Error when using Insight's discovey "Mandatory hostname missing"

I have a problem as I installed Insight's Discovery tool on my Windows PC, I ran the first discovery only to my PC and it works, so then I tried to use it as a Service and ran it to detect another PC on my network and then it shows that the "Mandatory Hostname missing".

I have seen that it seems to be a credentials error but when I use the same one as I did in the first discovery I can't undersatnd what's wrong. How can I know which user is correct if I only have one account?

Hi Liz,

I had this error when we were testing Discovery to get our servers over the network, and I also realized it was an user issue.

Are you using Power Shell with Discovery? If you are not sure, check the tab "Common" and look for "Use Power Shell" option. Try to mark off this option.
