SonarQube only outputting duplicate code Code Smells

I am running the Sonar Scanner and can view my results on the SonarQube website, but only get duplicate code as the only kind of issue. The code base is hundreds of thousands of lines of code and I have manually verified there are other rules being broken. I am using one of our enterprise C++ Quality Profiles which has 160+ rules set to active. Any ideas what I’m doing wrong? Here is the output of SonarScanner:

Hi @MichaelPKostek,

how are you generating the bw_output\build-wrapper-dump.json file? Are you invoking build-wrapper with a clean build?
Is the bw_output\build-wrapper-dump.json empty?

I realized this problem is caused due to generating the build wrapper on Linux and the scanner on Windows. The paths in the wrapper are all wrong in this situation causing this failure. We do not have access to internet on the Linux machines and can’t build on Windows. Any suggestions?

Hi @MichaelPKostek,

unfortunately no, it is a requirement to have the build and the analysis on the same machine. Cannot you connect from your linux machine to your SonarQube instance? If they are on the same network you don’t need internet access.
