Sensor: Share Disk Free - Bulk add



I'm looking to monitor the free space for all shares across our File Servers & DFS. The WMI Share Sensor allows me to bulk add, but only gives me share "health/status" and not capacity tracking, trending, alerting. How do I get the benefit of Share Disk Free in a bulk add vs. adding 1 by 1 for 1k shares?

Sorry, for this special sensor types, you cannot really automate the sensor creation process. You could try running a auto discovery on one server and see what you get from that, but that's about it I'm afraid :/

More information about the auto discovery can be found here.

The sensors can't be edited afterwards, otherwise I could give you a script that copies a existing sensor to a list of devices and modifies them to your likings.

Note that this might create many (probably unwanted sensors) sensors that you need to delete afterwards. Let me know if that worked out for you.
