I've set up fpolicy on my NetApp filer Release 7.0.5 Model FAS270 to screen for create,delete,rename,read,write. Then I start my fpolicy server on a remote host. After that 'fpolicy show' command gives the following output
My question is why read and write are monitored for NFS only? Shouldn't they be monitored for CIFS as well? Is there a dependency on the NetApp Release/Model number? I am using the latest Fpolicy sample server code(fpserver) example from the latest Fpolicy SDKv7.3.1.
Himanshu, I suspect this is just bad syntax in the message and what it really means is that for NFS, the only things that are monitored with Fpolicy (at least in ONTAP 7.0.5) are file read and file write. That is, operations like file create, file rename and directory delete are monitored for CIFS but not for NFS. Changing to a newer version of ONTAP like 7.2.6 or 188.8.131.52 might give you more Fpolicy options with NFS.
i am using ontap simulator 8.2.1 7-mode firstly i tell u my aim .my aim is monitoring on cifs share . write a .txt what change done on share file or folder .same as event logs. i want to also write to file security permission changes on shares files or folders. some suggest me fpolicy. i successfuly configure fpolicy and give a screen server but i dont know how we can retrieve information from screen server ip can anybody tell me how we can do this.
