R1 On-Premises, but not in 2019 R1 Cloud. Looks like it has been identified as a defect and the fix has already been applied to the Cloud.
Therefore, I expect that this issue would be fixed in 2019 R2 On-Premises.
I'm not sure that it helps a whole lot, but I am unable to reproduce behavior like is described here in FlexNet Cloud. I see "Inventory Chassis Type" values in the "All Inventory" grid as expected:
I see that issue occurring in my own local install of FNMS 2019R1. It looks like a defect to me as the list view of computers sources data from Grid_ComputerListModel* and the individual properties page of a computer sources data from the ComplianceComputer* - however the ChassisType retrieved is not the same from both, the NULL in the first query results in the empty chassis type column in the grid view.
I can confirm that I see the same issue on my implementation.
FNMS 2018 R2 and FNMS 2019 R1 on prem implementation.
Thanks for your confirmation. I had the assumption that a view or something like that must be defect. Unfortunately none of the "Grid_" objects are mentioned in the schema reference.
There are some stored procedures referring to this table, but they seem to call CLR precedores and the assembly is binary, so I cannot see inside of them. Intelectual property and stuff... :D
I'll have to open a case.
