How to add non ncp volumes

I am evaluating File Reporter with NSM (eDirectory integration).

How do you add non ncp volumes? Right now I only see filesystems that have eDirectory objects. I added a native SLES Agent and cannot figure out how to make the filesystems show up. Same goes for the local non ncp filesystems of my OES2 box.

The Documentation says click on Main, go to Volume list and discover volumes. No mention that in a NSM integration that should be in the NSM admin, not in the NFR admin. Either way this will only discover filesystems with eDirectory objects.

As to the agents:

I assume I should use novell-filereporter-agent-32bit-1.0.0-32.x86_64.rpm for native SLES boxes and novell-filereporter-agentncp-32bit-1.0.0-56.x86_64.rpm for OES2 boxes? Some additional clarification in the documentation would be nice as well.

Thanks

Re: How to add non ncp volumes

Ok I will take the thing about the documentation back :-). It does say to use NSM-Admin to scan my filesystems. However there is no mention about Non NCP volumes. I was told at Brainshare that they can be added.

Here is what the documentation says:

2.2.1 Non-directory Services Managed Network

1.

Launch NFRAdmin.
2.

Click Scan Collection.
3.

Verify that all desired storage resources are listed in the Filtered Resource List.
4.

(Conditional) If a desired storage resource is not listed, click the Storage Resources drop-down menu and select Add Storage Resource (This function does not exist in a directory (NSM) enabled setup).
5.

In the Path Browser, locate the storage resources you want to add, select them, and click the + button to add them to the Selected Paths pane on the right side of the Path Browser.
6.

Click OK.

2.2.2 Directory Services Managed Network

1.

Launch NSMAdmin.
2.

Click Main.
3.

Click Volume List.
4.

Do one of the following:
*

Click Discover New Volume List to discover any missing volumes.
*

Click Rebuild Volume List to rebuild the volume list.

Re: How to add non ncp volumes

fweigert,
The NSM integrated version of Novell File Reporter deals only with
NCPServers and their volumes, so non NCP volumes cannot be added. I
apologize for the confusion.

In order scan non-ncp (ext3/reiser) volumes would need to move the to
the non-NSM-integrated manual mode DSI.

thanks,
NFMS Team

Re: How to add non ncp volumes

I was almost expecting this answer 🙂 I will give it a try with the DSI

Thanks,
