Data Insight 3.0.1 scanning cifs.homedir share

This issue has been solved. See solution.

I am trying to setup Data Insight 3.0.1 with an artificial share so I can see activity on users home shares from a NetApp filer. I have created the .pb script as mentioned in the admin guide but I am struggling finding the user id to use with the configdb.exe command:

Find the user ID of a Data Insight user assigned Product Administrator Server Administrator role from the latest configuration database table in the $DATADIT/conf folder.

Is this the user ID of the Server Administrator that I see in the Settings -> Data Insight Users screen? If so how do I get the user ID from Windows?

... also ...

Somewhere in the script I am guessing that the line:

value: "/CIFS.HOMEDIR" should containg the actual path to the home directories?

Thanks folks.

hi David,

Apologize for the late reply.

Instead of the cli, you can simply add the share using using the "Add Share" dialog available on the "Monitored Shares" sub-tab of the filer you are trying to monitor. In that dialog, specify "CIFS.HOMEDIR" as the name of the Share and "/CIFS.HOMEDIR" as the physical path. Use the value for physical_path as is, and it does not have to point to an actual physical location. Also set the scanning schedule for this Share to NEVER. I have attached a screenshot for reference. 

Hope that helps.
