Sorry for resurrecting an old thread but seems like this problem still persists. Trying NDLP 9.3.3 to scan some Novell smb/cifs shares. I was able to "browse" when creating filters.
Are your novell servers configured to support native mode or whatever they call it? e.g. can a windows client without a Novell client on it get to the files over SMB? If so you're probably fine.
The next irritation came with 9.3.4 I think... Do some tests of having some office docs stored on novell shares open all day and periodically auto saving and see if anything blows up and freezes eventually. That was our p4 story. STarted getting complaints of things getting locked up HARD on machines such that people had to reboot to recover. We had to roll back to freakin 9.3.2. Heinous.
Knock on wood, we'll be Novell client free in this client's environment in a few weeks (goodbye to the red N!) and I can finally upgrade without clenching my butt cheeks.
Thanks for your response. I was thinking of an alternative. Map some Novell shares on a Windows system and have NDLP point to that Windows system. It's a little workaround. Have you ever tried this?
I haven't I'm afraid.
Our DLP use case at the time was rather limited to device control, and the big ole steaming heaping McAfee KnowledgeBase - REDIRECTED - Data Loss Prevention Endpoint 9.3 Known Issues entry of "nope" dissuaded me from trying to reinvent the wheel too much.
