Monitoring CIFS server on a EMC VNX



What is the easiest way to monitor drivespace on a CIFS server running on a EMC VNX system. I'm just looking to monitor the drive space. The CIFS servers on the VNX emulate a windows server but I can't seem to connect a monitor to it. I saw a couple related articles that look outdated.

Thanks in advance.

thank you very much for your KB-Post. I'm afraid we do not have a suggestion for this to be honest. Did you already try the Share Disk Free Sensor?

best regards

Actually, that was exactly what I was looking for. Was trying the WMI sensors initially and those didn't work. This works as expected. Thanks!
