Hi msutharh,

If the Inventories for these devices can be found in the [FNMSInventory].[Computer] table, you obviously have been able to import inventory data for the devices previously.

  • Are there any NDI file that can be imported using the mgsImport tool succesfully?
  • Which version (and command line options) of the Flexera Agent did you use for creating the latest NDI files where the import fails?
  • Would it be possible to share one of these NDI files for testing, please?

@erwinlindemann 

Yes, both devices are found in Computer table in FNMSInventory DB.

Are there any NDI file that can be imported using the mgsImport tool successfully?
-> No, because this is Test instance and only 2 machines are reported and both fail to import.

Which version (and command line options) of the Flexera Agent did you use for creating the latest NDI files where the import fails?
-> FNMS agent version is 14.00.52 and both machines OS is Windows sever 2012 R2

Would it be possible to share one of these NDI files for testing, please?
-> Unable to share due to some compliance reason but I have tried to import same NDI files into Production instance and it imported successfully.

@msutharh - Are you trying to import into a multi-tenant instance of FNMS On-Premises?  If yes, then the name of the file needs to have the TenantID of one of the tenants in the database.

No, we have single tenant only of on-prem and as mentioned previously it's a Test environment. But when I copy working inventory file from Production environment and paste it in Inventory folder in Test environment then it also showing failed while import.
