Configuring Windows file servers

File Analysis scans Windows file servers to provide file security and storage insights. Configure file servers by following the steps below:

  • Select File Analysis from the application drop-down menu.
  • Go to Configuration > Source > Windows File Server.
  • Click + Add Server in the top-right corner.
  • Click the + symbol next to Select Server.
  • In the Select Servers pop-up, add the server, and click Select.
  • Choose to scan drives by selecting one of the following options:
    • All drives: This option can be used to scan all drives in the selected server.
    • Specific drives: This option can be used to scan specific drives as defined by you.
    • Custom drives: This option can be used to scan mounted drives or when the Specific drives option is unavailable. (The Specific drives option will be disabled automatically if DataSecurity Plus is unable to detect any drives.)
  • Click Install Agent and Finish.

Note: Reports and dashboards in File Analysis will be populated after the scans complete their first run. You can view the scan status in the Crunch Status section on the Configured Servers page (File Analysis > Configuration > Windows File Server).
