Folder Sensor and Netapp



I am trying to monitor a folder located on a NetApp SAN Location. I know there is a requirement that "the "LanmanServer" Windows service must run on the target computer" which NetApp does.

But i am unable to get this to work. I have tried it with an actual server and it works fine but not with a SAN Loacation. I am using PRTG Network Monitor

I dont even know where to look for errors since in the Log\History I just see changes made to the device\sensor.

Any help is appreciated.

folder lanmanserver netapp

Not sure what the issue was yesterday but i went to check it this morning and it is now working. Looks like it may of just been delayed for some reason.
