Please note: - Discover only, Protect does not work with NFS shares - Owner and ACLs are not recorded - last-accessed dates are affected by scan - Anonymous credentials are supported - Does not support multi-byte credentials or share names
In order to set up the scan, please follow these steps:
1. Go to /Vontu/Protect/config/crawler.properties and see if the following applies:
crawler.use.jcifs = false
2. Go to /Vontu/Protect/bin to see the following files of interest:
nfs.bat - contains the command used to connect when using mount nfsu.bat - contains the command used to disconnect when using mount smb.bat - contains the command used to connect when using jcifs smbu.bat - contains the command used to disconnect when using jcifs
In this case, we only need to modify the files nfs.bat and nfsu.bat .
3. Use the content of the mounting script to test whether or not you will be able to successfully mount and unmount the NFS drive.
For example, within the smb.bat the command line is
net use %1 %2 %4 /user:%3 /persistent:no
Which has the following substitutes.
%1 = drive %2 = path %3 = username %4 = password
In a similar fashion, nfs.bat and nfsu.bat are setup with the same substitutions.
Once you have tested the mount command and updated the mount scripts, you should be able to run the scan against it.
Also, the default (smb.bat + jcifs enabled) mounter appears to work for NFS shares. In this case, last-accessed date is not affected by scanning. (this option hasn't been extensively tested). In that case the mounting scripts would have to be set as nfs:\\hostname\share\...
