I have File SRM configured to walk a number of Windows 2003 host paths to collect directory, file and user information. Some paths are internal drives, some are NetApp CIFS shares mounted on the host.
Once the file walk is done I view the "SRM File Owners" report to see which user accounts are consuming the most space. However, for user accounts that are local to the servers (i.e. non-AD accounts) they do not appear to get reported. They are being lumped into a "failed" category. The files owned by these local user accounts do get indexed and reported, but not the owners themselves.
Are the File SRM and host agent tools supposed to be able to report any/all file owners, or only file owners that the NetApp controller is aware of (i.e. Active Directory or users added to controller)?
Solved! SEE THE SOLUTION

In the Agent logs, I do see a warning about failing to lookup account information.
[ntap_agent: WARN]: Failed to LookupAccountSid(S-1-5-86-615999462-62705297-2911207457-59056572-3668589837) 1332
The NetApp Host Agent service starts automatically and logs on as "Local System Account". I was assuming that it would run with administrator privlidges.
Should I manually specify an account for the Host Agenst service to run as?

This appears to be a Windows-related permissions issue with one particular account, not a File SRM issue. There are a number of other local and AD accounts and File SRM can report on them successfuly.
Thanks for the answers. I'll have to troubleshoot why this one account is giving me grief.
