Multiple file-system support
Reports on multiple file systems and operating systems
Novell File Reporter can report on network-stored data on file servers running the following operating systems:
- SUSE® Linux Enterprise
- Novell Open Enterprise Server 2 running either SUSE Linux Enterprise or Virtualized NetWare
- Novell NetWare®
- Microsoft Windows 2003 or 2008 Sever
NFR Agents specific to each of the platforms above, reside on the server where it can examine various data volume types including Novell NSS, Traditional, NCP, NTFS, Reiser, and ext3. The NFR Agents also capture file ownership information from Novell eDirectory™, Microsoft Active Directory, or the SUSE Linux file system.
Through the NFR Agent, Novell File Reporter takes a "scan" of the file system of the storage resource at the moment it is examined. A storage resource can be a server volume, a Novell Storage Manager policy, a network folder path, or a Linux mount point. The scan includes comprehensive information on file types being stored, if these files are duplicated and if so, where they reside, when files were created, when files were last opened, and much more.
