The attributes that SPECTRUM captures on the physical device contained special characters (ie. %, & , umlaut, etc), which causes the problem.
The issue is due to special characters (ie. %, & , umlaut, etc) on the device. Remove the special characters from the entries on the device and the capture will be successful.
