NetApp FAS3250 reports "The request is not supported" in response to FindNextChangeNotification


I am writing a Windows service for a customer to monitor a folder on their NetApp FAS3250 for new files.  I receive an error "The request is not supported" when making the call to FindNextChangeNotification to the device driver.  Does anyone know why the driver responds with this message?  Is the device truly just not compatible with this call?  Or is there a known workaround?



This article below discusses the same procedure call but with a slightly different issue.  Does the resolution discussed with the max_mpx help your situation?




Thank you for the link.  Unfortunately that article is not accessible to me.  I receive a 401 - Unauthorized Access when I click the link.


Would it be possible to paste the contents of that article into this forum?  Thank you!
