Data collection jobs fail with an error in evaluation
When you run data collection jobs, a data collection job may fail with the following error message:
An error occured in the evaluation activity.
Unable to retrieve the list of assets from ADAM.
No assets were resolved from the directory, either due to
insufficient permissions or invalid job definition.
This error means that the standard that is associated with the asset group does not contain a target type that matches the assets in the asset group or the asset folder.
To correct the error, you should use the asset group that contains the assets of the target type that the standard contains.
Consider the following example:
You run a data collection job with the standard that contains only "IIS Web Sites" target types. You use "All Windows Machines" asset group to run the data collection job. In such a case, the data collection job fails unless you select an asset group that contains IIS Web Sites.
