How to use FLTMC.exe to load and unload the evfilter mini-filter driver for Enterprise Vault (EV) for File System Archiving (FSA).

 


Solution



The FLTMC.exe command is run from a cmd prompt on the Windows file server.  The syntax is as follows:
 

To unload the EvFilter driver:
 
Fltmc unload EvFilter 
 

To load the EvFilter driver:
 
Fltmc load EvFilter 

 
To view all instances of loaded drivers:
 
Fltmc instances
 
 
To attach the driver to a specific volume:
 
Fltmc attach EvFilter C:
 
 
To detach the driver from a specific volume:
 
Fltmc detach EvFilter C:
 
 

NOTE:   The EV services on the file server should be restarted after unloading and reloading the filter driver. 

For troubleshooting purposes the results can be saved to a text file. The syntax would be the same as above but adding > [File name and path]

ie: Fltmc instances > C:\FilterInstance.log
