SpaceObServer



Question / Problem

During the analysis of a Novell Share / Unix-Samba Share, the owner of files weren’t recognized. The Novell Share shows "all" and the Samba Share shows "unknown". How does SpaceObServer collects these information?

Answer / Solution

Unfortunately,the Netware Client for Windows provides no information about compression rateor file ownership to the regular Windows API. Some Samba versions do the samein Unix environments. So developers for Netware or Samba have to add a specialsupport functionality. We will provide this functionality in a later version ofSpaceObServer. Allthe other functions are available on Netware drives.
