Insight discovery 'Mandatory Hostname' Error while running

I'm using Discovery 2.27.1.0 on a Windows Environment, and when a try to collect data from my Windows servers, I get the following error according to the logs: Error: Mandatory Hostname missing for: 10.128.4.200

This is just a test with the discovery tool. These errors only occur when I use the "..._PS.pat" patterns. WMI patterns work properly.

 

Here is the log content:

The problem was related to the user I've configured in the Discovery credentials.

I changed it to a user that have root permissions and the next scan didn't show any errors.
