When you perform an Asset import, the Asset import job may fail with the following exception:
An error occurred in the data query 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 indicates that the asset types that you selected in the "Limit Asset Import Scope" dialog box do not match. The selected types should match the asset types that are contained in the asset folder or asset group that is used for asset import.
To correct the error, you should limit the asset import scope. You should include only the asset types that are contained in the asset folder or the asset group that is used for asset import.
For example, consider the following case:
You import Windows machines.
You use the "All Windows Machines" asset group.
The scope does not contain any domains, only Windows machines.
The scope that you select in the Limit Asset Import Scope dialog box contains only domains.
In this case, the asset import fails to resolve the assets unless you select "Machines" in the "Limit Asset Import Scope" dialog box.
