I am currently screening for CIFS files open, read, write, read and delete requests on an External Fpolicy server. I would like to listen only to file request for files which have Offline bit set on it.
NetApp Cluster Mode 8.2.
I have created fpolicy-policy-event. But to configure the filters to listen for Offline files there is a Filter value in the API, called offline_bit but it is applicable only to NFS. How can I listen for offline file requests only on the External FPolicy server ?
Filter Name: Monitor only offline file
Filter Value in API: offline_bit
Description: Send notification for only those files on which the offline bit is set. This filter doesn’t work on folders.
Note: Only the filters write_with_size_change and offline_bit are applicable for NFS. The other filters are applicable only for CIFS.

Hi, Did you figure out how to do this. Please let me know. I am not able to trigger any kind of screen request to come to fpolicy server. I am using CIFS too. Other than events configuration - is there anything else I could be missing?

Hi, Sorry for the late response. Firstly check if you have all these correctly applied on the NetApp Cmode VServer.
FPolicy External Engine
Run the command below:
vserver fpolicy show-engine -vserver <VServerName> -node <NodeName> -fields disconnect-reason,server-status,disconnected-since,disconnect-reason-id
If your VServer is connected then you are correctly registered to recieve notifications
If are unable to see it connected then Enable and Disable to Fpolciy this wil initiate a new Fpolicy Connection.
Let me know if this solves or else I will tell you more solutions.
