4.1.2 Syntax

Log in to the server as the Administrator user or as a user with Administrator privileges. It does not matter if the user is also a member of the Dynamic File Services group. Navigate to the C:\Program Files\Dynamic File Services folder (or the folder where you installed Dynamic File Services), then issue the command.

DswInventory.exe commandFile [commandFile2...]

IMPORTANT:If remote shares are used in pairs, you must log in as a domain user with Administrator privileges on the DynamicFS server that also has Active Directory rights on the remote shares and NTFS file system access rights on the secondary storage locations. Otherwise, a secondary location is reported as missing. One way to do this is to add the administrator user as a member of the Dynamic File Services Storage Rights group.
