Enterprise Vault PST Locator does not scan /vol/vol0 on a NetApp Filer


The standard installation of the ONTAP operating system in NetApp Filers defaults to /vol/vol0The CIFS Server configuration automatically maps the C$ CIFS share to root (/) which corresponds to /vol/vol0. Enterprise Vault PST Locator will scan all volumes available on the Filer as part of normal operation. In order to detect PST files which may be present on /vol/vol0 the scan will first include root (/) as a target and the C$ mapping is intentionally ignored to avoid duplicate scan operations.
Filers on which the standard configuration has been modified due to operating system upgrades or any other administrative purpose, and the C$ mapping no longer points to the volume hosting root (/) may result in the /vol/vol0 volume being ignored by the scan.
