Re: how i can find out what file type are grouped in not identified

Hi avi,

The following cli give the list of file type that are recognized in dfm.

dfm srm file type list

Do a ls –l *. Or dir To find the list of file types in your environment and find out the diff.

If there are any new file types that’s available in your environment but not listed in the above cli you can add those file types using the below cli.

Below is an example of the same where I have added my name as a file type.

  1. dfm srm file type add .adai

The FileType: .adai has been added successfully.

Hi Avi,

     dfm only identifies the file type that are listed in the below cli.

dfm srm filetype list

Go to your servers and do a ls -l in linux/solaris environment and dir in windows environment to find out the file types

Now do a diff between the dir or ls-l and the output of the dfm srm filetype list.

And add each of the file types that are in the server where you are doing a srm file walk to dfm using the below cli.

dfm srm filetype add

Mount the CIFS share as a drive in one of the windows  box and do a dir to find the list of files.

Add those missing file types in dfm using dfm srm file type add command.
