The following example shows how to assign remote shares to a NetApp device.

  1. Go to Settings > Assign Remote Shares.


  2. Assign By:
    • NAS or VM: Lets you choose if you want to see NAS devices or Virtual Machines
    • [NAS/VM] Device: Select one device or all devices.
    • Share Type: CIFS or NFS. Automatically changes the available agent to match the protocol.
  3. After you have set the above criteria, you can then select the shares you want:


  4. You can narrow it down the shares by using a regular expression filter.
    • Select the shares you want. You can select multiple shares by using CTRL or SHIFT.
    • Device: select which agent you want to do the work.
    • Share Depth: Used to move the start point of file analysis further down the share. SRM Profiler will treat each folder at that level as its own root directory.
    • Increasing Share Depth increases the amount of work File Analysis must do. It should only be set greater than 0 if required. Using the default Share Depth of 0 will still gather data on all files in all sub folders.

    • Move: Click the down arrow to assign the share, or the up arrow to unassign shares.
  5. After you have assigned the shares to the agents you want, click Save. This immediately assigns out the shares to that agent, and file analysis is performed at the next scheduled file analysis start time for that agent. If you want to change the start time, click on the Device Configuration icon for the agent doing the scanning and under "File Analysis" you will see the option to change the start time.
