Inventorying Data Strings Longer than 254 Characters

Applies To: System Center Configuration Manager 2007, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2

When performing hardware inventory, if a property of a data class contains a string value greater than 254 characters, the inventory information for that property will not be processed or stored in the site database. For example, if you attempt to inventory the Win32_NTEventLogFile data class and one of the event log string entries is longer than 254 characters, the inventoried data for that property will be rejected by the management point when the client inventory report is processed.

When this situation occurs, you may see entries in the MP_Hinv.log log file similar to the following message when the client inventory report is processed:

Hinv: warning skipping instance of array property as exceeds max length. Class: "<data class name>" Property: "<data class property>"
